 Tail end of a hurricane on its way   Wind and heavy rain they say    But then heat returning next week

Cold Calling Experiences

Cheek of some people! Had a policeman call at the door asking if I would help with their enquiries 


had people calling all the time because I would buy something occasionally.  Penny dropped that info on the grapevine suggested they call here.  now I don't buy I have very few trying their luck.  I am always polite unless salesmen are forceful.  

Summer fruiting raspberries

Janet, is your soil alkaline?  


Raspberries will struggle if so.  


First thing to check...a cheap ph tester will tell you 


we can then look further if soil level is fine

Djddee,


lose the grass??? 


Noooooooooooooooooooooo 


what else soothes the soul better than a lawn?  The smell of new mown grass?  What else sets off plants better than grass?  A garden without grass looks incomplete. 


if you feel mowing is beyond you djddee then fine, get rid, but it is gentle exercise


perhaps treat yourself to a small cordless mower....very lightweight, quiet and folds neatly away.  Mowing is little more than walking with it
