Remember a girlfriend once.....always saying goodbye, again and again and again. She would phone ro say goodbye, write to say goodbye and drop in to say goodbye. Always felt like singing Pete and Dud's goodbye song

Mike knows we like him here but he also knows he will stay. We all respect his difficulties at the moment and have empathy for him but nobody will beg anyone to stay.

Growers or Killers?

Posted: 29/06/2014 at 23:20
I help a friend with her garden.....it is huge. She won't kill anything.....an ant, slug, snail, etc. rabbits run amoc and when I try to catch one she screams I'm "scaring" it. I try to make an attractive garden for her buf it is frustratingly difficult.
However, I have to admit I find this refreshing......well, sometimes. It's naive and impractical though

We have to control pests however we can or we might as well give up growing the things we won't to. ,Berghill mentioned losing his heleniums and shastas...they are delicious, apparently, for any mollusc.......but for me that would be disastrous (garden wise anyway). Mine are tall, soon to be covered in flowers and slug free. I use pellets and, primarily, hand pick. More importantly, I want to eat my lettuce...ME....not the slugs.

We cant have it both ways......a full garden with uncomtrolled pests. So, I'm a grower and a killer
