Compost needs a balance of brown (shredded paper, cardboard) and green (vegetable matter). Leave until it has all rotted down and you can't tell what went into it and the garden and the little wiggy worms will love it.

Mould is unimportant, it all rots down in the end.

Random question but why....

They have a beat which they will usually remain in. There is probably a different bat on the other side of the house.

Love them, even when they find their way in and they fly round the room when I'm watching TV; or in bed; or having a meal.

Plant ID please

Lemon verbena? Lippia?

Handy bags are usually a metre square bag. I would have that delivered by the builders merchants, but I wouldn't put it in a car, it probably weighs a tonne.

GETTING TO KNOW MY ONIONS

If I were you I would have another go either this Autumn or next Spring with new sets. They do not need to be netted. Start them off in modules so that they have little green shoots when you plant them then the birds won't pull them up thinking they are good to eat. Mice can dig and don't usually touch onions anyway.

You can pickle the onions that are big enough. If you try to plant the little bulbs this Autumn or next Spring they will go straight to flower and will be useless.

A wheelbarrow or sack barrow or trolley is your friend.

Agreed, but they don't look like that do they?

I think you can be sure it is blight. Blossom end rot doesn't look like that at all.

It's a shame because you have a good crop there.

Pick tomatoes in good condition and put them with a banana to ripen. Bananas give off ethylene which will ripen them.
