    Going to have a go at removing some green algae/mold (not sure of the correct term) from my wooden fence over the bank holiday weekend. Anyone have any better suggestions than a water/bleach solution?

    Yeah, original plan was to borrow my Dadís. But social isolation and non-essential travel has ruled that option out. Itís not a massive fence, only three panels look to be afflicted, so not keen on buying one specially.

    Sod it call round , He can stay in the house while you drop off essential shopping, Seriously a pressure washer will be better and safer for the planet.

    110 mile round trip...doesn’t seem the responsible thing to do.
    Might wait until things blow over then.

    I bought a Karcher pressure washer just before the lockdown, took the moss/mould of me fence in a nano second

    Because there’s fuck all else to do & because I’ve got a new pressure washer I’ve now got the cleanest patio in Nottinghamshire

    Managed to get these off me Auntie who isn't well enough to crack on with them.

    I'd love to have a crack at doing veg in them, but what would work best with these sizes? I posted about building a planter recently but maybe it'd be better off starting small this year as I'm still learning. Or maybe they're useless for veg and I should crack on with flowers?

    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?
    Ive had problems with them. They don't like vinegar. I can get 5ltrs for Ä4,50 though, it takes quite a bit.

    Any veg really apart from potatoes, Cabbages etc as these take up alot of room.
    I would make one salad veg , Letuce ,Spring onions etc , The other Whatever you what, Just plant the stuff you like and will eat.
    I have some beetroot and leeks in my raised beds aswell as lettuce and spring onions .

    Sounds like the most sympathetic Cluedo mŁder ever?

    ĄI 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 socialismď

    I'd have thought that chillis would need a greenhouse or at least a sunny window sill to ripen?
    I don't think that asparagus shoot for the first year either pal.
