Rats and horse manure

I've never seen rats in the manure pile. Compost heap and anywhere there is food yes but never on the manure pile.

Morning Pat!

Oooh English asparagus; if I hadn't been given a big chore list by his lordship to do today I'd be in the truck driving over to get some. It's one of those vegetables I'll eat until I explode. It's on my definately list for the vegetable garden but that is still a long way off

Wonky; can I have a few days to recover from this weekend before we fast forward to the next? If it weren't for my jobs list I think I could happily spend all day wandering around in my pants eating junk food.

Growing Runner Beans.

Lyn. I believe they were using the ear phone pot as a plant pot and cotton wool as the growing medium.

Benijie; using a pot or loo roll middle is what I find easiest as the excess water can drain away (it is very easy to over water plants in our enthusiasm) and it's a lot less fuss than had you tried to transplant a seedling from cotton wool to soil (they are very delicate) when it out grew your case.

Try again in a few weeks, I find beans don't need as much fussing as you think so don't think they're like new born that need your undivided attention.
good luck!

Morning all. Survived scout camp this weekend; I have today off to rest and relaxation before the next camp... on Friday.
Must be mad.

Yesterday's sunny weather seems to have left us. It was wonderful to be drying clothes outside for a change!

Also; my (rather neglected) strawberries are already in fruit!

Oh David how scary!! What a good job you were so alert.

GUESS WHO HASN'T CHUNDERED FOR HOURS?? I'm celebrating with steak. It might not be the wisest meal for a delicate near diva like body but it's what the heart wants!

How are we enjoying the longer evenings? It's so nice having the door open to look into the garden and hear the birds and pond trickling. My daffodils are finally putting on a show and my tulips look like they'll be bursting soon too!
