Growing Pumpkins Vertically

Cool!  I thought you were going to say that they wouldn't germinate, but I'm chuffed with that.  I'll wait and see

Growing Pumpkins Vertically

Umm, I've planted a couple of seeds I saved from last year's Hallowe'en pumpkin bought in Tesco.  What do you think my chances are?

Absolutely beautiful!

May In Your Garden

@ Dean, I have the baby brother to your greenhouse, and hubby swore never again after building it!  So worth it though.

@ Inkadog, respect to your friend! Wow!

@ Wintersong, beautiful pics as ever

Fabulous sunny day here in Pembrokeshire.  Didn't do much in the garden, too busy trying to get as much washing done and out while the drying is free!  I sowed more Lollo Rossa, Rocket and mixed leaf salad, and some pumpkins.  I saved some seeds from a shop bought pumpkin last Hallowe'en after my plant failed, so I'm not sure how well they will do.  Also sowed some Cat Grass to try to tempt Marmite to stay home a bit more, out of the neighbours' garden.  Fingers crossed!

 Found one, but I thought I had better pics than this.  I was literally arm's length away from them at times!

Yes I did, I tend to follow her around with a camera, because I know that sooner or later she will do something dopey.  I have a series of shots of her learning to climb a tree for instance .

I'm trying to find pics of baby blue tits, but I think they are on hubby's camera.

Blummin cat! 4yo daughter just came in clutching a dunnock. "Look what I found in the cat's mouth" OMG!

I love her... usually, although she can be... challenging . My neighbour however... different story!

That is my cat, I'm not sure who is stalking who!  I've seen Marmite try to take on a seagull - loon.

 Excuse the bad quality of the second, it was taken from my kitchen window on my phone.

 Does this count?

The wrong kind of birds

Posted: 07/05/2012 at 16:24

I got squirrel cages to keep the larger birds off our feeders, and it helps.  I have crows, magpies, starlings and jackdaws (which nest in my chimney... but I wouldn't say I "let" them) and it keeps all of them out of the feeders.  They take food from the bird table, leaving the little birds in peace.  BTW, my neighbour also has squirrel cages, but the starlings get in to hers, so choose carefully
