    I have just been sorting out my veg plot, courgettes, carrots, lettuce, the PSB,some runners, three tomoatoe feet and an cayenne chilli plant are all in. I built a small raised bed for strawberries a few years ago and baring a disaster will get a cracking crop this year, lots of flowers and the fruit showing already.

    After 3 years of bugger all on the olive trees this year they are covered in blossom. Barring any freak weather we should have loads of oil next year.

    At the rear of the property is a sun lounge which is also destined to be flat packed sooner rather than later, several plants are being homed in this, along with some furniture for the time being. I have got to clear some part of a devestated garden before too long, to at least make it easy or easier on the eye, the tomato plant arrival just increases the pressure on me to do it, earlier than I wanted.

    Well this needs a bump,

    Not my garden but one of many that I get paid to look after. This was taken in the summer just as I had cut it.

    To take our minds off the game, what are some of people's favourite patterns they've seen made with the grass on football pitches?

    That is nice. I liked the circular pattern of Mexico 86

    Do you know Clough had them cut it and roll it width ways to make the pitch look wider.

    Looks like you've missed a bit there.

    I can't say I'm a fan of fancy stripage just good old fashioned up and down will for me. Like a blank canvas for our players to perform their art. Ahem!

    Thinking of putting together a wood planter on a patch of concrete in our garden. Maybe for veg, maybe for flowers, not sure yet.

    Anyone ever done it? Easy to do? I'm not the handiest, but surely a box isn't too difficult?

    Our back lawn has 3 humps in it which are ant hills.
    How best to remove?
    My mate over the road says make a hole and pour petrol in, then throw a lighted match and that will suffice.
    Are there any less pyrotechnical ways of getting rid?

    I tried boiling water last year and that didn't work.

    Piece of piss, Just use decking and line it with plastic and fill , I wouldn't put a bottom on it as you can just line it with plastic onto the concrete, You can always put a couple of holes in the bottom for drainage.
    Something like this

    I built a sub frame and attached it to that, But If I were you I would put batons in each corner and screw into that .

    I recommend a flamethrower.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“
