It's a democracy. Those who didn't vote can't complain.

Slightly more than half of those who voted voted out, the rest in. The reasons why are likely to have been shaped by individual circumstances and experiences, and that should be respected. I don't see why this should degenerate into a slagging off contest. We lost some valuable members of the forum last time, they are missed.

Time to respect others opinions and move on.

Ist one looks like apple tree leaves. Has it got a climber coming through it.?

Can you trace it back to the base and see. ?

If its an apple, your neighbours will not be happy f you chop it back. Ask the neighbours if it is bothering  you.

Red onion bulbs wont wait, get them in now.

Mushrooms grow best in damp humid weather, now sounds ideal. If we have a heatwave, Autumn is the usual time.

I don't think you have time to get chillis and peppers to fruiting size. Save for next year.

The rhubarb is perennial so grow it on and plant out. From seed to pulling sticks is three years.
