wildlife camera project

That looks great Ben   The photos are really clear and you're right, the animals obviously aren't aware of the flash or camera at all.

I agree with Sanjy - more options for fixing it would be a good idea.  Could it be fixed to a stake which is hammered into the ground?

I agree with Blue Onion - take good photographs and sue via the small claims court - it's relatively easy and inexpensive. 

Good luck

Peach Tree Disease

Plants are usually susceptible to powdery mildew when they are under stress from being too dry at the roots.  Is its pot big enough? Has it been regularly watered?

If you are using a fungicide make sure that it is suitable for use on edible plants.

Wonky has been WONDERFUL!!!   Raspberries have been tamed.  Weeds have been pulled up and binned.  Rubbish has been binned.   Runner bean patch has been manured.  Runner bean teepee has been erected and runner beans have been planted.  What is more - deeply troubling anxieties about layout of garden are troubling me no more - Wonky has helped me to prioritise.  This autum will see a re-modelling of part of the garden - there may even be a pergola!!!   She is a complete star!!!

For my part I have fed her with bacon baps and copious mugs of coffee, and allowed her to feed our robins

Oh, and guess what folks!  Hefty has returned - large amounts of hedgehog poo were found in the garden this morning - food will be put out this evening once the blackbirds and woodpigeons have gone to bed

Rosé and olives are now being taken whilst pork chops and Charlotte potatoes are cooking - they will be eaten with buttery broad bean shoots

Is this Japanese Knotweed?

I've done two lots of 20 - does that count?

Pooh KEF - I can smell you from here

Wonky is being a star - digging over the veg patch where the PSB was, and tackling the raspberry runners. 

It's scorching here - I've come indoors and am waiting for the kettle to boil
