And without wishing to cast aspersions on the dogs in question - there are inherent difficulties in taking on some rescue dogs - one has no idea what sort of experiences or training the dogs have been subject to, that might make them unreliable in certain situations.

Fidgetbones - that is wonderful

Pdoc - hope all goes well

I've just planted 10 Hispi cabbage plants in one of the raised beds.  I don't have time to net them today so hope the pigeons don't spot them yet - OH calls the ringleader Peabrain 'cos he's not very bright, so hopefully the cabbages will be safe for a while.

Just thought I'd let you know that I was tempted - and succumbed!  While I was at the GC this morning I bought a small tray of 10 HIspi cabbage plants.  I've planted them in the raised bed where the courgettes were earlier in the season and I've sprinkled a few of the safer slug pellets around and a few chicken manure pellets.   I shall keep an eye on the pigeons, but it's likely that I'l be putting some netting up very shortly!

Get well soon Lily

I've just got back from the farm shop with the weekend supplies - and I got diverted via the GC and picked up a small tray of Hispi spring cabbage to plant out in one of the raised veg beds.  I haven't grown spring cabbage for years - let's hope the pigeons aren't hungry this winter, or when the netting comes off the pond it'll have to go over the cabbages.

Another load of washing is ready to hang out - the temp outside is nearly 20C - the washing will steam dry!

It's Mr Postgate's voice that does it for me Dove. Fitted the whole piece perfectly. Along with the clarinet of course. 

Or are we weird do you think? 

Do you mean that wasn't Noggin's own voice?     I wondered why he sounded so much like Ivor the Engine ....

I've had a serious crush on Noggin the Nog for most of my life

waste of time and money

That's a shame Denise - tell us about how you seeded the lawn and perhaps we'll have an idea about what's gone wrong.
