East Anglia is highly agricultural and my family are farmers.  The area also has a fishing fleet - the consensus that I hear around here is that quitting the EU would spell economic disaster. 

Hope all those disaffected Cornish fishermen are taking advantage of this, and not just moaning into their pints of Doom Bar https://www.businesscornwall.co.uk/news-by-location/truro-business-news/2016/02/fisheries-grant-funds-for-cornwall/

Apparently Cornwall receives more EU money than any other county in England - but is there the possibility that some Cornish businesses have shot themselves in their collective feet by not following the regulations? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cornwall-35382262

I suspect that a lot of the moaning about the EU is because small business don't like paperwork - well, that's just life in the 21st century - we all have lots of paperwork to complete - it's not just the fishermen and the farmers. 

 

Soil fertiliser?

Hi Jordan  - if you're posting from a laptop or tablet go into the Settings under your username top right, and make sure you've got Advanced Edit enabled.  You should then get a green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post.  Click on that to post photos.

As for adding nutrients to the soil - now is the right time to add Fish, Blood and Bone (follow instructions on pack).  A slow acting organic fertiliser for all types of plant.

It's overcast here, but mild - it was nearly 10C when I got up this morning.  I turned the heating off and OH hasn't noticed

I've got a trip into the city later this morning for my dental check-up ... will probably pop along to the market - anyone want anything?

RABBITS!!!!

Good morning Chicky   and the rest of you as you arrive  and G'day to Pat

Lovely plants - aubergines look so beautiful when they're growing

Wonder how Hosta's doing?  He should be home with his feet up now.

Glad BL had a lovely day - which pub and which tea house were they?    We're not very well up on rural Norfolk pubs as we tend to head to Suffolk to see Ma when we've got a day to play ... we see her in the morning then have a pub lunch, but of course they're always pubs in the Southwold area which I know well. 

One day we'll explore Norfolk pubs with more rigour!

Runny beak, why do you think 'the floodgates will be open after the referendum' ? On what are you basing that statement?

If leaving the EU will prevent asylum seekers and refugees arriving here - why are there so many in Norway?

Tree identification

Lovely trees, and important in the ancient folklore of this country.  We've had to have one of ours felled ... we hope the other survives.

Totally agree Richard....

We are the 5th most successful economy in the world ... this has happened while we're in the EU
