To be honest fresh horse muck is more likely to scold my Grandad said. The yard has it removed my a farmer weekly so it never gets well rotted! I have thought about collecting some and bringing home but was unsure how long it would take before I could use. Any ideas??

I keep hinting he should get in and do this but he is waiting for his tomato to ripen!!! At this rate we will have tom's coming out if our ears! We have 6 GD from aldi looking v strong and he wants to try his own. I don't even like Tom's, only when cooked!!

Builders buckets in the plastic greenhouse me thinks!! We had a terrible Tom crop last year! Was v disheartening,

Tilting tank- be v careful, if you pull any sediment from bottom of tank in then you will end up damaging the boiler! More costly in maintenance. Hence why they leave a reserve in the bottom.

We have eaten 500l in 2 months!!!! I'm thinking that us far far far to fast. How long does 500L last others at this time of year.

Wish I knew where to buy a drum from -cold!!!

It's because I took a week off work to ride, garden and do house hold jobs and DIY. Well 2 of the 3 have been done!!!

Back to work on tues and then the garden becomes my escape and switch off time!

Horrid thing is the oil ran out last night so we are blooming cold, except the conservatory will still be warm with the heater keeping them going!!!
