In response to Palaisglide, hello Frank! As this forum is run by Gardeners World mag,I guess I originally thought the subjects we could chat about would be connected to gardens, i e wildlife, and the other headings we regularly see now. Maybe I didn't delve deeper, or was afraid to introduce other unrelated topics.

Would you pay more for a pint of Milk ?

So nice to see so much agreement regarding the appalling price of milk. Coming from a long line of farmers, on both sides, it bothers me no end, to see so few dairy herds in our lovely countryside. Also a great deal less pasture land to wander over. 

Sprouting Broccoli

Interesting which varieties of sprouting broccoli gardeners are choosing to grow. Goodness, January is early to harvest, mine is usually April. Thought I would try one of the varieties from D.T.Brown's catalogue, next year. Not easy to make the right choice always.

I can't quite figure out why some forum members took my original post as a criticism. It was a case of "As a matter of interest...." I do not know how many forums there are, but two which are regularly used, are Digital Spy, and The Lounge. Seemingly covering every subject under the sun. I find it so nice to be able to chat about cookery, agas, dogs, music, politics, music, wildlife. Thirst for knowledge. Oh dear, that darn enquiring mind again!!

Here I am again! Well, well, what a response. I was just fascinated by what my fellow humans do. Most folk would agree that it is best to have an enquiring mind. Hence never bored.

I do not wish to be rude or say the wrong thing, but I often wonder where some people get the time from to contribute to this forum so often. Some names pop up on such a regular basis one wonders if they ever do any work. Is it good for someone to have the computer on quite so often?.

Feeding birds.

I am most concerned having just read about the fat balls so many of us hang up for our garden birds. It was said that many of these are low in fat, and include fillers like sand, sawdust, and even glue. Oh dear, I am shocked and upset. How can we be expected to know such things? I guess there are many makes. and indeed shops selling bird food. No doubt a paying game, as so many of us are keen to do our best for our lovely garden birds at this time of year. What can we do?

Does anyone have knowledge or thoughts on feeding fat to garden birds. I am particularly thinking of the fat  which has been used for cooking a meat joint. I hasten to add , this would be rendered many times so that all impurities have been thrown away.

building houses on green belt land

It is a wonder the government do not cover the whole country in concrete. Not enough people care for the countryside. Breaks my heart to see our glorious farm land disappear  at such an alarming rate.
