The Clitheroe kid.

Forerunner of the little crankie

Lesley I have a memory of an elephant. I'm 56 but have a head full of rubbish. No wonder I can't remember plant names.

I remember Jimmy Clitheroe he once posted his house keys to himself so he wouldn't lose them on a day out  Used to be on Saturday teatimes and was family viewing for us.

cerinthe seeds, when to gather

Posted: 03/06/2014 at 16:58

Hi Pdoc I'm not sure but I might have a flower head / stalk. Perhaps hallucinating.

First off Clari, I once joined a website about keeping chickens, planned on living in Greece but didn't come to happen. So I think I googled keeping chicken in Greece. Won't help with UK but plenty of info' and members all over world. Soz I'm no more help. Newsletter by email each month.

Sun came out at 1pm in at 1.10pm have been hoeing and doing & filling re-cycling with weeds that I don't compost, fleece on and off all afternoon. 

Verdun Mum has a flamingo it has grown too big but new growth lower is lovely so that gets a severe cut down ASAP.

Dove I'm sure you'll get your rosemary growing.

Panda, don't Panda's like brollies ?  I don't but I don't get wet fur  Glad today been okay, it will only continue to get better or Auntie KEF will have to pay a visit

Fidget  Soz you rained off but grin from me cos brugmansia now has two pods. Keeping OH away in case he thinks they are okra   

OH has been sneaky today I didn't know about secret stash of toffee from my Mum..apparantly for him  !!  He didn't think I would risk my teeth.

However just as he was hiding a piece in his cheek I showed him what we'd caught in a beer trap as I was re-filling them  He didn't eat anymore   

See you all later

Peanuts please can I hijack your thread?

My Veronica that was bought a few weeks ago has now finished all it's flowers. Do I cut it back ? If so will it flower again? It has plenty of new growth at the base. I thought it flowered all May & June.

Clearing a garden

Mr Toast, there might be some local people who would like the plants you are getting rid of, they might even come and dig them up if they can have them   A shame to just destroy them.

Thanks OL I have netting to stop birds and cabbage whites on brassicas, the twigs form a boundry until plot is full so my little mates with whiskers don't go digging Doesn't look great but it works for me.

My first earlies should be ready planted 10th March but I'm waiting until sacks dry out before I empty one to investigate, that's one of my fav jobs. Sacks were almost full to top then I stopped topping up.
