OH has been bounced from the gastropub he stayed in last night, as the receptionist that took his booking on Sunday, booked him in in July, and they are full tonight. However the new hotel looks better.

Sunny here for most of the day but a bit windy. I cleared most of the weeds out of the veg patch, soon be ready for planting.

Verbena bonariensis cuttings I took off some plants three weeks ago have rooted well. I love freebies.

The slugs are out in force so a trip to lidl for some cheap beer, and I filled up lots of slug pubs around the garden. I knew all those little glass ramekins the puddings come in would be useful.

Scatter thinly on soil in plug trays outside or in a cold frame. When they have grown, plant each plug individually.

Put a few saucers or ramekins of beer down. They cant resist it and drown.

What's eating my peas?

Enviromesh has tiny holes in to let water and light in but not butterflies. You can get it online or from most garden centres.

Hot composters

You could line your compost bin with sheets of expanded polystyrene. That would keep the heat in better. I use a an old compost bag on top of my heap. Some use pieces of old carpet. Anything that keeps the heat in will help it to decompose faster.

Well, I hope it doesn't bounce in my direction.

I love Bishops children as well. I have two dozen potted up and growing nicely, plus 6 for Mrs G.
