    Morning clickers, at last we have some sun shine :good: First blight alert yesterday so potatoes were sprayed .Runner bean leaves are a pale green, they took so long to germinate and with all the rain I think they need a Nitrogen boost. Will side dress with Nitro Chaulk, its quick acting

    Morning clickers. The sun is shining and it is coffee and cakes at the village hall and a catch up with friends. Charnwood planners are debating the chicken farm application again today :-( I’m sure they will get it as, no doubt, the palms of the council will have been greased! More gardening to do later I think. Hope everyone has sunshine today,…[Read more]

    • Morning Cilla, we have chicken farms beside us, but thankfully they are free range and all have access to fields outside. Know what you mean about palms being greased, I don’t know why they bother paying planners when the councils just turn things upside down! Ooooh yes, forgot Jane was off early this morning. 👋 Have a lovely time Jane, :cool:…[Read more]

    Evening all. Did the ironing and then repotted some tomatoes in the greenhouse. After lunch I went in the garden and only came in at 5 so cream crackered now. OH has gone to his daughters so pizza and a glass of wine for me :-)

    • Hi Cilla … I have just come in too … cream-crackered! :lol: Have done a bit more sorting … potting-on … sweeping and stuff-stuff. It’s all amazingly vibrant out there, even in the gentle rain … you know, the lazy sort that goes through you instead of around you! HAd enough now though and am ready for that ‘Indian’ ready meal we purchased with this…[Read more]

  • Sorry, not been posting, but this site does not like me. More often than not, the posting box does not appear or if it does nothing happens when I try to post.
    Hope everyone is fit and well. Wish we had some dry warm weather.

    Good grey morning clickers…lovely day here…for autumn :lol: Had a nice morning yesterday but then the rain returned and it isn’t going away until tomorrow. On a positive note, the weekend looks good :sun-clouds: Finn’s mock GCSEs finish tomorrow – he has had 2 exams everyday so far this week and there is only 1 left to endure tomorrow…[Read more]

  • Morning all, well the rain arrived about 6pm and continued until the early hours, no thunderstorms though, awesome to a blue sky &sunshine which is disappearing with cloud cover, no rain as yet. Off to Knit & Natter this morning,so in a quandary as to what to wear, full rain protection,ie boots,raincoat&umbrella or risk it with cropped trouser,…[Read more]

  • Morning clickers :-) We had decided to leave on Friday but now are thinking of going early tomorrow – probably just as Al @ronvalley is off to bed ;-) This means a mega busy day but it also means I don’t have to do Lidl tomorrow :lol: Look at this gorgeous micro moth that I found yesterday and doesn’t it have the best name ever! Have a great day…

    Do any of our star veggie growers know what ails my beetroots?
  • cilla posted an update 1 day, 9 hours ago

    Morning clickets :-) It looks like November outside but it isn’t raining. I shall do the ironing and get it out of the way. I need to pot on some more tomatoes but will they ever do anything let alone ripen? I need to sow more beetroot in modules as the ones in the ground have that leaf problem and aren’t doing much. OH and daughter are going to…[Read more]

    • Morning Cilla :-) We have a bright morning :walt: Hope it cheers up for you :fingers-crossed: I’m sure Agatha Christie still loves the Nottingham theatre and never really left it :lol: Beets in modules are germinating quickly here – so, yes, sow some today! I’ve got a couple of psb in modules too but they won’t go outside until the whites have…[Read more]

    Morning Clickers, more rain expected today before the promised dry & sun tomorrow, live old horse again ;-) The Sprouts, cabbage & cauli are still waiting to go out as I would have been soaked doing it yesterday. At least the strong winds have eased. :good: Off for a swim shortly, & then coffee with a pal. :good: Have a good day all. :-)

    • Morning Karen. Looks like I can do the ironing today, maybe a blog. Have a lovely swim ( in Dorset on friday there were 4 or 5 women who had swum round Studland Bay…..brrrrr :lol: ). Coffee with a pal sounds just the job for a wet day, have fun :-)

      • Morning petal, ironing :bad: I’m sure you could find something much nicer to do. ;-) Brave people swimming in Studland Bay, I bet that was cold, though Dad taught us to swim on the North coast of NI, and that was cold. :lol:

    • Morning Karen :-) you’re definitely a lady who does coffee with pals :lol: You’ll enjoy that :coffee: after your swim. I once swam in a pool/lake of some sort on Dartmoor and was bitten to death :bad: Have a good day :-)

    Despite rain and watering system the foliage on the potatoes is keeping the compost a bit too dry Watering potatoes is never easy how ever they are grown. An extension on the spout of the watering can does make it easier to get through the foliage

    O well, the rain did not come until 2 pm and just a drizzle and tonight we are still waiting for it to come. But got the golf played and WON by 8 points playing with 7 men. Only problem every time I win my handycap gets cut. I am down to 20 now.

    Evening clickers. We had a walk this morning. This afternoon I had a happy time digging lots of stuff out that had grown over the stepping stones near the seat. I resited them and cleaned them and now have some room for more plants so planted 6 rudbeckia Rustic Dwarf and a sedum I grew from a cutting. Some photos for…
