Hello all me back

Just watered my garden with a cuppa in my hand.


You watered your garden with tea - interesting


I went back in the garden planted out my broad beans a lot smaller than the ones I planted from Woody.

I have been planting up purple loosestrife that I brought - into a large pond pot and some flag iris (yellow colour I think - they were from next door) into a few pond pots and then freezing my hand and arm putting them in the pond, now 3 pond skaters gained another one

Also had to finish my pack of slug gone - the wool pellets around a few plants around the pond try stop them being eaten

What have Thompson and Morgan sent me?

Normally on the packaging there is a label with your name and address on and the plant name on it too

Hello all

had finished painting my potting table and 10 mins later pissing it down - I am soaked trying to cover it with a sheet of plastic and pegging it trying to keep it there as bit windy as well, want the paint to dry that was the last coat needed - would of done it later Monday but there was a large black smoked bonfire so it stunk in the back garden to be out there

so indoors for a bit until it stops or gets lighter me cold and wet think hairdryer needed to dry and warm me up

Yesterday at the station we cleared an area put up a compost bin - dam lots of nettles stung me painful still sore a bit today, lots of weeding done found so many goodies - little plants hiding under weeds and grasses - grasses self sown in the flower bed, little seedlings honesty and foxgloves

It looks so much neater now still lots to weed as a long flower bed
