HELLO FORKERS March 2016 edition

Morning all. Was -5° but it's sunny and the sky is blue. Ground is like a bog though. Must get some more pruning done while I've the chance.

Talking of weight, well done Hosta, I found an old exercise book yesterday from about 10 years ago. I was on a diet and had written down my weight as it went down. Starting weight was over a stone lighter than I am now

Have been sorting photos to get some enlargements developed of the grandchildren to frame. Taken ages.

Gardening was out, heavy showers, cold.

Made a loaf of bread and lasagne is in the oven.

Washing out, Chrissy? Good heavens! It never dries at all outside here in winter.

New wall planters need advice on planting them up :)

Good morning Marion. Only 1° here too. I wonder if it will warm up this afternoon so I can get on with the pruning.

Morning all.

I have no plans for this grey and gloomy looking day.

How to stop puppy from eating everything

Posted: 07/03/2016 at 09:27

Good advice from Clarington. I have a Border Collie, he is old now. I have had BCs for the last 40 or so years. The first word to teach them is "NO". I never left them unattended in the garden when they were little.

There was an area for the loo and on the formal lawn going to the loo was forbidden. In this house I am lucky to be surrounded by woods that belong to me (I live in France), but with a smaller garden the loo area must be cleaned up when the puppy isn't looking. You don't want him to think he was wrong after all or that you are his servant!

He will chew much less as he grows up. My currant dog stopped chewing things after about 6 months, but he's not really a chewer.
