Hello all,

Internet not been going for 2 days here - back now catch up later

Done the hanging baskets for Woolston station put up today

I got offered some horse crap so today went and bagged it up now in bin bags at bottom of garden 

I know you are meant to leave it for a while to rot and so not to burn the plants, I guess I then bash it up and put on soil or do I need to bash it up now? me not sure

I got bitten by a bug not sure what on my leg the other day had to go to the doc's today it is infected so painful hard and sore - got penicillin and that taste yuk

want it to go away it hurts

OL - cucumber can be about 15cm or so, and will still have prickles, because they are outside cucumbers.  Greenhouse cucumbers don't have prickles possibly because they are all female cucumbers.  So harvest it, rub prickles off with fingers and enjoy.
