Saw on the news an item about Abu Hamza's trial or appeal and someone in the crowd outside was holding up a placard which  said ' SLING YOUR HOOK'.

Good morning all,

I'm worried about Inka after seeing that clip with the deer. I thought it was only her plants she had to worry about.

I have a confession. i didn't watch SCD but I'll make an effort to watch tonight so I can keep up with you all. I did watch John Bishop, though. Brilliant!

Sorry about your plot, Dean. It's not the money with these kind of crimes, it's the time that people put into their gardens.

Don't think it should be flowering now.

It must be coming up to winter. The visitors have gone home and the ducks have come to my pond for a free hand-out. I never see them all summer, but they've only been here three days and they already know that when I feed the chickens they get a handfull of corn too.

Lovely photo, Pam.  Is it weigela. I've got a paler pink one with a few flowers on now but I think they usually flower earlier than this.

To raspberry or not to raspberry?

I think even bags of horse manure from garden centres have been found to  have weedkiller in. It is sprayed on the crops that the straw came from, used for bedding for the horses.  It is safest to get manure straight from the field. Even if the horse eats some of the straw it is harmless to the horse but the weedkiller is still active in the manure.

Also raspberries are shallow rooted and when planting the roots should be spread out just a couple of inches under the surface.

We all have to economise now, Jean. I wonder if I can buy a cheap slave?

We had a commodore 64. Thought it was fantastic playing those ping pong games. No wonder todays youngsters think there were dinosaurs when I was growing up.

Going back to pee. That was the biggest export from Newcastle not coal. It was used in the tanning business. Everything has it's uses. What a job, going round collecting the contents of chamber pots!
