Yep Busy, I've tried all of the things that usually help the bites I often get while at the allotment, they never swell up like this, it doesn't even itch that much, just blimmin stingy! Mustn't mope too much. I think I may do some light gardening afterall. Even if it's just tidying away some of the posts and compost that seem to collect in unsuitable places.

 Not a guitar, but, well you get the idea,

Would you be interested in altering it a little? With a bigger hole I can sort of imagine some trailing plants sort of spilling out of the sound hole(?) I'm imagining some white bacopa or lobelia for some reason, with dark foliage, reminiscent of sheet music? I only suggest opening up the sound hole thing just so there's more light and room for them to tumble, but I suppose if you put enough compost in then there's not much call to open it really. Bacopa is very small, but plentiful, I bought one for 89p and it's grown in size a lot already. Maybe a climbing ivy may find itself wrapping its way up the fretboard too... Can you tell I love this idea??

Miserable day today, was bitten/stung at the allotment yesterday and my entire thigh has swollen up considerably, and painfully, and now I've neither the energy or inclination to even tidy up the garden, let alone go to the allotment. *sigh* nothing will stop the pain and itchiness either, I've tried all the usual suspects.

OH is going to cheer me up with a bath and burgers with the lettuce I've grown. He's a good egg! Hope you've all enjoyed the weather, it seems most of Worcester did, for once the shop was rather quiet today!

thanks for the reminder, watched beechgrove a couple of weeks ago, and liked it, so will return to it.

We've got lots of seeds, it's just a matter of improving and breaking down the soil, it's still compacted and unsuitable to sow in. Another week or two, but I'm very very aware time is marching on!

I must admit I didn't know it was such a slow provider. If it does take so long, then I don't mind prioritising something else that will give results a little sooner, as the aim is to get as much in now as we can, so we don't feel we've wasted too much time this year.

I just think it's nice everyone who's a regular, without a personal vendetta against certain aspects of GW.. ahem... respects each other, which I think it really important and the main reason I now I have a stab at helping some people's questions. I wouldn't have dared to do that to begin with. I've grown in both confidence and imagination in regards to my gardening thanks to y'all!
