Weeds growing through weed fabric and gravel

One last thing from me....glysophate kills everything so take care not to spray your favourite plant your Granny gave you!

Thinking of you GG and TT, all the very best...

KEF, I filled my peanut feeder yesterday and half has already been eaten. Jackdaws!

Getting ready for the flower show today. Am involved in the setting up and have put in a few entries for the first time. Fingers crosed... again. Off to garden to see what might be reasonably presentable.

Good morning all, off to Mottisfont to see roses today, always a treat at this time of year. Visited a garden of a friend of a friend last night, once an NGS garden but no more. Stiil as beautiful and the owner has created a most amazing wild flower garden by a drainage pond on some land "loaned" by the local farmer. Wild wilderness in the extreme, masses of wildlife and naturalness. 

Preparations for annual Village flower show start tonight.

Horsetail, one of the toughest weeds on the planet. Has been around since before the dinosaurs. You could trample on it to bruise it and then spray with Glysophate based weedkiller. Or you could pull it regularly to weaken it and perhaps eradicate it. But could be a long term job. Sorry... and good luck.

Have just picked an armful of sweet peas, with aroma filling the kitchen. Flower show at weekend and have put in for 10 categories. I have never done this before so am heading for humiliation.. but who cares. Watering absolutely essential now or I will lose loads. That's a job my wife loved doing.

I'm not getting any notifications either!

Andy... you can go to the top of the class today, and a gold star.

Verd, Cornwall played better on day 2, but poor effort on day one leaves them likely to lose today, unless they bowl Wilts out cheaply. Have lost some good players since winning the minor counties championship last year. 2 good young players batted beautifully yesterday. Lovely to watch. Dinner with good friends and home by 11pm.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
