    I eliminated quite a few slugs and snails that were hiding in pots yesterday……I hope they like being at the noisy neighbour’s house :lol: I can’t believe there is so much slug and snail damage when it is so dry :-(

    Wowser, how wonderful. Despite all my tomato plants they only produce a few pathetic looking trusses however well I look after them.

    If you want a giggle, Karen, read the critic’s appraisal of last night’s Poldark on The Guardian website……obviously a lover of himself and a delightful read :lol:

    Good morning Bean and thank you on Robert’s behalf. One load of washing was bed linen and be proud of me because I actually hung up in the wardrobe two garments which I didn’t iron :lol: :lol: :lol:

    • Wow!

      But will you succumb to the ironing urge, before you wear them again? My wardrobes are so stuffed, that I often have to do that. Think this means that I should give some stuff to a charity shop.

    Morning Karen. It could be anything. I wormed him on saturday after his bird and baby rat meals but he has never reacted to wormer before……but you know what an enigma cats are ;-)

    Hopefully not the vets but I shall keep my eye on him.

    Morning Jane. The slugs adore nicandra……if they are in a pot spray the rim with WD40, if they are in the ground not much we can do. I have some green tomatoes too :good:

    • Hi Cilla :-) I’ll spray one pot, the other one has copper tape around. The slugs got my newly planted out rocket last night too – grrr!

    Good morning clickers. Another restless night and early wake. We went off for a short walk yesterday morning by the river and it was so lovely that we ended up walking 6.25 miles……I felt really fit too, nothing ached, unusually. After lunch I sorted some pots out and filled two bags with made compost. I don’t want to put them on the borders…[Read more]

    • Morning Cilla :-) sorry to hear Robert’s not too good – does this mean a trip to the vet? Brilliant doing 6.25 miles :good: Always a shame to have to do h/w – I must put some washing in while we still have cheap leccie ;-)

    • Morning Cilla, sorry about your bad sleeping again honey. :-( And that is a bit worrying about Robert, does he get fur balls? I know Moo, goes off her food from time to time and that’s often the cause. Sounds like you had a great day yesterday. :good: Have a good day. :-)

    • I am attuned to Alfie’s normal behaviour and habits – and like you are, I am concerned about any departure from normal – and I very much hope that Robert will soon be his usual self. Am amazed that 2 people can find three loads of washing at one go – I hardly ever do more than one at a time – bet you are rubbing your hands together in…[Read more]

    Good morning Ginny, lovely to have you back. I love the sound of your pond, is there an underground spring? It will be exciting to watch its progress. :-)

  • cilla posted a new activity comment 2 days, 21 hours ago

    Sounds horrendous Karen. I hope today is better. Just doing a click on yesterday’s activities. :-)

    It was a lovely programme Karen, just off to book my ticket ;-) :lol: What have you been up to today? ;-)

    • Evening Cilla, let me know when you are arriving then petal, I’ll pick you up from the airport and give you a guided tour. :-) :good: Glad you enjoyed it, you’d love Crom Estate on the Upper Lough too, it’s National Trust, so have a nosey. I’ve had a rivetingly boring day of washing ironing and general housework. :disappointed: It hissed down…[Read more]

    Morning Jane. No respect any more, little beggars! I sowed some more beetroot yesterday. I gave up planting garlic, it just wasn’t worth it. Have a lovely day.. :-)

    Good morning Jane. We had a bit of rain yesterday, just enough to refresh the garden. What are you upmto today? :-)

  • cilla posted a new activity comment 3 days, 20 hours ago

    Morning Karen, you can’t beat a bit of [email protected]@ shovelling :lol: …….watch the back :-)

    Morning all. Made the tea at 6. We walked at Bradgate yesterday morning and there was an interesting wildlife event with groups from bees, hedgehogs, bats, mammals etc. Also the kitchen gardens from Lady Jane Grey’s house were open for the first time, all done by volunteers. It was lovely apart from the head guy who, when I asked if it was all…[Read more]

    • Morning Cilla, you really did pack in loads yesterday, and good for you on giving that clown some serious grief, what a plonker! I got a lovely load of manure from my farmer neighbour the other day, so shifting that is my job for today. ;-)

    • Morning Cilla and Karen :-) How lovely 22 verbena bonariensis will look when they’re in flower! Sounds like you had a good day yesterday :good: We had a bit of rain last night – the garden was ready for it ;-) Have a good one today :-)

    Isn’t it depressing after all the hard work you put in……that’s gardening for you :-( On the plus side those spuds look good enough to eat….enjoy :-)
