Swimming slow-worm

Posted: 23/07/2013 at 14:09
our ex slow worms used to live in a darkish damp corner next to the hedge and under the darlec composter they often would be seen going through the lawn which we used to leave a little longer than normal,often when they spotted us they would do a pretend dead act, it was all very interesting and some of them were a stunning golden colour some silver greenish also bronzy were planning a similar patch in our new garden when we move ,be nice to have them around again, im told they love compost heaps with a piece of corrugated sheet to hide under on hot days,excellent for slug control and a protected species im told, pity next doors Cat cant read,

Hi Steve,love the idea of jams pickles ,all of it but earlier this site got some good advise about garlic in oil as i wanted to do it also,sorry i cant remember who it was but apparently it can be very dangerous,its not the same as the garlic and oil we buy, one i did do went very wrong and was chucked,have a bit of a check for safety mate, but for the rest of it im getting all the info i can and still looking for a good jam pan,decided not to buy one of the new electric ones.and got all mi recipes ready to go.
Good luck Alan
