Guerilla Gardening

Well done Hefty. That's so lovely.

I started a gorilla garden three years ago on a strip by our house. I've put in rhubarb, gooseberries and raspberries as well as plants from my garden that I couldn't find a home for. I weed it every couple of weeks. Very satisfying.

Lots of greenhouse doings! Potted up cornflowers and cucumelons, cosmos and dahlias. Planted out lupins and verbascums.  Planted out a solitary runner bean to satisfy my irrational craving to get them going! Also put netting over new runner bean frame and made bird scarers out of strips of foil. Other half says it looks like something out of back to the future!

Anyone brave enough to plant out runner beans yet?

Thanks all. I will sit tight.

hello - has anyone planted out runner bean plants yet?  Too much risk of another frost?

Anyone up for a little experiment? Could be fun?

Hi Chicky

great that yours has lots of flower buds. Are they standing upright? 

Mine is still in the cold frame. Not brave enough to plant it out yet. Might do so next weekend. 

Interesting loooking plant. Curious to see what it'll be like in full flower.

Ah thanks. Whoever it belonged to was definabley into those colours as that's all we find.....oh, other than the bricks, rubble and plastic bags of cable that we have found!

The Viking Way walk runs by our house so we get a fair few detectorists about.

hello

been digging over a new bed and keep finding bits of blue and white pottery. 

Is this quite common? My house is quite new and built on a former agricultural field. it seems to be all over the place.

Wear gloves Julie - industrial ones! I got some on my hands and they honked for days! I even tried bleach but it didn't get rid of the stench. 

I vowed never ever to make the stuff again. The honk was like nothing I have ever smelt before.
