According to my super duper radio weather station we had 3.1 mm of rain but it looks wetter than that. The station reckons the temperature is ------  (it's a techno fail gadget)

Grow Your Own / Re: Poor crop of Runner beans
« Last post by JayG on Today at 09:42 »
Some varieties seem more prone to dropping rather than setting their flowers than others - spraying the flowers with water is said to help with setting, although not everyone agrees with that...

Things will almost certainly improve when (if) it cools down a bit.

Grow Your Own / Re: carrot shortage?
« Last post by Sleepingpopman on Today at 09:41 »
Hi. I set 3 lots of seeds, all from the same packet, in identical soil & area but
only 1 setting have grown but even Monty Don showed the other week that all
but 7 of his carrots from a quite big seed bed had failed so I was a bit happier
in a way that it's not just me.

Grow Your Own / Poor crop of Runner beans
« Last post by Sleepingpopman on Today at 09:32 »
Hi Folks  ;)
My runner beans this year have grown brill & are all in or have been in flower but
hardly any beans showing  :(. They've been well watered & feed & there's plenty of
bees about to do there part but up to now only 3 beans  :mad:, I know there plenty
of growing time left but there doesn't appear to be any sign of a new bean growing
where the flower has dropped from, just little stalks.
Anybody else suffering with this or any thoughts why it's happening  :(.

Keith  ;)

Petty vandalism is pretty bad, but to kill your livestock in disgusting. Sorry for the loss of your chickens.

The door is open from the moment I get up until it starts to get dark - wonderful. The cat agrees with this, as well!

Ah yes ... I remember when we had cats.  The arguments about closing the back door .. for the night, to stop the moths coming in (have you notice how this isn't really a problem this year?  :unsure:), in the autumn when not as warm.  We agreed on shutting it to keep the rain out!  :lol:

Warm again but, like John, we're expecting rain later on. Really hope so as I'd like to make one more sowing of peas and get some green manure going too.

Putting some chicken drumsticks in the slow cooker with lots of veg.  It can cook dinner quietly all day and I don't have to get hot and bothered later!
