Re: Just disappeared up my own exhaust!!!

Don't be so hard on yourself. Next year sow less seeds so you have less to manage. This year I am only growing tomatoes and French beans. Unless you are growing food to live off there is no need to worry. :wink:

Holes in rhubarb leaves

My rhubarb leaves are covered in holes. Every single leaf has been got at. :shock: Any idea what could be doing this? I have checked the leaves and surrounding earth but can't see any pests. Any help and advice would be appreciated.

Having a bad day

Just wanted somewhere to let off steam. My husband has just phoned me to say that someone has stolen his bag with his computer, PDA and diary. He has months of crucial work stored on his computer. I feel so angry and so sad that this his happened to him. Its not the fact that the items are valuable ...

Scones

Andy, try not to roll out the dough to thinly. Better to have six plumptious scones rather than 10 flat! :lol: I tend to use a fluted edge cutter which seems to give the appearance of height when baked and I use self raising flour so there you go! :wink:

Mojo Sauce

Thought forum members would like to try this recipe that I found whilst trawling the internet. I made it on Monday and thought it was very moreish. This sauce (which is more like a salad dressing) is delicious served over new potatoes or a firm fish such as a tuna steak. It is tangy and has quite a ...

Strawberries - aftercare

Last year I bought a load of Strawberry plants. I took the flowers off of them as advised by the 'experts' so I would have a bumper fruit crop the following year. I overwintered them in an unheated greenhouse and they all died! :cry: With hindsight I suppose I should have watered them throughout the...

Wake me up when it's spring

I'm off to bed now grumpy old woman that I am. Today and all week in fact has been like the midst of winter. It has been cold, dark, wet, windy and miserable. I am not worried about my runner beans being eaten by slugs and snails anymore as there aren't any runner beans left. :( I've been trying to ...

Not sure what number we are up to but here's another one to add to the collection. In the gardening section of the Daily Telegraph today Claudine Beaumont advises that slugs hate lavender, so to use it as a useful and attractive barricade. I don't really want to plant lavender around my runner beans...

The Slugs are Winning

Thank you for your suggestions Hedgewizard. I am going to put in a small wildlife pond to encourage frogs and toads. I have got two chickens but they would rather eat the plants than the slugs and snails. One good thing about my tatty old garden is that I've noticed loads of ladybirds so that can on...
