I agree with what you say GemmaJF - and as someone who's been tangentially involved in agriculture all of my life, I think that one of the huge problems with the use of agrochemicals is the  use of pesticides and fungicides prophylactically rather than using them in response to a problem, just as was done with antibiotics in animal feed

Change of plan here - son arrived and decided that as I was coughing and sneezing and and have a bit of a sore ear I shouldn't go and stand around in a draughty warehouse with him, so he had a coffee, gave me a pair of his jeans to patch, and left!   Now I have a sewing day planned

Info re Cash4clothes here http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=2638869  

Never used them myself.  When I lost a lot of weight I car-booted the good stuff and did reasonably well - but I think now that I should have taken some of them to a Clothes exchange type shop where they sell them on and share a percentage.  There are several about.

Good morning all  

Sharp frost and freezing fog here!  I'm being picked up later to go to a local auction.  I shall wear my thermals!

Something of an apology.

Lincolnshire is lovely GWRS - we visit the inlaws there frequently - lots of lovely gardens to see - obviously good growing soil and more sheltered than here - at least that part of Lincs is.

Crikey! Who pressed the freeeeezing button?

Freezing fog and ice here in Norfolk this morning.  Temp in back garden down to 0C but much lower in front garden. 

I've just heard from son that it's 4C and dry and fine down in Suffolk

Hi Dove, I think it was Adblock Plus. It may have been on another thread. I was all over the place yesterday. I have Safari. 

Perhaps Chicky will see this and help you.

Thanks Woody - Edd rode to the rescue too - I'll get something sorted out soon.  Not this evening - too tired after leaf raking and Toad.
