What about cider vinegar OL? Isn't that meant to help with bites?

Not quite but I'm sure she said very early February. If I get my heated greenhouse it'll be easier as your windowsill s do fill up quickly! 

Mesh for a garden lawn

What about just fixing chicken wire on top of the grass? It'll soon get covered by the grass especially if you mow on a high setting than normal (you'll be able to walk over it so certainly mow over it) so you wont see any of it but should be enough to put your little pest from wanting to dig the lawn up as it wont feel good on her paws and saves you having to fence the garden up.

I know around chicken coops they suggest putting chicken wire around the outside of the run to stop foxes so it must be effective for even a determined pest. You can get chicken wire from most DIY stores.

Mmmm chocolate truffles...

Good news KEF we've had a little more rain! One could even consider it mildly moist.

Managed to part sew a little more of my quilt,  good job he's away this weekend I've rather taken over the lounge but that'll teach him to go to a cider festival without me.

 

We're always good Fidget!

They're all in the greenhouse OL - with a few in the plastic greenhouse while I was meant to be tidying up the greenhouse (several weeks ago  )

KEF - we've had 2.3mm of rain in the last 24 hours. We've got our own mini microclimate here we rarely get any of the bad weather that ends up in Rother Valley before heading North to you. Unfortunately this means the garden isn't getting enough water!

I've discovered that by the back door is a real sun trap OL and seems to suit them well. I think I'm only doing so well as the vegetable garden isn't ready yet so I've only had a few plants to care for! Next year I'm sure will be very different.

Mine all seem to OL - I can take a photo if you want?

Annie - Stacey had me starting mine quite early in the season (compared too for instance my tomatoes) and they've been in the greenhouse ever since. The purple riot has only just started to flower and my chilli willies (not from Stacey) that were germinated a month or so later are only just thinking about producing flower buds.
