I've always bought milk through my local farmers creamery ...... it has always been more expensive but at least I've always known I'm paying for very local produce to the people who provide the raw materials and own the co-operative 100%. I can't be doing with the 'big boys' taking their cut and crying poverty .......... 

Us too

However, if I give the wrong answer to someone's query, someone on here will always put me right

I've hung some washing out - weather it will dry or not remains to be seen - it's not raining, but it's not dry either.  I've also picked some more runner beans for supper this evening, and the first portion of Polka raspberries of the season

Autumn's coming a bit early - it's been quite a dry year so as Bookertoo says, the trees have produced their fruit, they've nothing more to do until next spring so they're saving their strength.

How to choose and hire a landscape gardener

Go to the library and get Alan Titchmarsh's How to Garden - Garden Design - or get it from Amazon or other booksellers - it's less than a tenner and so very helpful

Water Butt Issues

I take it that it's filled from a down pipe via a diverter kit?  Has the height of the butt been changed or has it been moved, even slightly?
