They must think we're idiots Fairy - thinking we'd click on a link they'd sent us

And as for the pigeon .......... well, you know what my distant rellies are like - gatecrashing every party, squatting in seaside cottages

If you listen to the Archers ....

You could start winter cropping brassicas off soon (Savoy and January King cabbages, kale, purple sprouting broccoli) - plant them out as soon as they're big enough - net them against Cabbage White butterflies and pigeon, and they they'll more or less look after themselves and you'll have cabbages and greens in the winter and spring.

I'm picking lovely purple sprouting broccoli spears now from the seeds I sowed last spring

Help Identify These Plants Please!

I'm always hesitant using bags that that have been open since the year before since grabbing hold of the rolled over top of the bag and annoying a sleep queen wasp who'd chosen it for her hibernation bedchamber.

Ouch!!!!  That hurt!!!

Has anyone else received a PM from one of those idiots who were posting inane tosh on the forum last night?

I advise you not to open the link. 

Just copy it to Nora and she'll deal with it in the morning.

Just had a photo from son - a woodpigeon sitting on the windowsill inside his house

He said he pulled into his driveway and looked up at the window where his cat always sits - there was the cat at one end of the window ....... looking at the woodpigeon at the other end of the windowsill looking back at the cat!!! 

It can only have got in down the chimney.

It must have been in the house for some time ... he has a lot of feathers and pigeon poo to clear up ... the cat is very angry that my son has stopped all his fun

There are good grubs - there are also some very special grubs like Stag beetle larvae - I know it's a sort of instinctive reaction to finding bugs, but I don't squidge things unless I know 100% it's going to do real harm in my garden and there's no alternative and it's not an endangered species.
