What not to grow

Posted: 16/07/2014 at 15:50

I once grew gherkins outside, huge crop, nothing wrong with them at all but at the end of the season how many pickled gherkins can two people eat ?

Only other thing I can think of Pansy is to give them an organic liquid feed, I'm not saying they aren't in a rich bed just thought it can't hurt the lazy things. You could swear at them

Hi all, glad you are presentable Panda. Only read what is on this page so soz if I've missed stuff. 

Me and OH have had a lovely few hours with Fidget

Her garden has changed so much since my visit in May...was lovely then with late spring flowers and now Summer has arrived big fashion  

We had refreshments outside and on a feeder not four feet from OH we had finches feeding and then a robin who seems to have acquired off floor feeding skills. He/she visited a number of times  Squirrel visited and more birds than we could count came to garden feeders. Bit early in the day for the foxes  Hedgehogs had left a few pressies on the lawn.

I'm not as wildlife friendly as Fidget as I'd be miffed about the vole scoffing my cucumbers

Not only have we seen great plants /flowers but impressed with her veg & fruit which I tasted en route. Also we have home made jam for our toast in the morning

OH also got a turn in the swinging thing  & no he can't have one !

Came home and watered pots and spent a leisurely time on patio podding peas which have now been eaten

Have a great evening all and hope you sleep as happily as I will.

OH might be a bit restless as concrete coming in morning for GH base, joking two neighbours have offered help and we have their wheelbarrows already on site.
