There are levels of moist that are no fun for anyone.

Am I going to be the first to admit this new weather front is playing havoc with my joints? I'm only 29 but am creaking and wincing like anything at the moment.

Thanks Liriodendron! Useful to know about the wormery and nitrogen being too much for seedlings. That saves a lot of heartache!

STILL  can't decide what to plant next to my strawberries which is making me start to think maybe it's the strawberries that are in the wrong place 

I've climbed into bed rather than putting the heating on. Now; how can I convince oh to fetch me  a mug of tea...

I'm not sure to be honest Fairy - compared to my four daleks the about of compost you get in the wormery is quite small (3/4 dalak) but it takes much less time to compost so you get a steady rate of it -(you just lift the bottom one out once all the worms have moved up) it does look really fine stuff, quite dark too. I think Edd is the wormery expert perhaps he knows the nutritional value? I was thinking of using it for seeds as it's so fine.

Well that autumn button has been well and truly pushed! Looks like even if I can decide what to plant in the bed next to my strawberries it'll have to wait. 

Lifted my wormery in preparation to move it to a frost free place - the bottom layer is looking very good and alive with baby worms! I can see the delight children get with worms now!

Definitely not going to do work today, definitely not going to do work today...

Lesley - we hold ghost hunts in the building,  I'm told its quite active or at the very least their imaginations enjoyed themselves!

Got my bargin bin strawberries planted into the ground so we don't get any chilly roots in pots as I was amazed to see what huge rootballs they'd grown after looking so dead and pathetic when I brought (rescued) them. It's at the far end of the garden from where the chickens will be (arriving in spring) so I'm hoping we can easily incorporate it into the eating area and chicken proof it - Clarington only shares so much!

I can't decide whether to plant some of my herbs (Sage, thyme, oregano, camomile when I can find it) in the adjoining plot or something else (garlic, onion... agh the choices!!)

I've had mice seemingly living on a diet of carrier bags and washing up tablets - they seem to be quite hardy! Perhaps if you've no droppings once it got into the container it decided it wasn't all that keen and moved on?

Does putting slate on your pots help keep the soil moist?
