Maybe the first step is to ask if she has house insurance. A lot of people don't if they are hard up, even though it is often a false economy. If not, claim on your insurance, but that may affect youe premiums next year.

fidgetbones is right. It looks like your neighbour is nice and I understand you want too keep it that way and why not. That is how we would all like it.

But. Other people think different. They think every thing comes down to money and thats it!!!! 

I am right in stating that the tree is under their protection and any damage is there fault. That is the law!

Speak to them and try to explain it to them, If not Write and explain it to them. The best thing is try and be nice and explain it to them without a official complaint. 

I know nothing has been said but i would have they would have come round and said ( Sorry we will sort it out) 

It sounds like the Young ones do not give a s**t)

Please, please and please try and bight your tongue for the min. But it looks like you will have to pursue deeper.

It all comes down to money unfortunately  If we could all grow it then there would be no falling out. Ever. 

Makes you think?

First things First newticle.

decomposing caravans!!!! how does that work!!!!!!!!


A: poly-tunnels  vary in size the Smaller  1'-2' foot ones are there to raise the heat in the ground and stimulate earlier conditions and growth.

The big ones are just big green houses.


A: Brick bases (beds) are just like the bed soil but you control what goes in there and you know what you are putting in. The brick beds are filled to the top (or near) and you can put in what you want ( many topics on raised beds. on here just search) 


A: There are many answers and no mistakes, only experiments. I like raised beds because they are easily maintained and off the ground. Handy to reach, but i dig big deep trenches for my potatoes (for show)  You will just have to experiment and enjoy

I am sure others will be along to share their joy and experiences with you.

Egg dilemma?

Posted: 30/12/2014 at 19:03

I obtained  60 organic Bamtam eggs, before Christmas and now have 10 left. all the rest were used in Christmas goodies. 

I did the float test and they have tested positive. So they must be " out of date now"


I have a good use for the shells but the eggs (inside look and smell fine to me )

What do I do with them? (400ml) liquid?

The compost heap (worm bins)sounds like it would be the best option but I would not like to cause any worm collapse (or smell) at this time of year.

It still looks like a good omelet too me.

Any ideas??? 

PS. I have mixed them now so can't separate. It all seems such a waste
