So fed up with all this rain!!!!

I took my son to the IOW as he loved fossils and he interogated the poor chap who had spent 3 years cleaning the same  fossil !!

Help someone else who suffers from seasickness and it will make you feel better !!

Well it might !!

If your garden / plot is big enough you can plan a pond or design a raised bed or learn about rotation or follow on planting or "dealing with clay soil "

After 3 seasons on my allotement I now know that I dont know what I dont know !!

In other words Nature is amazing and very very challenging 

The local vicar was looking over the fence at the garden of a new arrival who had at last tamed his garden

"Look how well Gods Garden is looking today " to which the chap said " Yes Vicar  but you should have seen it when he had it on his own " 

No offence meant

Just started reading a book by a Canadian soil expert called "Improving your soil " by Keith Reid

Im taking this damp opportunity to become a very boring expert on soil so I can allienate my fellow Allotmenteers every time we meet !!

Perhaps you could take one subject and improve your knowledge so when you  "get out and on it " you are more knowledgable

Kale Seedlings

Posted: 11/11/2014 at 13:52

I sowed just 6 kale seeds in a tray and I now have 13 seedlings because there were some other seeds in the compost I got from my local GC

I have looked on the interweb as we call it in Bristol and still cant seem to be able to identify a kale seedling so I can then plant out ONLY the kales

Help please

Indoor pepper Plants - Winter Care

I have 5 pepper plants that I inherited and they have now all stopped producing peppers

The leaves are slightly folded over and not that healthy looking

I must of had about 8 of all 5 so not very good

? Is it worth keeping them over the winter and if so what do I do to prepare them for next spring
