Bees and wasps

Posted: 26/03/2017 at 16:54

I was  stung a couple of times last year. Once when I picked up an opened bag of compost - a queen wasp was hibernating in the rolled over top 

The second time was when I was picking a squash and a bee flew up my skirt 

A bit painful for a while and a nuisance but nothing more than that, thank goodness.

Salix caprea aka Goat Willow. 

Not a good idea to let it establish close to a building or drains etc.

Brrr!  Chilly outside now - we're too close to the North Sea when the wind's in this  direction  ... but the forecast for Norfolk for Tuesday onwards is warming up nicely ... the mulching can wait until then ...........

Ladybird   the bats here have learned to do that at a house a few doors away - we watch them on summer evenings flying around the sensor and scooping up the moths that are attracted by the light.

I've just been told that asparagus from Norfolk polytunnels is expected in the farm shop in a little over a week, all being well.

No date for the field grown crop yet.
