Sounds like you've been busy Clari.

You don't convince OH that you want chickens, you convince him you need chickens 

Nah, you've got it wrong - you convince him that he needs chickens 

Ha ha! This! I think I'll start dropping hints next year once the garden and house is sorted. But that wont stop me planning space in, just in case.

Just tried to be all girly and paint my nails - it hides the ingrained dirt lovely but I just realised I match the wall paint! (See link!) Guess you can figure out my favourite colour

We need some proper rain too OL. I can't believe I'm out with the watering can so soon having been convinced my garlic was going to drown it was so deep under water.

Potted up my chilli seedlings this afternoon which I'm hoping will give them a wee kick up the rump to get growing. The tomatoes are going like they're on a race to reach the moon.

ManShed is coming on nicely - wont be long til he's moved in the good and proper!

This evening I want to start coming up with revision 83 of the herb / vegetable gardens So that they'll be more in keeping with our new dietry needs (since all the fun stuff isnt allowed anymore).

Now; how to convince my partner we want a couple of chickens...

You'll get there eventually OL once your maternal instinct to protect your plants kicks in you'll be grabbing slugs bare handed!

I'm just hoping we get it to work even half as well as the success Edd has been showing us. They (future inlaws) haven't had any success with it though they're not sure why. But I have my gardening helper - this lovely forum!

Just posted on the wormery thread. It looks very much like this:

Vermicomposting for begginers

Hi Edd! I've just been given an empty wormery that looks very similar to this (image liberated off the internet)

 Where in the garden would be best to locate it? Would it benefit from being in the greenhouse at all or even just during the winter?

Would I just put composting material in the top level and let it rot down or put it in the bottom layer and go upwards as I fill it?

What do you suggest I add to it before the worms?


Thanks ever so!
