The suns up here ,verdun. You can come and help me plant up the courgette plants if you want. Pimms on the patio at 5 ish.
I have a load of seedlings of bishops babies that are doing a lot better than expensive tubers I bought from the garden centre. They're not named varieties this year, but I pick the best seedlings and label and overwinter. My large yellow is currently four foot tall and budding up. It was grown from seed two years ago.
If no 6has big leaves more likely escallonia than ceonothus
6 . ceonothus
4 and 7 same plant, wood avens. horrible weed, I put loads in the bin today. I try and pull the little yellow flowers off before they seed and form "bobbys buttons" that stick everywhere.
What are you planning on growing.?
Big seeds can be spaced apart in a tray or planted in its own pot (eg sunflowers or cucumbers). small seed like lettuce are better in a larger tray, scattered thinly.
its a bit late for pumpkins. you can sow oriental leaves and salad lettuce leaves now.
I sowed some last Sunday and they have already germinated. I expect to be cutting them to use in salad in three weeks.
i'm getting ready for bed, too.
A hedgehog is snuffling around the patio. thats twice this week we've seen him/her.
Now hes just got to go and eat some of those slugs. I think he prefers foxes dinner instead.
That was my thought too.
It appears to parasitise caterpillars of emperor moths. another one to look out for.
Thats the one. Well done fishy. I'm glad it doesn't have a sting.
A bit different from the one I saw on the fennel last year, that had a long ovipositor.
Another bug to add to the list. The less i do, the more I find....
