Levelling an area with top soil

You are spot on CharleyD

Dig it up and level it, removing stones (tread it over after) Then leave it a bit to settle. 

Then cover with extra soil or compost (to fill holes and level again (tread it over).

After you have got it level then save yourself a fortune and grass seed it! You are at the perfect time to do this. Use boards to walk over it and keep it flat.

Turf has other problems and you still need to keep off it.

I'm sure others will agree.

My condolences Clarington

Food hygiene and Health and safety is a big expense but a must, pain in the arse! (i'm sure it is done for a good thing) 

I've just been banned from sending boiled eggs to my LO school because of salmonella. But they can use their own school fresh eggs (boiled) at a price!!!!!!

Can anyone remember how to make paste eggs hedgehogs with rose pricks (thorns) as I have tried and they do not look the same as when I was 5 years old. I even got googly eyes to make them look cute. I do not remember anything else but glued on rose pricks and a face? 

Help needed, please. what is missing?

Compost heaps and rats

Wintersong wrote (see)

I have invested in a turning compost after I discovered a mouse nest some  weeks back in perfect dry conditions with shredded paper for the babies   I've never added kitchen waste of any kind.

They were cute babies but had to go, so I wet the compost thoroughly and left alone for mummy to collect. After that i dismantled immediately and plan to triple my revolving bin once test results are confirmed. It's quite heavy to turn initially (full bin) but after two weeks is swinging as freely as a 70s pop icon 

otherwise you could try a hotbin, should be same safety 

Do you have one of them compost augers Wintersong? They are good.
