Tea, what you need are some motion-sensitive TNT devices that go off when a certain numpty leans over your fence

Ah I suppose she complains because my garden isn't ordered, with rows of plants standing in straight lines. Since when did straight lines occur in nature? I prefer it natural

Bargain of the year

I have a black rock, a dutch bantam and a silky. They're all free-ranging - yes, I need to net stuff I want to protect. The dutch bantam lays her eggs in the parsnip bed lol

I have 5 Polish chicks too, just growing them on ready for the rare brreds in October.

Whats your plans for next year.

I've made a spreadsheet  And drawn up plans in Open Office lol 

I've done lists of seeds for flowers, when to sow them, where to sow them

Done the same with the veggies.

I've jotted down what will need support (had to, as I have Gladys flopping, cosmos too)

Two more raised beds to build to, to run in parellel to the two I knocked up a few months ago.

Greenhouse to erect, though heck knows how I'm gonna do it. It can't be THAT hard......right? 

Spreading lots of horse muck about before Winter hits.

Hoping my neighbour gets accidently speared by a stray harpoon.......... ooops back on topic!

Mostly been working out what to grow where so I can more of a succession next year. I'm actually itching to get started!

Ok, Emma, STEP AWAY from the caffeine now. I'm completely wired (that's wired, not...weird......Ok i'm that too)

It's about 30ft long. I don't hatch the chooks myself (;) ) I get them from auction and local breeders. The sunflowers were bought as seedlings from the local car boot - £1 for 12. Wish I'd have planted them further apart, didnt realise there were multiple flower heads on each plant. Hope they produce seed, I'd be happy to send you some

I'd rather just nuke her Azalea with Glyphosphate (joking, ofcourse)
