The kaki tree

the article says pick in October and ripen on a sunny window sill! Where are we going to get one of those from

i wouldn't describe them as custard like, I love them but they are very seasonal.

i don't think they would grow in many places in this country. Has anyone grown one on this site I wonder.

Raining again, just when we had a big job down in Cornwall, not worth the drive down if its like this.

And...the battery just packed up on the car. Oh well, woe is me. Perhaps I am starting the winter blues!

I had a big white German Shepherd who was petrified of fireworks or thunder and he would try to get in the most stupid places far too small for him, like the back of the video cabinet. I would have to take him to bed with me then he would hide under the dressing table.
Good to see you back Steve x

Saw them do this on tv the other night, cut it down to six inches then inject the weedkiller directly down the stalks, lots of it. Probably need to do it a few times but thst was one of the big gardens, cant remember now which one.

I always keep this years cuttings in the cold greenhouse for the first winter, plant out in the Spring when they are hardened off.

I alway freeze the skinny milk, can only shop once a week, so freezer is a must, you do need to shake it, but only the first time, after that it's absolutely the same as if it was fresh.

Fairygirl, how about starting a thread on The Cra**y bits.

My floor usually get to bad for the steamer, the only way is to scrub it, in and out of the garden a lot and can't be bothered to take boots off all the time.

Hosta, thought that holiday was too good to be true, hope yours vans ready and camera will be in use later. Couldn't you leave a pint of milk in the freezer, it takes only seconds to run it under the tap and get enough for a cuppa. I buy skimmed for the week and keep it in the freezer.

back to my disasterous garden... I didn't sow enough annuals to fill gaps and what I did sow got eaten by rabbits, as we all agree, the weather wasn't good at the beginning so nothing planted out until mid June here. My sweet peas are in bud now!

I am determined to be better organised, I did have mum to look after last winter/Spring, I have lots of seeds and thanks to Nut and some other kind people,  I have some lovely new plants to pot up and grow on.

I don't  think I posted a pic of the overall garden, just the best bits,

Thats my moans over for the day, as my parcel has just come from Nut, I am off to thengreenhouse.


Wierd ice like stuff on grass

I would be more worried about your daughter playing on the grass where the dog goes than the fungus.

Seems we all have mucky kitchen floors and bulbs to plant.

Glad it's not just me. I chucked the steamy thing out, it's a hand and knees job not.

I was so disillusioned with my garden this year and I think that's is why I can't be bothered to put the bulbs in. I have hundreds to go in the ground and I know I will regret it next Spring when nature does here best to cheer us at the end of winter.

I would love for someone to be here with me and give me a boost.

Well enough of those thoughts!  Off to Morrisons this morning as we have a big job down Cornwall tomorrow.

Have a good day, workers and shirkers, hope Hosta's van is mended, bruise going off a bit and OH home safe, Doc can set himself one little task, DD mops her floor, and everything else everyone needs to do.
