Yviestevie - that's not good - that's a real training issue that needs following up with the carer's management.  Your poor mum ((hugs)) for her and you too.

I think you just stir it (you can buy a stirring thing for them) rather than 'turn it' top to bottom.  The idea is that when the compost is made you just shovel it out of the bottom and use it. 

Never tried it as we've always had square wooden bins, but I think that's the theory.

Big weed problem

Posted: Today at 10:40

Look on the bright side - if the clover wasn't there you'd just have a load of mud by the time the winter weather has finished with it. 

Clover takes nitrogen from the air and fixes it in its roots, so when you kill it off and dig it in next spring it will provide nitrogen for your grass - just as a green manure would.  In fact some varieties of clover are grown just for that purpose. 

Explain to anyone who asks about your lawn that growing clover over the winter is intentional as it will provide long term benefits to the soil

It's like the price of most things, the costs of transport, packaging, processing, admin etc are usually much higher than the cost of actually making the object and form a large proportion of the selling price - ask M&S

The mystery of the disappearing hedgehogs

Posted: Today at 08:38

Our regular big hog is still visiting most evenings - but he's always been late to start hibernation - he builds his hibernaculum mainly from fallen ash leaves from our big trees, and they always hang onto their leaves until quite late so I wonder if that's something to do with it?
