I have just lifted one container of main-crop potatoes as they had the dreaded blight-the earlies strangely are untouched-weighed them -3 lb from 4 tubers -again not bad but they would have got bigger

Can see flowers appearing on french beans

I have never experienced this but am aware of pouring glyphosate into cut stems- at this time of year whilst it is actively growing I would repeatedly spray the leaves every 2/3 weeks with a glyphosate spray- at least that will weaken it and stop its progress

Jean-welcome to our world and if anyone elses wants to join this is not a closed shop, gang or clique just people who ramble on about absolute trifling matters most of the time -all lottery winnings are shared is the only hard and fast rule-and I haven't seen a cent yet

OH has bought a ticket as well-with the phrase you never know-but I think I do-she is not aware of the T&C's regarding winnings

Buyer deterrents-walking up and down outside in a thong ,talking loudly on a phone,dropping syringes outside,sharp intakes of breath about subsidence.

We are promised sun later -it is muggy now

I got an inflatable glove and a flag with the paper at the weekend-flag is fluttering outside-hand I blew up and let down again-not sure what I am supposed to do with it

I didn't tinkle but watched embarrassed presenters on Breakfast tinkling

Morning all -this looks like the last of the hot ones

I will keep Jenny's tips in mind if I don't like the cut of the jib of any potential buyers-don't want any riff-raff round here.

I think there may be a third instlament for the hoarde chappie to come

I am really excited about today and the lympics
