Where's Mike?

Mike - re your chapter four from your policing days. Please don't loose those chapters!  We at the National Emergency Services Museum are always wanting memories from those who have served to keep in our records and help preserve things to show visitors and school groups how things have changed!

(Can't ride a motorcycle myself - hell I can barely get my fathers off its stand!)

HELLO FORKERS!

Good decision KEF - the storm has just nipped by here and what a cracker! (I'm on the notepad thus safer from her surges). Doesn't look like it'll be staying long unfortunately.

Can't tell if that's thunder or just the neighbours banging around. Looks like even we might get some more rain - hurrah!

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!

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all!  We've had a few drops of rain but nothing interesting yet. Think I really ought tidy up the green house to day.
