i meant to say too, if you compost with sugar cane mulch or straw it will stop the weeds. do it before you plant your seedlings then just pull it back from where you want to plant.

the only advice i can give is the little branches that appear in between the leaves on the main stem chop off. you want one vertical not horizontals... that might help the feeling of you being crowded in the greenhouse too. as for production, at this stage starve them (of fertiliser) then when they start to flower and fruit give them lots of compost and even a liquid fertiliser like fish emulsion or seasol. what variety have you got? i think the fruiting capabilities depends a lot on the variety. fresh broad beans steamed are wonderful!! they're even nice raw but i love broad beans :)

Isaac has just started sitting in the front seat of the car. I've always loved going for drives and now I feel like I have company :) every afternoon when I pick him up from school we tell each other about our days, and discuss anything that has arisen. Often we'll sit outside our house still talking, just sitting in the car, enjoying each other's company. As for the print... Town Houses is my favourite in your shop at the moment. Adore the little fox too!

the chutney recipe looks interesting! i've just purchased my first citrus tree, a dwarf blood orange. hopefully, in years to come, i'll have a glut too :)

It's funny, I've seen raspberry like canes (that are very hard to whipper snip) and the flowers but never fruit in my garden. I'll have to keep a closer eye on them!!

Times are tough but one day you'll turn around and see how far you've come :) They say the best revenge is happiness.... I'd have to agree :)))

How true!!! There are enough critics in the world without our innerselves joining in. Thanks for the reminder :)
