15 mins after all the wet stuff was hung out, it began RAINING.It's all wetter than before I started.  :- (  Need cake.

Frank, we love ancient history. I'll be very interested to hear your comments on the WW2 farm programme.

Kate, if he's planted 12 of the things, it's a bid for world domination. If I were you I'd expose any roots your side and give them an 'accidental' spray of something nasty ;- )

obelixx so how deep do corn root grow.

Morning folks. Slow start after long tiring day yesterday manning a stall at the local 'Rustic Fayre' (yes I know, I wouldn't spell it like that either ). Proper rain held off for most of the day, just came down about half an hour before the end so large gazebo thoroughly soaked by packing up time. As is the way of these things, there were just two of us left to pack up the van and unload it at the other end. One of the people who usually helps was at the Edinburgh Tattoo! I'd love to go and see it one day, trying to persuade OH that next year is a good idea. We have sun this morning so I'd better ger the wet canvas walls out of the car and hang them up to dry.

Such fun ;- )

Hurrah! New Gardening Prog.

Claire, 'Nigel helping out' - just for a moment there this Archers listener had visions of the late lamented Mr Pargeter showing us how to tend our grapevines ;- )

I would like to thank those upthread who gave instructions for finding Beechgrove. I've just watched the one I recorded and enjoyed it very much.

Jean, the forecast looks a bit dire for tomorrow, your pygmies may survive another day.

Dean :- D I'm sure your man's taking it one day at a time.

Pepper dog is only laid back and good when he's getting his own way. I think he quickly got over any shyness, Glyn, he kept sitting up like a meerkat, waving his front paws about and barking for attention! Anyway, he's very tired after all the excitement.

I have a mousie invasion in my bin cupboard at the moment. I use humane traps and put sunflower hearts in them which works a treat. If I have time I take them to the field a few minutes walk away and let them go behind the bus-stop. Otherwise they have to go down the end of the garden. Four caught so far. They are woodmice and extremely cute with their big eyes and big ears, I just wish they'd stay outside.

That's a worthwhile thought, Dove. The first owner of this garden had 4 espalier apple trees growing down the centre; only two are left and they're not exactly trained now. Concorde is one that I like but Doyenne du Comice is my absolute favourite so I'll have to check out pollinators.
