General discsussion. Winter is finally over. The greenhouse has been repaired, potting shed got new staging. The only thing left to do is start sowing, which I started on Sunday 23rd March. Carrot and parsnips in buckets, Toms (Hildaire and Harzfeur [ from LIDL]), cabbage (Hispi), Sprouts, Cauli all year round and beetroot Boltardy. Spuds are chitting. Next weekend it's Broccoli, swede, and anything else I've forgot. Plus since I now have a generator and electric rotovator I'll be turning at least two beds over in readiness. I think it's a bit too early for the salad stuff yet. Does anyone agree/disagree??

Vegetable discsussion specific to Cucumber. I have more cucumbers than I know what to do with! Anyone know any cucumber recipes that don't involve slicing and eating raw or pickling? Ideally something that I could cook and then freeze.
Vegetable discsussion specific to Pumpkin. Every year I try growing pumpkins with the dream of growing the largest or heaviest but each year my attempts are thwarted in some way. This year I have managed to grow plants in pots but the main stalk has snapped! It's still connected to the plant and there is some growth still occurring - is there anything I can do? It would be nice to save them... somehow!!!!!

General discsussion. I am thinking of building a square, stacking wooden compost bin. I know that you shouldn't use treated wood as it contains all sorts of nasty chemicals but how do you stop the wood from rotting? I don't really want to spend a fortune on really high quality hard wood. Is there something you can do or do I just have to accept that eventually it will rot and I'll need to make a new one? Would be great full for any ideas.
General discsussion. The Spanish Slug - Arion vulgaris was first identified in East Anglia in 2012. The monster slugs can grow up to five inches long and has been nicknamed the "killer slug" for its cannibalistic tendencies and aggressive nature. It's feared that millions of slugs are set to emerge this spring, leading to the UK seeing a population explosion when their buried eggs hatch. Have you spotted the Arion vulgaris in your garden?
Vegetable discsussion specific to Onion. About to plant some tiny onion bulbs and my neighbour reckons they should be covered with just the tip poking out but I see other plots where they have been placed in an indent and aren't covered at all. What to do!!!!????
General discsussion. I'm trying to grow Tumbling Toms, and have just recently potted them. I have them inside at the moment, but I want to be able to have them outside especially when the weather is very sunny. They'll need proteted from the wind because whilst I live in a Sunny area of Scotland, there's a cold wind on occasion. I thought of getting polythene sheeting and making covers for my two pots. We have a wall which gets full sunshine for most of the day and being able to hang the pots outside would save space inside. Is there any other option, that wouldn't cost more than £10? Where there's a will there's a way etc...
