HELLO FORKERS! June Edition

Posted: 26/06/2016 at 18:29

The lawns got cut finally, along with the harebells at the front of the wild flower border. I planted some ammi visnage plugs, and picked a bowl full of raspberries. I fleeced them to keep the blackbirds off. It's very loose but flaps about and that seems to do the job.


Tied up the sweet peas and picked three. Lots of buds on but they need sunshine.


Have a good evening folks.

Pat, Galapagos is on my bucket list. It might need a lottery win first, though.

No good emailing them to me, I only post the ones it'll let me . I'm sure there is a way to resize on a MacBook, but I can't be bothered.  Can anyone explain why the same camera on the same settings produces such differing file sizes?


It's wet outside, time for coffee and a soak in the bath I think.

Add in ripped up newspaper. Not the shiny mag stuff, but most other is good. I have a pile of dry leaves that I mix in with grass cuttings to stop the cuttings getting slimy.

I would just deadhead after the flowers die off. Then prune it down as usual next March.
