'Swift'...an excellent variety, ready for harvesting in 8 to 10 weeks and that's very quick.

Trust your uncle Dave!

 

Need some petrol lawn mower recommendations please

For me it would have to be a Honda...they are fitted with their own engines, which are (by comparison) like a Rolls Royce to the others.

Hayter used to make quality mowers, alas present production is fitted with USA based Briggs & Stratton engines....these are to be found in Mountfield and other lower end machines.

Joyce, you don't have your robin as well trained as mine. When I'm trenching my veg plot and am throwing the soil forward, he/she in their eagerness to get at the big juicy worms sometimes nearly get buried alive.

Had some happy times with this as a kid, and tried to copy the drummer.

Wondering if anyone would be interested in a "PHOTOGRAPH CATEGORY"for a day?...just for fun.

 

Interesting idea, meadowland, although I don't think this thread has sufficient interest to support it.

Love your robin shot, meadowland....sadly I couldn't enlarge because the file size was too big....so I had a tinker with it.

It's my birthday
