Aloe Vera? Mine (alas given to a friend when I moved and hasn't been replaced yet) seemed to survive being forgotten, drowned, knocked off the windowsill by a neighbours inquisitive cat...

Two and a half compost (the big daleks) filled with near ready compost from the rotten wooden frames. Looks like we'll have some good stuff in a few months!

You could have good stuff, sooner if you add those worms you collected last weekend.  

I am sure there were plenty in the frames you emptied. I would be very surprised if there weren't. 

Had it not been such a long journey home I'd have brought a load of muck and worms back home with me! They'd have worked in a treat. There were some worms in the frames Edd, but not any where near as much as I was expecting (mind you the birds were straight in as soon as I moved away which wont have helped matters!!)

As Joe has said - it is against the law to disturb / destroy a birds nest that is active (i.e. being built or in use) with a potential fine of £5,000 or six months in prison.

Unfortunately the only thing for you to do now is to wait until the nesting season is over and start later in the year.

Look what i found
