Excess Nitrogen in veg plot soil

Runner beans, all beans, peas etc fix nitrogen out of the air into their roots. So they will make things worse.

Try not to eat biscuits, altho" I have some ginger nuts for when I am out on the garden. Sorry to have to admit I don't eat much cake either. Not a good idea when you are the only one around to finish it off. Shop sells the best Lemon Drizzle ever, so do get the ocasional treat when I have visitors, but I always let them take away the leftovers. Does this admission exclude me from the cake lovers club? 

Strange PM from unknown person.

Picking up again on the discussion about taking down your Christmas tree, a lady has just very confidently told me they should be down by midnight today. I, for one will be leaving mine 'till tomorrow.Always liked bending the rules

Whether the 5th or 6th , it's always sad to see the tree etc come down. However just think how quickly you would go bonkers if it lasted all year round! If there is confusion as to which is the correct date, then it's up to you to decide which is best for you.


I hope I was missed?

Hello Bill, how are you managing in this awful weather. And when it finishes with you it rattles across the Atlantic, warms up and dumps loads of rain on us, together with very high winds and tidal surges! We are owed a very good summer, or are we paying for the last one?

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.
