HELLO FORKERS!

More than slightly moist here. But since I'll be chained to the computer I don't mind so much. Just glad we were treated to yesterday!

WHATS UP WITH THAT MOWER

I'm writing tour guide crib sheets this morning, it puts me in a mischievous mood.

I'm most surprised the poor sad pathetic little troll with no friends (why else would they be posting here?) hasn't been told to check the mowers smoke box. Wont work without that white smoke box!

It will be suffering a lack of, or poor and un-attentive, maintenance. Your friend will have allowed damp grass to gather in crevices during mowing and failed to fully clean it out properly which can cause pressure on parts not to mention affect cooling.

 

I claim my £5.00.

Thanks Bekkie - I'm doing a teachers open day in November as we've some new exhibits opening (I'm very excited about them) so I'll raise it with them then and see if there are any schools interested in joining in a dig for victory and perhaps venturing into a few more vegetables. 

David - thanks for the link I've only looked quickly but it looks fantastic! 

Lyn, that would be really kind of you! I'm sure the more variety we have the more we can inspire kids into gardening and if nothing else help them learn that food doesn't always xome from Tescos!

Topbird has it in one. The seeds are required for planting over the Easter weekend / school half term holiday and then we'll be keeping in touch with our young horticulturalists with advice and encouragement as well as updating them with our own plants we'll be growing at the museum before hopefully getting them to bring some of their produce for pumpkin carving in October! 

Bekkie - we don't really have the space for composting I'm afraid. I'm hoping my wormery will be able to keep us well supplied if a local garden centre can't be convinced to donate a broken bag.

I'd just like to say thank you to you all for all your support.

Bekkie - we work with the job centre offering work placements to people who have been unemployed for a long time. They get to add us to their CV (also it stops their benefits being cut) and we get some help, especially important as we're rebuilding the top floor for some new interactive displays. We also have volunteers from the Autism society who come with carers and get involved with the running of the museum - I must confess they often work harder than some of our other volunteers!

Thread started Bekkie - hope it makes sense I'm ploughing through some pre work "Great Fire Of London" breakfast reading so my mind is scrambled. 

TopBird - its National Emergency Services Museum over in Sheffield
