Dove, Hosta might correct me but I think the blighters are more partial to green & variegated ones. My bluish one, name  is usually okay.

Frit so soz to read about the b....y fox

DD fingers crossed that Shadow improves overnight x

Got a lot done here at manic speed as rain was due at 4pm..not a drop  Only thing that has dropped is the temperature  I decided against a water meter so use my hose on the veg and some plants ..but can't afford any new clothes 

If this was Yours ...

Cucumber strange black spots on stem?

Hi Austin 

I don't want to be alarmist but to me in that first picture the cumber looks diseased. I would remove it. Cucumbers need good clean compost and I suspect the problem is in the compost. I grow mine in purchased multi purpose compost that I expect to be disease free. Cumbers should be grown in sterilised garden soil or new compost.

Good morning 

Was someone offering sausage rolls and slices of finger 

DD I hope Shadow recovers quickly.

Glad the beer was enjoyed Hosta.

Happy new home to Matty's daughter.

I have some more weeding to do and peas to plant out, and a GH to wash.
