Been another hot day today. (this is where I would put a smilie with sunglasses)
Busy day but no gardening ....except pulling carrots, spring onions, lettuce and radishes.
Looks like a promising week ahead. (smilie)
Looks like a gossipy forum today.......ah! That's cos it's all girls
.........oops! I'll get my coat

Come on Mike. You won't leave us now. If you do it will be because you choose to. Don't always agree with you.......I'm argumentative with anyone and anything....but always read your posts.
The computer? Wouldn't.....couldn't ...be without it. So useful, so convenient and such a fantastic communication tool. I can't spend hours on it ....I would be bored....but, esp with the iPad, has replaced reading the newspaper at brekkie for example.
Sorting out business stuff can be done in minutes on the computer. Arranging meetings, deliveries, purchases, emails, photos, etc etc
I would certainly miss not having my computer
Mike, get yours fixed pronto.

Morning everybody......nice and sunny. In for good day I think
Most of my echinaceas are about to open despite being cut back as are varieties of leucanthemum. A quiet walk around the garden shows what is good, will be good or not so good. It's when impulse drives me to "tinker" but I must resist ......!
At last runner beans are all near the tops of the frame.......they are so late for me this year but I'm sure a little foraging will reveal small beans
Hope today will be good for all of you. (smilie)

Talkback: Garden pests

Morning JPSterckx
Not convinced by the sacrificial lettuce theory. It simply attracts more slugs that will then move on to other plants
More slugs and snails this year than ever before, I think, but a combination of (limited) pellets and hand picking is effective.
Certain plants are more attractive than others ar certain times of the year....my .heleniums, for example. Delphiniums very early in fhe spring, lupins the same, echinaceas. Tender salvias are susceptible during June down here. I hand pick in the early stages until now they have grown enough to ward off any odd attack. So far, I have several hostas in the ground and in pots not attacked by the critters.
Dahlias were vulnerable but now they should be fine
