I Use a Dymo. Have had it for several years and use it in the kitchen as well. It has really earned its keep, even though it seemed expensive to buy.

The Buff-tip died after laying eggs. I didn't kill it, honest.

End of July is the latest you should harvest rhubarb to give it time to build up for next year.

Can anyone identify these roots / bulbs?

Love them to bits as they flower in the Autumn. Perfectly hardy in my experience. Come in very good colours from palest to bold pink.

Moth larvae on chilli plant?

Dogs Mercury? Maybe not, but whatever it is it is a weed; a common weed, I have it in my garden. Certainly not Sambucus nigra, that's black. And nothing like JKW so rest easy.

It will come to me in time!
