  1. Brambles, Brambles everywhere

    by , 25-08-2010 at 07:41 AM
    A day off work & no rain means another journey into the hell that is the garden.
    Armed with wellies, thick gloves & pruning shears i shall enter the land that time has forgot & hope i return. On days like this i remind myself of the plans we have drawn up & imagine the beautiful veg plot that awaits me. Until then i pacify myself with a nibble of the massive juicy blackberries that are in abundance. I have had to take to wearing purple nail varnish to disguise the staining ...

    Copied from another location on the Internet. September 2009

    Ok, here goes..........

    Sweetcorn ended up being a total disaster, I only really got to eat around 5 or 6 good cobs, the chickens had the rest. I've no idea what went wrong but I can only think that I didn't give them enough water.

    Chard did very well..... just didn't really get on with the taste.

  4. Better late than never

    by , 16-07-2010 at 12:15 PM
    So after being a member of the Vine for a year now, I have only just realised that there is a blog facility, well better late than never I guess.

    Last night was a particularly blustery one and with the cold light of day came the unwelcome sight of 8 of my sweetcorn looking ever so slightly the worse for wear. That said, only one of them was very toppled but its' fall had been cushioned by the 2 plants immediately in front of it and 1 to the side, the latter of which, in turn, had ...

  5. Grand-daughter's apple tree

    by , 10-07-2010 at 10:22 AM
    Earlier this year my 4 yr old grand-daughter gave me a pip from her apple and asked me to grow her an apple tree!!!

    It germinated and when it was three sets of leaves tall I pinched out the top and put it out on the patio in a 3 inch pot.

    This morning i noticed it was 19 inches tall with lots of side leaves and looking rather "stringy".

    I've now transferred it to a 12 inch pot but need some advice on what to do now??

    Thanks in ...
