It's what they do Graham - there's no need to stop them, they'll slow right down as the weather gets cooler.

Do you have a greenhouse and coldframe as well, or is this going to have to do both jobs?

Hot composting

Posted: 27/10/2014 at 11:55

Hi Minosgardener and welcome   Etiquette??? on here???  No such thing - all are welcome to just jump straight in and tag along

I've never done hot composting, but Artjak is a Compost Master trained by the local authority - if she doesn't know I'm sure she'll know someone who does.

She'll probably be along in a bit ....

What they're doing is extremely dangerous and totally illegal.  It's a police matter. Use 101, the non-emergency number for the police - unless someone's actually in danger when you're making the call when you should dial 999.

Punkdoc, if you wait at your nearest bus stop the TWIGS' charabanc will pick you up on the way up to collect Fairygirl - we're taking the scenic route to Cornwall - Topbird's organising it

 Plenty of room for all

Of course you can come Lily   If there's not a seat available, in the past Pdoc has found that sleeping on Verdun's lovely tufts of grasses in the border can be quite comfy - well, that's where we found him the following morning anyway

Can somebody arrange to bring Stacey - she can have the comfy couch on the other side of the inglenook - as long as she brings some chilli sauce with her

I'm sure he's ok - he's probably just changing his routine in preparation for hibernation.  Our big ash trees are losing their leaves now, and it seems that this triggers his hibernation instinct - he starts appearing in the daytime on dry mornings gathering up the leaves.  We don't rake them up and bag them for leafmould until after hibernation is underway.

It's lovely and sunny here too DD - think I'll try to get out there early today
