Grow Your Own / Re: Foxes and sweetcorn
« Last post by Florablunder on Yesterday at 21:02 »
That's an interesting point about the chicken poo - I usually just use growmore, but I think I did put some chicken manure pellets in when I planted the sweetcorn this year. I haven't used BFB for years, for the same reason - it seemed to invite trouble from the foxes - didn't occur to me that chicken poo could also have the same problem. There is a family of foxes literally living on the next plot - I watched them playing one morning, and they are quite sweet - but what little devils too! I wonder if there is something I could spray on the plants to put them 'off the scent' so to speak??

The last 5 posts have made me deeply envious  :lol: 

We had pasta with prawns in a tomato sauce, followed by raspberries from the freezer set in jelly, fresh strawberries from the garden, ice-cream and a bit of squirty cream just because we could.  So I actually did alright, just like the sound of all yours better  :tongue2:

I shall be watching England v Croatia this afternoon out of a sense of patriotic duty (not expecting it to be either a relaxing or entertaining experience, although hope springs eternal...  ::))


Indeed and hope did spring  eternal!

 :mad:
Watched all the matches so far, except the Wales v Switzerland one.
Italy looking good so far, but that may have been helped a bit with with their opposition.
Phew, that was a shocker yesterday, but all seems ok from the reports at the hospital bedside today.

Do not forget you can watch many of the matches in UHD HDR via BBC iPlayer.
Always have to find some justification being forced to pay the license fee :)

Will be ready at 2pm after finishing the Sunday lunch Roast Chicken and having the first picking of season broad beans and new potatoes (Charlotte and International Kidney).
Half time it will be first picking of Strawberries too...
Glad I added the cream on my last online delivery.

Sounds like a good plan @

Grow Your Own / Re: Another 🐘 garlic question
« Last post by Hampshire Hog on Yesterday at 19:09 »
You can remove the spikes and cook with them. My suspicion is the garlic is suffering due to this years odd weather. I would make sure that they are well watered. I donít think you would normally need to wait till next year to harvest but it could be later this year due to late spring. HH
