    With the wind from the North, I could have a sodding great bonfire, as the smoke blows across the fields. The bonfire was approx 15ft diameter and as tall as me. All gone now..

    I'm not much of a gardener, but SWMBO wins all the competitions so I have to try and not appear too ignorant. I have enormous respect for people who can visualise what a garden will look like once it has grown from seedling stage to full maturity. It's a gift.

    Just been in the garden watching a False Widow spider murdering a Bluebottle fly. It was quite fascinating.

    Plenty of biting spiders here. I see false widows comonly and woodlouse spiders. Both are venomous, but symptoms are usually not much.

    My flower beds were so bad, I weedkillered the whole lot and dug it over once everything started dying off.

    Which weedkiller do you use? I got some Resolva 'Xtra Tough' (oh really?) which seems to do absolutely nothing

    I find napalm and Agent 'Orange' to be quite effective.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Just Tesco's own brand glyphosate concentrate. Mixed it and used a big sprayer. You see little happening for a week or two, then it all starts dying.
