Watering whilst on holiday

Posted: 28/08/2014 at 20:57

 How about using small water bottles like this, I get mine from tesco, six for a pound, they will slowly drip into you planter, hope this helps

Thanks Marion, yes I've heard it's nice next week, just when I'm back in work too , but my brother is off next week so I hope he enjoys it, think he's going to Scarborough for a few days, we have relatives there too, you sound like you've been very busy harvesting mmm I like peppers especially with a nice juicy steak .

I checked on my tomatoes and I counted twelve, they are small and green at the moment, I also checked on my curly Kale, the ones on the top shelf i'm a little worried about as some of the bottom leaves have gone yellow, do they need watering more??

Tootles, I know how you feel, I work 40 hours a week and sat every three weeks, do the lottery every week but no such luck yet, but on the other hand work pays the bills, just a shame u have to spend half your life in work, hope I've not put everyone on a downer 

Things that make you go mmmmmm

That photo looks really good, it's like a picture you would see in a magazine , I was only saying to my husband the other day, that you must never have to shop for veg,fruit or salad, when we get our second house I will make sure it has a bigger garden  And live off our own food, at least you know nothing as been sprayed on it, they weather is changing again, I kept getting chased by bees today when I was trying to cut my evergreen, so it's only half cut ha, got my weeding done and my big chrysanthemums planted, have you got rain in the south yet?
