We got down to minus something in the low teens some years back when we lived out in rural Suffolk on a smallholding ... that was pretty grim.

Now it's clouded over here and cooled down ... OH is back from his shopping expedition with some new tee shirts, and now we're both just flollopped ... conserving our energy

I don't like using chemicals either ... but as I said above, I used glyphosate to deal with the bindweed.  There's a time and a place ... etc etc etc
