Jeff is feeling this at the moment. He’s decided that the spot on the floor beside the open back door is where he wants to pee. You can imagine how well that is going down with his beloved Mummy. Argh!!!!!
Saw this on Pinterest. Using eggshells as a pest killer in the garden. Why throw them out?
These reasons are why I decided to grow comfrey. I first saw comfrey being grown under fruit trees in Angelo’s garden and I loved the idea. The comfrey drills down deep to bring nutrients up to its leaves, then when they die down in winter the fruit tree it’s planted under gets the benefit. Currently I have a patch of comfrey under (and around) my lime tree and one in the ‘orchard’ that was accidentally brought over when we moved our ballerina apples. It’s pretty happy accident, because I’ve heavily mulched around the fruit vvtrees with cardboard, fertiliser and sugar cane mulch to kill the grass, so if the areas between slowly get covered by comfrey, (maybe some borage?) and nasturtiums then that’ll bring the bees and I’ll be a happy gardener.
Super busy day today. Widget and I went to Costco and she signed up. As she said, her Costco cherry has now been popped. Back tomorrow.
