Gg, is it not the best lemon drizzle you have ever tasted?

Hi all, back from my travels, where I can see all your posts. I can only respond when I get home to my mac.

Plant sale was very successful, although Treasurer is still totting up the pennies. We had a much larger contribution of plants from members and villagers than for several years: the sun shone ( a bit, at least it was dry). Not too many gazebos blew away.

We had  longer opening hours than in previous years, and lunches on offer. This led to a steady flow of visitors over 4 hours. Everyone was tired but happy. And we have some plants left over which will be sold for the Red Cross at an upcoming village garden party. ( It's called the "never again party" and happens every year without fail!)

Amazingly it looks as if Hampshire will be playing cricket today so that's where I will be soon.

 I missed GW... looks as if it covered some of my favourites. Typical, when I do watch the items are often of little interest.

Thanks everyone for your wishes... will report back after the event.

Hey GG it looks as if our prayers may be answered. Tomorrow looks as if it might be dry after a damp start. We open at 11 o'clock for the public so here's hoping. Loads of plants for sale, propagated by amateurs and professionals alike. See you there. And anyone else too, of course.

Removing Horsetail

Posted: 25/04/2014 at 20:16

Having read this thread and having a "small" horsetail problem I would make 2 comments for further consideration.

1. Just how useful is weed suppressing material. I tried it a few years ago and covered it with an attractive mulch and it instantly became the perfect place for passing weed seeds to fall and germinate.

2. "Old wives tale"... pick your marestail/horsetail on a Sunday. For a small infestation this will probably work as it removes it from sight and gradually weakens it. Thanks Grandma.

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.
