Garden menaces

It has been very quiet here recently, partly as we all had a horrible fluey bug and then partly because we all went on holiday, which was lovely. We had gorgeous weather and a relaxing and lovely time with our friends. However that is for another post.

This post is for my garden and the things attacking it, and for once it isn't cats. No I'll give you a clue
Those spots aren't caused by some mystery plant bug, and they aren't confined to one plant, they cover all plants, toys, compost bin, shed, raised beds etc on the left side of the garden. They are caused by this menace, fence sprayer If you are thinking about this, just don't do it!!!

And then to add insult to injury I've come back to find all my gooseberry bushes covered in mildew and completely stripped of leaves by sawfly. This gardening malarky doesn't always suit my style of bung it in the ground and hope for the best.

However summer is not too far away, the tulips, daffodils and blossom have all gone,
the seeds are growing and sprouting. The first salad leaves are almost ready, and before you know it we will have so many courgettes coming out we will be eating them every meal.
