Pdoc ((hugs))  so glad to hear your mum has got some sight and some confidence back.  What a fantastic adventure you have planned! Now you really need to start feeding yourself up - like seals and walrus you'll need a layer of blubber to keep the cold out 

wooden planter

Just check on the How To tab at the top of the page. You'll find a list of projects including how to build wooden planters. You should be able to work out the materials you need from that. To price the materials you can look at the websites of DIY merchants such as B&Q or Homebase. 

New Weeding Tool

I find that a small hand fork, a small onion hoe and my fingers are the best weeding tools I've ever used.

Not allowed to grow veg!?  Sounds like the old restrictions imposed on 'new suburbs' built in the first half of the last century - No pigs or pigeons!

Bob, we don't seem to have a shortage of wasps here but I'm quite happy to send as many as it takes to Westminster to ensure that they get a proportion of stings commensurate with their 'stings' inflicted on the rest of us

Tilted garden taken over by weeds

Posted: 07/10/2014 at 19:21

Liri    Erin said that the ground was 'pretty much weed and grass free' last summer - if  live roots of perennial weeds were present then I'd have thought they'd have shown themselves.  If there are perennial weeds there now, and there weren't any before, then they've been brought in.
