Hi Biofreak. I've been sowing and planting my veggies and ornamentals according to the lunar calendar and everything is looking very good apart from clematis being blasted off their supports by strong winds.
Noted with interest that the farmer planted the field behind me with spuds on a roots day and now has some fine healthy greenery poking through and looking sturdy. The ones planted by another farmer in a neighbouring field just 3 or 4 days later are only just showing through so are well behind.
I am about to start a comfrey tea for my plants and would be very interested in the black spot recipe. I have very little of it but Zephirine Drouhin has come back this year after doing nothing last year and she always gets a bit.
