patience is a virtue

Posted: Yesterday at 13:10

I grow everything from seed and every year I am as excited as the last. I know it's a lot of work but I am rewarded with hundreds of plants that I could never ever dream of buying. It's definitely the waiting game with bienials and perennials, but worth it for me, they never cease to amaze me when they do finally flower.

I think there's quite a difference between sponge and Vic sandwich, sponge can be dry the next day, best eaten on the day they're made, I can do that😀

When I sold eggs, the hens eggs were much sought after but I only had one customer for duck eggs and  none for geese. You don't need many of those on your fry up. Also need a hammer to crack it😀

Is this Ground Elder?

I wouldn't worry about it, schools usually have some rough ground around, if the neighbours  dont like it they can put a barrier down, it doesn't go that deep. I've stopped it from several places in my garden.

i think it's beneficial to something, can't think what off hand,

Would be good on shallow rooted weeds, it snapped the root on the dandelion though, but it will take a while to grow back again, so thumbs up.
