More wind and rain today, forcast is good for tomorrow but then back to more rain......

Even though we are near the mountains we hardly ever get snow. Take care all of you in the bad weather.

Beautiful sunshine today 25 degrees on the south facing terrace, but black clouds are now rolling in again and looks like back to rain for the weekend.

Blowing a gale here but no rain at the moment. Mild at 16c!  Fed up with the continuous wind and rain.

We have sunny spells here at the moment, cloud and wind building up. We are also on orange alert like Busy and Obelixx and wind speed expected to be 100km later. Must go and move everything moveable if you know what I mean.

Subscription didn’t arrive(28/12/2017)

I have given up with my subscription as it hardly ever arrived until the middle of the month if at all. Shame as the french magazines aren't a patch on it.

I would say they are scale insects also. You would have thought the vendor might have seen these before selling it to you! I have got rid of scale insects buy dipping a cotton bud in methylated spirit and rubbing it on the insect - they have a quite a hard coating. 

Bell peppers problem

Hi Disardo. Yes this is definitely sun scorch. I live down in SW France near to the Pyrenees and have had the same problem with my tomatoes, although not with the peppers as the leaves have prevented the scorch. Next year I'm going to find shading for the toms. You should probably do the same for your peppers if you are growing them in a very hot place, maybe move the containers if possible during the hottest part of the day?

Hello Nora, thanks for coming back to me. I spoke  to someone in the subscription dept. yesterday. She couldn't account for why it's taking so long for the magazine to reach me. 

It always used to come at the beginning of the month, but now does not arrive until the middle, if at all - I haven't received the July issue so they are sending another one. I am only in France and generally the post is very good. 

Thanks Nora

Hi everyone, am I the only one living abroad who does not receive their magazine until the middle of the month? It's seems to get later and later, I havn't received the July issue yet. Other post gets here quickly enough from the UK, any ideas what the problem is?

Who's nicked my figs?

Posted: 11/06/2017 at 08:57

This is very strange because we have a large fig tree that always produces loads of fruit. A couple of weeks ago when I looked there were plenty forming but now they have all disappeared. The birds don't usually nick them until they are ripe in the autumn. Very strange indeed!
