You know Wonky if I ever find a child in the vegetable patch they are going to feel so hard done too being so independent!

Wonky; I think she's running on a plan that if there's no upfront cost (I.e. husband can't make a financial excuse) she can force the issue as she's been toying with ideas of hens in the fruit cage type set up for a few years now.

It seems the dithering males is a genetic trait in the family (and she didn't even warn me??)

I seem to be misplacing my posts. I'm sure I'm writing more than is appearing!

It's now too hot to hack around the garden; though I have at least filled the green bin again. His lordship does not think much to my garden design ideas so I need to replan things. The vegetable beds in front of his shed have to relocate; he needs to spread out land rover axles on the current lawn and use the area as a work space.

It also looks like I won't be having hens any time soon as his mother has made plans to have my chicken equipment etc. I was brought them 3 years ago as my birthday gift with his lordship saying he'd make me the run. She says she'll buy me a new one when the time comes. I don't think the time will come.

Dove; no going silly when you get the okay! Remember things will be weaker.

Lawn in a bad way! Help!

For supply only artificial grass price ranges from £4 per square metre right through to £35 per square metre.

Of course the better quality you want the more you pay.

What plant other than Ivy to cover up unsightly lower-middle class concrete bird bath with vulgar inscription on it?

I don't have any toy alligators but I'm sure I remember seeing some large dinosaurs in pound stretcher

(for all you other upper middle class chums who work for a charity and thus receive next to nothing by the way of wages but isn't it so good for your soul ... pound stretcher do branded biscuits at heavy reduced costs. Its a little intimidating the first time you go in there and keep your hand sanitizer close by but its ideal for not loosing face at the office meeting and still having the budget for pims).

I bet if I get the craft glitter spray out I could create quite the focal point for when the church ladies come to visit to discuss the harvest festival celebrations.

Leasing plots of land for gardening

Cheers Dove. I'm not against the idea of leasing; am against the idea of taking advantage.
