Tree Nursery bankrupt - online auction

Posted: 22/11/2015 at 13:46

I don't know if anyone has any trees/hedging to buy and I don't know what quantities are going to be offered in the online auction, but I thought I'd flag this up

Leaves

Posted: 22/11/2015 at 12:01

I bag our leaves up in black bin bags, tie the tops, make some holes in the bottom with a gardening knife and stack them in a corner out of the way.  They usually turn into lovely leaf-mould in about 12 months - sometimes I add them in layers to the compost heap when they've partially rotted down, usually after about 6 months.

I love using a treadle machine - very satisfying sounds

That would've been a huge investment back in those days Hosta!  Is it a treadle one?  I used to use my granny's treadle machine - wonder what Ma did with it

Runnybeak ((hugs)) no probs - you just look after yourself - you've had an awful shock too.  When your son comes to write his Victim's Statement make sure he includes the effect it's had on all his family - you are all victims of this awful event ((hugs)).

KEF   I don't use mine much nowadays, but I'd be lost without it.  In times past I've made the children's clothes,  many many pairs of fully lined curtains and blinds, cushions, bedcovers, and clothes for myself, from plain and simple to posh frocks and evening wear.  Not done that for ages ...  when did I ever find the time?

Wonky loves Christmas Pud.  We had one in our fridge left over from last year - I took it to her yesterday

Morning all. -4°, the world is white here, frost not snow. Is it snow where you are Dove? ...

Yes, snow!  Loads of squealing and giggling children somewhere nearby - they've obviously been sent outside to make the most of it before it thaws. 

KEF   Google the make and model of your machine and 'threading' - there'll be a Utube video or diagram or something somewhere on the internet .
