    Seasonal Thoughts

    We have drifts of wild violets now in the garden. They, and daffodils and primroses, are my harbingers of Spring. I think it’s because one of my first memories from school is making a basket of primroses and violets to take home to my Mum when I was about 7. I just loved the juxtaposition of the deep purple and delicate yellows. Oh, and I asked our postie why he wears shorts all year round. He says it’s because he hates wet trousers flapping round his legs!

    Bantams always like to roost high in my experience. Not sure they’d use anything you made or bought though. They are choosy creatures!

    Notifications, or lack thereof

    I’m with your Mum, Soapdragon. Obviously a kink in the pipe!

    Interesting that they’re free ranging in a park. I’d love to see that.

    Shame. Not just useful for culinary purposes, but for chicken welfare.

    There was someone who did Dispatching and Prep courses. I wonder if they are still on offer?

    We had someone here who used to ‘grow’ her own chickens. She lived near somewhere that produced day old chicks. Used to rear them and dispatch at 16 weeks. Can’t remember her name. Lived in Chelmsford and I bought a red eglu from her. I remember seeing these chickens grown for meat and thinking they didn’t have much of a life. Not because of how they were kept but because all they wanted to do was eat. They sat beside the food all day and grew at an horrendously fast rate.

    Very breezy, a bit of drizzle but could be worse. Expecting more wind tomorrow
  11. I’m with DM. Aubiose is the way to go. Apart from everything else, it composts beautifully

    Just a bit breezy in South Oxfordshire. Sunny but a bite in the wind.
