most relieved to see Elvis drop on the mat. Enetered in a fit of something - brain storm, i suspect, after Brighton last year - and haven't run since. the running mojo's just complete left and is showing no signs of comming back - while the fat is.
so at least I don't have a guilty sense of taking a proper runner's place...
I've done OK with the greenhouse stuff, salad, toms & cuecumbers. Strawbs gave a reasonable picking too.
Carrots aren't great, but I'll do a load of soup & it won;t matter that they're all a daft shape or split.
Spud question though. Again. Dug up the first 2 plants & there's something really magical about the soil comming up with these globes of yumminess in there.. About half of them have little holes, a few mm in diameter that go into the spud. nothing seems to be in the bottom of them, they're just there. what might it be & how do I stop it for next year?
Regardless of what session he was describing, I think he meant it in awe, as he followed on with (and I'm paraphrasing here) "farah ran his last 400 m, having run 9600 m already, in 53" He was saying that he'd found performances like that inspiring, and that the way the team has performed so far these games was a factor in him getting a win today.
People ought to stop looking to rip him to shreds every time he opens his mouth. The number of times people here come back with "that wasn't what I meant" you should all know how difficult it is to be exact in phrasing on the spur of the moment.
If they're summer fruiting (and I'm going to guess they are if they're fruiting now) wait until after they've finished fruiting, then cut off at the ground any stem that had fruit on it this year. You should have stems growing now that don't have fruit - leave them, they're next year's crop.
You may want to tie them into a wire frame. You can also trim them in height as well, but I suspect that's mainly to stop them growing out the top of the cage, and make them easier to pick than because of any furiting reasons.
They can get out of control as they grow by runners under the ground. to keep them in an area, you just need to lift the stems growing too far out & cut the runner. (note, best done when the stems are small!)
