..............Just had upset daughter on the phone - their much-loved pusscat is poorly - went to the emergency vet today and spent £150 on scan and painkillers - local vet tomorrow for bloodtests   


Poor pusscat didn't make it - kidney failure 

Sorrow was a white cat with three legs who adopted them by taking up residence in their garden shed - when the snows came they took her in and she's been with them quite a few years now .... they'll really miss her.

Verdun - sorry about glass fiasco - hope you can get it replaced or boarded up before wind gets in and whirls around like a dervish!!!  


cobnut / hazelnut maintenance

Posted: 30/12/2013 at 11:08

I agree with Nut - you could remove a few of the older stems right at the base.

Very interesting info here on coppicing hazel, although the aim is more to provide timber for hazel fencing etc rather than nuts.$FILE/FCIN056.pdf

Thanks Nut - washing is in - nearly dry   Huge number of OH's socks  - at the last count he only had two feet - OH is just setting off to Waitrose in the village to get some milk and salad stuff - he's going on his bike - that means the rain will start any minute
