Mice in the compost bin

Posted: 27/03/2015 at 19:24

Compost is fine to use, but (I hope I won't shock you) I use mouse traps when mice are were I'd rather they weren't. They breed quickly and I don't want to use poison because of other birds and animals who may eat them.

When it's difficult is when you have a full size apple tree and you have to get up a ladder and you are afraid of heights!

Favourite biscuit?

Verdun could send the sun south too, please.

DD, something has been nipping tops off seedlings in my GH, starting with Cerinthe. Look away now squeamish ones. I put down mousetraps and the problem is now resolved.

Supermarket this morning.
