My special resilient blend of weed/grass is keeping the garden mainly green.

Yep.

This is more one for the "annoyance" thread but I cannot stand all these strawberry floaters who get their hose or sprinklers out for hours on end because we've had a little bit of sun. :fp:

Your grass is not going to die because it's got a bit dry and hot FFS! You could deprive grass of sun and water for months and it would spring back the second you gave it a drop of both.

Especially annoying seeing people doing this all the time round our way when we've had messages about conserving water. :x

Hell there's grasslands where the grass literally burns to ash and after a month or so it all regrows (see Planet Earth (BBC) for this example)

Our lawns are dead and it's great, because it means I don't have to mow them :toot:

I throughly regret buying a house with a front and back garden. I need to hire a peasant gardener.

Pave it over. What are you using to mow the lawn? I use a petrol mower and I can mow my front lawn (which is pretty huge) in less than an hour.

The humidity and stuffiness today is diabolical. There isn’t even much sun, it’s just muggy and horrible everywhere.

I took the butter out and it’s soft within literally 5 seconds. Slice cheese and it’s immediately sticking to the knife.

No idea how people put up with it in other countries.

And as for chocolate, you may as well bin everything.

My lawn is artificial and therefore doesn't require mowing. 8-)

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

On the plus side, I can get the ice cream out of the freezer and it thaws quickly to allow access.

With the bitumen in the roads melting in the heat, how has your fake garden not turned into a green puddle?

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)

I was thinking this, also don't you have to hoover artificial grass or something? Seems like a lot of work for something that's not even the real thing!
