Copper tape

Posted: 02/05/2016 at 15:06

We also have some old copper pipe around the one Hosta that I have in the soil. Tape around those in pots. If anyone has a B&M shop nearby they have it at a good price but I've forgotten the cost as I stock piled it last year.  

Anyone brave enough to plant out runner beans yet?

Poor Wonky  Naughty Dove  I had to read back. For a few seconds I thought Pdoc had eaten smoked cat   Glad you enjoyed your break Pdoc.

Grotty weather here typical Bank hols I feel sad for peeps who wanted to get out and about on their day off. 

Not much happening here, some plants have gone into GH to toughen up in between showers  I took my car for a run down the dual carriage way as it hasn't been out for a while and the poor thing got wet !! 

Hope the Gerbils aren't lonely if Dove & Co are out for the day

I have steamed it after being frozen and it's nice using my method but as S Violet says it is also good in other dishes, Chicken Sag and really any curry  Vegetable bakes & pasta bakes and lots of meals.

I planted early last year they germinated on 24 /4 in a cold GH in S. Yorks and planted out on 15/5  thankfully we didn't have any more frosts, they were very slow to establish and I didn't get beans any earlier. I sowed mine last week in GH and as yet no sign of them.
