You know how to grow things well Chris but clearly a lot of hard work has gone into it 

What is your weather like? (2)

Been hot for most of the day but getting cloudy now.  Could be some rain GD .....oops! As I write this the sun is out and all back to summer 

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

Cold Calling Experiences

Posted: 01/09/2016 at 15:24

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

lose the grass??? 


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
