Re: Early Summer Bits and Bobs.

I've just read in the paper that we are actually having a summer - but it's stuck in the middle of the Atlantic.

Re: A view of my garden

Hi Westi - I was lucky and found it in one of our charity shops in Wimborne a few years ago. I use it mostly when I go to plant sales. It gives me a little buffer space when there's an extremely desirable plant on the stall and there's about half a dozen other keen gardeners trying to buy it. I'm no...

adding a video

How do I add a video (of my plants) to my post, please? Tried the usual way of adding pics but the site won't accept a video. It plays on Facebook and Messenger but not here.

Re: Feeding the birds versus growing your crops

I've had to net the veg in the raised bed to protect it from the pigeons. But I still keep a bird table and a couple of hanging feeders for the smaller birds.

Just missed.....

.....bumping into Charlie Dimmock at our local InExcess yesterday morning. She was buying plants (not surprising). 10 minuites earlier and I could have seen what she'd chosen. I wonder if she's filming locally?

Re: pain in the thumb

Thank you all for your excellent advice. Much appreciated. I will go to the pharmacy tomorrow and see what they suggest. I don't want to give up my crochet so I'm very anxious to get sorted out.

pain in the thumb

I've been getting a bad pain in my right thumb - making it difficulty to hold the trowels and dibbers etc. and was thinking I need a thumb splint or something. (it's probably thumb arthritis caused by decades of knitting and crochet and digging little holes in the garden with the trowel). Anyone her...
