Piddled it down here all day. My intentions of digging over the area at the back of the pond has come to nothing.

Tomorrow is another day.

What's eating my beetroot, Swiss chard & pea seedlings??

If they are nibbling it's the slimers.

 Pigeons tend to take the whole seedling with beetroot. I have lost rows of the stuff.

Don't put seeds into plastic bags, they sweat and then rot. I use junk mail envelopes cut up and sellotaped.

For posting, I then put the little packets into an ordinary envelope to post.

All right plant pauper, what sort of hairbrush?

It's a necessity in this house, although hubby does like borrowing my Mason Pearson.

No tennis so h***w**k to catch up on. Washer on, dishwasher on, hubby fed.

I spent all morning digging out bindweed out of the claggy clay corner,mixed in six bags of home made compost,  and planted  6 quite large dahlias to fill the gap.  I was just going to water them in when the heavens opened. I guess I can water them in later.

What is this plant, please?
