Ironing board might work but we have a rule that I will buy him any vacuum cleaner he wants but he is in charge of vacuuming - like a nervous dog I can't stand the noise to the oo5int I have to go and stand outside with my knees all trembling!!

He has an amazing ability to knock pots over regardless of how carefully I put them out of the way. Seriously I swear I'm one step off cementing the pots down in the patio to try and keep them upright.

The washing machine however I don't think he knows exists. 

I can't even hide anything in my car he has a habit of going in there to twiddle with things.

Playing the where can I hide things from my partner. I'm thinking in the washing machine might be the way forward...

KEF - I still can't get hold of the poo fairy so looks like my back gets a week off!

Just found a newt in the garden! First one I've seen here!

Alas can't upload photos on my mobile so here's a link to where you can see it.

Freen Composting material?

Definitely! Try asking around where you work for local gardening clubs or allotments,  there might even be someone you know who will take it off your hands for their own compost bins.

Garlic bulbs for winter or spring?

Posted: 07/06/2014 at 15:07

I'm not an expert but I think garlic bulbs don't keep terribly well. Certainly by December my autumn planting ones which hadn't been planted due to a house move were going very soft (planted on 18th December and growing just fine). 

 

Bumping this message to the top of the forum so those that know better than I can assist! 

Bees

I found a dead bee this morning in my garden - it appears to have succumbed part way through feasting on a pollen laiden plant!

Had to come back inside I was sliding all over the place trying to level the soil in the new chicken area 

Enjoy the dry while you can Percy! The rain is lovely and warm - must be summer!
