HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

We lost the torch last week. I discovered it in the greenhouse this afternoon. Now I remember...

We have been out for a curry. It is already freezing out there, we had to scrape the car window.

Well I did have some recorded, but the Tivo box broke on Tuesday, so I've lost the lot. The new box has exactly nothing on it.

Well we went through the jungle to access a beach that had nesting turtles. There was a wooden set of steps to go down, and the chick was in a nest level with the top step. It was remote and not very often visited.You needed a four wheel drive followed by a mile walk in jungle. We may have been the first people it had seen. It was a big chick, about a foot tall.

Treads for spades

You can buy spades with treads, or you can get some of the split polyprop that plumbers merchants sell for edges of shower glass cubicles. Put a length of that on top of your spade blade.

Grass removal

Posted: 18/11/2016 at 06:54

There was probably a lot of grass seed in the mix. In the warm damp weather it has germinated. If they are just seedlings, hoe them off. If they are the perennial couch grass type, fork it all over again, removing any piece of root you can find.  Burn or council bin it. (Do not compost it) Then cover it for winter with thick  black plastic or layers of cardboard. When you remove it in spring, it should have warmed the soil and be ready for sowing.
