unknown greenhouse seedling

It is a bit early to say in my opinion-let it grow for a few weeks then ask again-it might be a cucumber but don't put any money on my answer.

 

more coming soon

Can't help it, but I keep reading sotongeoff as stroganoff !

Would you like me to change it??

You would know because not all verges have been cut-and some are half-cut-there is a joke there somewhere.

I am not sure about that line of defence-but it might be accepted in mitigation

The reason I ask is that some do and some don't -this morning despite my dislike of him I did because it looks neater-the verges have not been cut for 2 months and the grass is now over a foot high in places-I was told 2 weeks ago that it would be done- surprisingly 2 weeks ago

But he would not have cut it if I didn't.

Have contacted council

Has this now convinced you that an early start does not always pay off-and will you have forgotten that in 8 months?

I have sown four french beans a pot in 3 pots indoors to replace the snaffled bean plants but time marches on-the runners are slowly creeping to the top of the supports-but everything is behind and am working to a deadline.

Would you phone the police if they were in nasty neighbours garden or supply trowel and a carrier bag

If you had grass verges that had not been cut -would you cut them yourself- and if you did, would you just do your half of a shared strip?

Poor old Roy looked like the lonely uncle who had come to a party but wanted to be anywhere but there-he has put a positive spin on it by pointing out they did not lose a game in normal time the whole tournament.

AVB to Spurs?

I will not but any more plants, I will not go to B&Q on Wednesday

What did you get done in the garden?

Ash is the Surrey village where I lived as a man-child.

There is this spot 12 yards away-the object of the game is to get a ball in a place that is 24 ft x8 ft with a bloke in the way from that spot-the bloke cannot move until you hit the ball-now play.

I have 2 questions -what happened to the four pace rule for goal keepers and why was there an Italian player out on the wing constantly unmarked who was constantly passed to?

what to do with overgrown patch

The problem is every-time you dig over the soil you are bring weed seeds to the surface and they germinate-I am a bit confused as to why you keep digging it over-have you actually tried growing something in the area?

No plant that I am aware of will get rid of weeds-you seem to be hinting at green manure perhaps- but that is more digging in

If you hoe off the weeds as they appear that is a good control-pernicious weeds like dandelions need pulling out or treating with a weed killer.

What sort of veg do you want to grow?

Day lily not flowering

I think it is just a matter of waiting-you could try a high potash food similar to this

http://www.gardendirect.co.uk/garden-care/fertilisers/soluble-feeds/high-potash-feed

it might not produce a result this year but perhaps for next-just for the record mine have been flowering for the past week so don't give up hope yet.

Another sad chicken story

I haven't been to village fete since my Ash days-are they allowed to sell cakes or is that now verboten?
