Completely new to veg growing

Posted: 30/12/2012 at 10:21

Get a good gardening book to refer to and also refer to this handy site for information.Start with easy veg and fruit and before long you will be expert,The main thing is to enjoy what your doing and learn from your mistakes(you will make some) and ask those who garden locally to you to give you advice on the growing conditions of your area.(good way of making friends).and  of course always enjoy a hot cuppa while viewing your results.

Ooh I love a bargain!

I like the plants that are sold off  in supermarkets,had a few could bargains there,it makes you feel so much better about spending.

I have to say I hate wind chimes that are like doorbells gone wrong.My neighbour ,bless,has these annoying clanging tubes blowing about and disturbing the peace.He does not sit in  the garden and does not have his windows open to listen to the noise of it! I will have to admit to dislodging it one night (with a long pole) where it now lays forlorn  on the floor,he has not even noticed.

very clever use of cans,they look great.

drought vs to much rain.

Posted: 30/12/2012 at 09:54

I think it was lack  of sunshine and sodden ground rotting some root vegetables,some of my plants did well because this was weather they liked others it was opposite.Now will I plant more drought resistant plants or swamp plants of the amazon.?Who ever is doing the rain dance please stop now.

Yellow patches on lawn

Well if its not your dog(you can use tomato juice to stop this,that is what I have been told but how?do you make the dog drink it or do you pour it on the lawn) it might be local wildlife or a fungi ,hopefully not honeyfungus.

Toads

be careful not to disturb to much of the bottom pond life as Dragonfly larvae develop in the bottom (they take 7 years before they become a dragonfly)and most things hibernate in winter.

Toads are good for the garden as are frogs,they live out of the pond after mating time and mine live in the garage under shelves e.t.c. .They are lovely to listen to when the mating season starts along with the frogs.Toads walk as frogs hop.
