The car was not part of the options valerieroberts  and still looks good.

 I know you see the beauty but it only lasts about 3 weeks and then it has to be thrown out!  

The price of insurance is incredible. 

But hey! just look at that face and tell me you do not get a smile. Sometimes that fist gets in front first though.

They are lovely covered in chocolate (dark, my preference) on a cocktail stick at christmas. 

I bet you have never tried that one!

It also depends on how you cook them. (steamed in whiskey works for me) Who wants a soggy sprout.

Hi again.

At the beginning of this week I had a total worm collapse with my recycle green worm boxes. They all died.

I normally keep them uncovered in a cold garden shed with sun light but i decided to cover the top of them with a black plastic sack to speed things up (in the dark)

It worked but it also kept the moisture in and all the pot worms and red wigglers came to the top in a big sea of worm slime. They hate sunlight remember. Unfortunately the black bag cover also trapped in all the obnoxious gasses and it was this that killed the bins. 

I thought I could speed things up but mother nature said no!

Anyhow I have just dug out my larger worm bin that was started in April from scratch with worms when it was very wet and very cold. Take a look.

That is about 1.5 to 2 foot of the best worm compost. 

What I did find that is undigested and a very nice purple colour is this and to be honest I do not have a clue what it is. It's like a mould.

Can any of you help me with is ID please. (its like a root or stem but the worms won't touch it ???

I bet it makes the most fantastic dye.

Anyone know what this mould or colouring is as it is a quite beautiful vibrant colour and has been buried deep for 3 month but the worms will not touch it.

I'm stumped.

Kind regards.

Hi mmbforrester and Ladybird4.

I do not think they are shield bugs/ stink bugs as they have a very specific shield pattern (as adults), The shell is easily to distinguished.

Until you can get us a closer image then they can only be small hedgehogs from the borrowers???

Your bugs are in the pupa or larva stage unfortunately and I do not know if it is helpful to plants or not?

What is the plant????
