HELLO FORKERS May 2016 Edition

Now is the month of Maying

When merry lads are playing,
Fa la la la la la la la la,
Fa la la la la la lah.
Each with his bonny lass
Upon the greeny grass.
Fa la la, etc...

The Spring, clad all in gladness,
Doth laugh at Winter's sadness,
Fa la la, etc...
And to the bagpipe's sound
The nymphs tread out their ground.
Fa la la, etc...

Fie then! why sit we musing,
Youth's sweet delight refusing?
Fa la la, etc...
Say, dainty nymphs, and speak,
Shall we play barley-break?
Fa la la etc...


... but that's enough fa la la-ing ... let's get on with chatting ...


If you need to catch up, April's thread is here

 The gerbils

Raised Beds - Topsoil bottom layer.

I would mix it all up together.

I've never put rubble in the bottom of wooden raised beds - they're pretty free-draining as a rule.

Hello Anne, it sounds like Peltigera aka Dog Lichen. On my phone so can't post a link but if you google you'll find out all about it. The RHS website has good info.
Hope that helps

Good afternoon folks . More wood shavings purchased, plus large lidded plastic box for keeping them in along with some Chew Tubes not to mention egg trays from the farm shop. I can't put a link on cos I'm posting from my phone, but Google Adobe Gerbilarium and you'll see where nieces gerbils live
