It’s painful but we really must talk about it…those unwanted visitors that keep popping up in your yard. I’m not talking about the in-laws; I’m talking about those gosh-darned, cotton-pickin’, sons-of-a gun weeds. Where did they come from, why do they stay, and why the heck are they growing…

I learned yesterday that when you see a bee on the ground that isn’t moving, it’s not necessarily dead, it’s probably just dead tired from carrying lots of pollen and needs re-energising. So if you mix a tiny bit of water with some sugar and let it drink it will give it the boost it needs to continue on its way. Bizarrely, this exact thing happened today! I found a knackered bee, mixed up some sugar water, gave it a drink and watched it guzzle and guzzle then suddenly come back to life. It was amazing! Thank you patrick, it was an excellent tip that i’ll never forget and will continue to pass on to others!

My thoughts are to plant the egg shell with the tomato, cracking the bottom and pulling the shell up the stem a bit to irritate the slugs. I regularly distribute crunched egg shells under the tomato plants to repel slugs, they hate the abrasive little daggers.

I did not know this! Good information!

You are also preventing blossom end rot (calcium deficiency)!
