Ooh, what a fabulous idea New Shoot. We'll try that tonight...maybe a torch studded with grapes (which they've just discovered) 😃

Auntiemogs, that sounds like a great idea. Many thanks.
Grow Your Own / Re: Skinny rhubarb

Would sustained dry weather make my Rhubarb look like it has collapsed? It was fine last week but looks very poorly now.
I think the best way to tell is to give it a good water.  Mine's looking very 'wilty' and sorry for itself, so hopefully a good drink this evening will sort it out.  :)

My Mum had a lot of bindweed last year, but has a cat (Mr Thoms) and was concerned about using weedkiller.  I stuffed as much of the plant as I could into sandwich bag, dabbed with weed killer and tied it off with an elastic band.  It's a bit of a faff, but I have to say that it worked very well as it gave it time to be taken down to the main roots....  :)
I've just put out a dozen CC plants on an allotment (total 110 plots) where no one else grows tomatoes outside, due to blight.

I'll report back on how well or ill they did!

You're right, Growster.  :D  Tried the careful application of Resolva via a paper towel yesterday, so will see what happens. Was concerned that not enough of the nasty stuff was getting onto the bindweed leaves, but we'll see. May have to resort to some very gentle spraying if that hasn't worked.

Put a torch into the coop as it is gong dark.  The newbies just are not seeing it as home yet, but that should encourage then in  :)
Chatting on the Plot / Re: Weird Weather for first half of May

That's the truth Christine, I'm now in the process of emptying water butts again, the rain that we had a week ago was welcome, but nowhere near enough, possible rain next Sunday night/Monday morning, (if it arrives).
