Dove, it was pretty dark in the corner of the potato bag, but I don't think they were naked at all when I first saw them.

Yes bekkie, I am a lady. I live in the Fens and though to a visitor it may look flat and featureless, the more I get to know it, the more interest it has. There are many waterways for drainage, so the other day there was an entire family of swans crossing the road, there were ducks flying over the fields this morning and coots(?) in the water. Horses in the fields, and Jack Russells galore

I think I agree with you there; it is too soon; though I might not have noticed they had hatched for a few days....

Gardeners hands! Best cream?

bekkie, I do it the other way round; wear gloves for household cleaning, where my hands may be in contact with scary chemicals and don't often wear gloves in the garden

can i put these in my compost bin?

The fir tree will take a very long time to compost. I have mentioned elsewhere I think on this forum about putting some Yew branches in a large compost heap and 17/18 years later they still had not composted, just turned brown. I would take the fir cuttings to the local re-cycling centre and chop up the rest for compost. Perhaps add some scrunched up sheets of newspaper to help achieve 50% browns and 50% greens.

Sadly, Flossie Flo is too short to see a little brown face appearing above the wheat. Next time I will lift her up to see.
