I wouldn't wish a royal baby on anyone, no chance of a normal upbringing, endless obligations when they get older, always subject to press intrusion and criticism.


You are right AWB.

They will be needing a extra bed room in the 10 bedroom Anmer Hall!

Let me think, who is paying for this one again?

I would leave them out. Try and raise them off the ground if you can.

So Edd, where do you consider a right place for fossil hunting?


The north east coast line is great for me, Staithes to Whitby being my favourite but we also have a lot of old quarries dotted about and the scuba diving often turns up some goodies.  Any where within the Cleveland Basin is good. Here is a map of the local Jurassic plant fossil sites.

Welcome. lynnezee.

There are no stupid questions on this site. It is all a learning curve.

You have the right idea so keep earthing up as they grow and yes you can add fertilizer.

Making Nematode Soup from Slugs

Posted: 02/05/2015 at 13:19

I have tried this method and still do. Yes it is smelly and yes it works. The comment about "being genuinely kind to wildlife" is a bit of a oxymoron as the nematodes produced are wildlife and the plants that they save from the slugs are wildlife. Those saved plants promote further wildlife so I do not see that as a problem.

The only problem with this method is that it is too good and you soon run out of slugs to continue the supply of the nematodes. (That is not a open invitation to send me all your slugs. Thank you.)

I do not think that I do anything too obscure granma.

The worm farming has become a profession so that does not count. 

I spent one day a week hunting out and digging midden tips as I collect ginger beer bottles and Victorian ointment post. I compete in drystone wall competitions but that is more a practical thing. When I can afford it I go scuba diving. (not very often)

Recycle old electronics circuit boards and phones to extract the gold. I have various pallet projects on the go, mainly planters and garden benches and have a fascination with Taphophilia but that is just a history thing. Im a bit of a entomologist and I love my mushrooms. Do quite a bit of climbing when ever I get the chance and a splash of fossil hunting when I am at the right place.
