philippa, I so agree that a compost bin is more interesting than TV! Especially soap operas In a compost bin, you have LIFE, DEATH, DECOMPOSITION; ok you may have that stuff on East Enders, but East Enders does not produce Black Gold - wonderful growing medium for your plants

My drill (bought as a Christmas present by my rather DIY innocent brother 42 years ago who said to the sales assistant in Selfridges 'My sister wants a drill with a vibrator' - I had asked for a drill with a hammer action) still has it's original chuck key because I keep it attached to the lead with a piece of string which has only had to be replaced once in 42 years. I have bought other drills to put my old one out to grass, the first one the chuck flew off so I returned it to the shop, the second one is so low powered I just use it permanently for countersinking. It is not allowed to do anything else until it grows up!

A little treat.

How Would You Over-Winter These?

One of my neighbours has a gardener who digs them up before the frosts (they are in a large trough outside ) and stores the roots in an outhouse, wrapped in straw or similar.

Can you do a photo from an upstairs window, so we get the whole thing?

It is going to be a very interesting and ultimately rewarding project and this really is a good time of year to make a start. You won't be stuck indoors at the weekends this winter!

Well, I never knew that!

I suppose if your job is to peer through microscopes at 'things' you start to realise that there are applications in the wider world for the processes you have seen.

Elliot, I don't understand the measurements; it is so tiny that a person could not stand up in it.

Scrunch up the sheets of newspaper and they will take air into the centre of the compost mix where it is needed.

Putting the worms from the compost bin into the borders is a bit of a waste; they do so much good work in the bin.

If you have a lot of grass cuttings, I believe they can speed up the process of making leaf mold.

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?

Why does it say I've reviewed all these plants?
