Re: Early Summer Bits and Bobs.

Just had a close one, while cutting a hedge I cut through a Wasp nest...they were pretty angry but, I got away with only 2 stings...The nest is right next to a path, so will have to deal with it later when they have settled down a little.

Same problem here, Monika, I have put it down to the flucturating temperatures....

I do hope your Runners recover...Just had a Mole out of Old Codgers Runner beans, so he was very grateful...they do so much damage when the plants are trying to get established....
