  1. Herefordshire here we come!

    Sorry about the firemen! Rest of it sounds so interesting
  2. Weird lumps on chickens back

    Could be sebaceous cysts though odd they are symmetrical. The vet can cut cysts out.

    Love county shows enjoys those Aussie shearers
  4. So how is the season so far?

    Doesn't look very appetizing but if there's a market, perhaps we should stop destroying it. I'm so wasteful dug up the dandelions as well. Mind you if anyone wants some my neighbour has a garden full. French beans are germinating but no signs of life from my 8 year old salad leaves.

    Oh the loft that will be full of carpet wallpaper, old toys .....have fun Hope your buyers behave, they may say thoughtless things get your thick skin on. One of ours pulled some paper off which really upset me. I know it was moving day but still

    There always seems to be a new weed to battle. I spent all last year fighting brambles in my son's garden. Now they've gone (almost) there's loads of that sticky bright green weed. I've got quite a bit in my garden too. Do you need to get the roots up or will it die if you tug the foliage and some roots out? Hope roses grow as easily

    Thanks I'm going to read up about them
  9. So how is the season so far?

    I'm on heavy clay and years of chicken manure and compost has made loads of difference. I dig it in Autumn or Spring. I've got some bags of fabulous compost I've not put on the beds made from kitchen waste, grass, run and cube stuff. Can I use it as potting compost or does it need mixing with soil? First time growing veg for years. We've put in dwarf beans, carrots, chillis and peppers, sugar snap peas and some 8 year old salad leaf seeds. No signs of the lettuce yet but not given up hope. Tomatoes are growing great guns. Doing everything in pots and troughs and a little plastic greenhouse as I wont give up flower beds I've just rescued from the chickens. Love to see your roses SoapD when they flower. I've never tried them, thought they were hard work but if you've been successful on clay perhaps I will. Talking about slugs, I have massive ones that like chicken pellets. They get flung over the fence into next doors wilderness in the dark of night. Wonder if neighbour watches me.
  10. Postman called today with a parcel. It's a Piggy pin cushion. I love Piggy. Thank you my Omlet May Swappee, he's cute How can I stick pins in his little pink rump?
  11. Arbour

    Ooh that's a good idea thanks
  12. How clever the flowers are. All lovely makes, well done people
  13. Arbour

    Persuaded old man to agree to a seated arbour. Garden is on a nice slope so that makes it more interesting. I've been looking at Cuprinol garden shades. The fence and run are dark green but I'd like to make it a feature. Any recommendations for a colour?
