HELLO FORKERS!

I make an easy veggie bake using a layer of courgettessprinkling of sliced onions, ,a layer of tomatoes,layer of sliced par boiled potatoes, bit of broccoli, pour a jar of carbonara sauce over(the stuff you can buy for making lasagne with)  and then grated parmesan. Bung in oven for 30 mins then eat.. You can vary veg according to what you have. Can change potatoes for sweet potatoes or squash or even pasta. (course that makes it a pasta bake.)

My sweetcorn are leaning at a funny angle, but the roots are still in place .OH said I could stake them to get them upright again. what all 70? They look like the cobs have set. The only problem is that it makes it too easy for the squirrels to nick the cobs.

All of a sudden the onions seem to be buried in weeds.I thought they were doing well. A bit of hand weeding is due I think.   Sunny here this afternoon. still windy.

Grow Blueberries in Pots or Direct in Garden?

If your soil is not acidic, then grow blueberries in large pots of ericaceous compost. You need more than one variety to cross pollinate to get a decent crop.

Ooh that wasn't there when I looked earlier. Sorry, Daintiness.

Help

1. Hibiscus syriacus  Bluebird.

2. cut them off just above the soil

3. cut off the flower head after it has died, leaving as much leaf as possible to build up the corm for next year.

Echeveria up here in the midlands, collapse into a mush with the first frost. I also have gritty soil. The offsets root easily to keep on a windowsill indoors over winter.

WEEDS

What weedkiller did you use?'

Some are persistent and will last three years. Glyphosate needs the plant to be in the light so the weedkiller is transported to the roots. It is inactivated in soil.

Black plastic left on soil for a full year will kill most weeds.

I dug some stray potatoes up today. Leftovers from last year. This year I didn't plant any fresh because I thought that for the return they were a waste of space. They made fantastic roasties. Now, do I order new seed potatoes for next year or not.?

It's been wet here today, but I think we have missed the worst of the weather.

Time for bed. Night,night everyone.
