See original post

I wasn't putting bird food out at night, I was putting the mealworms and suet mix out during the day time but they hadn't finished it and I noticed that it was going by morning.


 Duh, got it ... I'm easily confused

Thanks Lyn   Niece has had an exciting summer and has an important interview coming up, so it'll be good to catch up with her.  We've also got some applewood prunings in the back of the car for her gerbils ... a present from Wonky.

Thanks Pat   It'll be lovely to see OH's mum and sisters/OHs and our lovely niece ... it's been a while since we last visited because of my broken foot and then our holiday.

I agree with Lyn ... most food put out at night will be taken by rats ... we feed hedgehogs but we do it in an enclosed space which we monitor carefully to ensure it's not attracting rats.

Good morning all   G'day Pat 

Definitely  autumnal here this morning ... glistening webs stretching across the garden   

Heading to MIL's in S Lincs tomorrow for a couple of days, so today will be a bit of a tidy and sorting of clothes into piles for packing in the morning.  There's a very good GC just down the road from MIL so I may just invest in a few bulb bargains while I'm there

Weed and feed

If I'm using similar products I usually do it when rain is forecast within 24 hours ... seems to work just fine.

As Lyn says, the weedkiller isn't immediate ... it  takes a while to work and the weeds may put on a growth spurt first.  Don't panic.  It'll be fine.    I'd give the moss at least ten days or more to blacken before raking it out.
