Re: Does size matter ?? ...................

Last year I had tops on tatties around 4 feet tall, but there was next to nothing underneath them(lifted a bit early as the dreaded "b word" struck them), hopefully this year will be better.

Re: Sizzling Summer Bits and Bobs.

We had a bit of rain that damped the dust down, now a mix of cloud and sun, next to no wind, but with storm Chris forecast for next week, the garden will be ok I guess whilst we are away on holiday.

Re: I don't believvvee it!!!

Indicative of todays society, I used to have rasps and a tayberry on the border fence between me and my neighbour, went out one day to find her filling a bowl with my fruit(and not just the ones on her side of the fence), there's now a tall beech hedge between us.

Re: A view of my garden
