Great work Caroline, I'm sure you will reap the rewards next year.

New allotment OMG...Part 2...

Hi GWRS, I'm growing a red Autumn onions from sets called Electric. It did really well last year in a raised bed, I've tried Autumn sets directly on the plot but they struggle as in wet winters they tend to rot.

I've grown Red Baron in the Spring but compared to my white onions in the same bed they were poor.

Are you in the UK? It's very late to be planting leeks if you are. They won't grow very much now as winter will be upon us soon.

Dogs urinating on front garden

Posted: 05/10/2017 at 18:17

As a dog owner I have to accept that there are a lot of ' selfish' owners. But that simply mirrors society in general. I've had more than one ' mind your own business' confrontation when owners have blatantly let their dogs ' crap' and don't pick it up, in the same vein I've done the same with litter droppers.

Strangely it's been a good year in the South of England, we had warm weather in the early summer and the plants romped away. We ended up with 25 ripe squash from 4 plants. In my experience squashes always take longer to establish and get going than courgettes, this year they got going much better than normal.

That looks like a blackcurrant bush.
