She was 92 two days ago Jimmy. Pa died just over a year ago at 96. They'd been married nearly 70 years. Pa proposed after knowing her just six weeks. She always said it was because she knew how to work the new fangled milking machines. He said it was because she was the most beautiful girl he'd ever seen, and he kept saying that until the day he died.

Thanks Pansyface. The end was so peaceful, a wonderful way to go. Now the police have to come as there was a Deprivation of Liberty Order due to her Alzheimer's and they have to check there was no foul play. A formality but it has to be done.
I have a bed here for the night and am being looked after.

Pig manure for vegetables and fruit bushes

Posted: 27/04/2016 at 22:31
As had been said pig manure will be fine if well rotted. I grew up on a pig farm and it's all Ma's flowers and veggies ever got.

Any ideas what these are?

Are we looking at flowers or veg?
On phone so can't zoom on much, but they look a bit like a squash of some kind.

Pros and cons of using railway sleepers to create a retaining wall

Posted: 27/04/2016 at 21:22
We've used new sleepers to hold back the Shady Bank. The builder drilled through them and hammered steel rods 18" into the ground. They're rock solid and blend well with the garden.

Please help me ID garden droppings!

Posted: 27/04/2016 at 15:38
Hedgehog droppings are usually blacker and thinner than that and if you let them dry out you will find that they glitter a bit because they contain the wing cases of beetles. They won't usually contain fur.
