Anyone seen Panda or is she very busy on wedding planning?

If you still have your seed packet, check the variety. If it is an F1, it will not seed true.

Otherwise, let the flowers form seed, when they are Brown and dry, save them in a paper bag, not plastic, to sow next year. Letting the seeds form early in the season will curtail flowering.

I would try and get another packet of seed for a quid.

I love fresh cotton sheets. If I was rich and had someone to do it, I would have fresh sheets every day. Unfortunately I'm a lazy cow, but they get changed every week whether they need it or not.


looking after out door Jasmin

Jasmine is one of my favourite scents.  Followed by rose absolut, lavender, honeysuckle, phlox, 

June and July in England in warm humid weather is intoxicating.

What to do with a blackcurrant glut?

Posted: 17/07/2016 at 21:14

I used to make lots of blackcurrant jam. I strain some to make a jelly with no pips in. A spoonful in hot water is like ribena. Blackcurrant curd makes a good filling for sponge cake.

Since hubby became borderline diabetic, we are  cutting down on sugar, so frozen blackcurrants get added to porridge for the last minute in the microwave.

I'm sat on the patio floating on the scent of jasmine on a warm summer evening. We have had dragonflies zipping around the garden today. I picked another load of sweet peas and a huge  courgette to make courgetti Bolognase.  My friends flight has been delayed so instead of Houston to newark to birmingham, she has to come via frankfurt and will be 10 hours late. I suppose that gives me more time to tidy the front bedroom, Aka the dumping ground.

I've not had the telly on today. The news is getting me down.

I think it's time punkdoc had a really noisy party.
