Breastfeeding tip : Recognising a growth spurt

* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)
* Baby is breastfeeding often or almost nonstop (feel like baby is always wanting to feed)
* A baby who was previously sleeping through the night is now waking to breast feed several times
* Baby will latch and unlatch, fussing in between

default How is your crop?

Post by Natasha on Tue Aug 10, 2010 7:38 pm

Just wondering how everyones growing attempts went/going?


I have failed, totally lost the battle with the slug, as much as the chooks ate as many as they could they have destroyed my garden!

So hows everyone else done?

not a good year here either

My tomatoes havent ripened yet, and the slugs have demolished my cauli!
carrots are growing slowly, about 1cm at the moment

I did ok on the strawberries, and the other berry plants i have are new this year, so i wasnt expecting them to fruit this year anyway.

My apple tree is blooming tho - plenty of apple crumbles

i did really well with my first batch of lettuce but the second lot has been attacked by catterpilars! ive had 2 lots of raddish but the third lot have gone to seed, ive had one lot of mini carrots but i dont think this second lot are doing well, i havent dug up the taties yet but im not sure how theyve done- not very hopeful but will let you know!
all of my herbs took off like wild fire i managed to dry some coriander but have just used the rest of them fresh and now most of them are flowering some got destroyed in the mad wind like my tomatos- some of the branches broke off theres a bit left and theyre starting to ripen now
ive found the best thing to keep away slugs is the gravelly stuff cant remember the name but its very chalky and they cant cross it
will put the name up later we have a real slug problem but i managed to keep them at bay with this stuff

found a couple of links to the stuff i buy, have you got a 'home bargains', 'poundstretcher', 'b&m', 'poundland' or wilkinsons nearby? i buy mine from those shops and theyre usually either 1 or 1.99 rather than the prices on these sites
