In that case, I would use it on fruit trees, or mixed in the compost heap.

It depends on what you have been burning. if it is wood ash , then its good sprinkled around fruit trees in spring. if the wood had paint on, or plastics were involved, I would bin it.

Dads in hospital again. The stone in his bladder was blasted yesterday,apparently as big as a walnut. Supposed to be a day job, but likely to be in all week as it was much larger than expected, and the procedure caused a lot of bleeding.

I have spent two days ferrying mum around. My brothers turn tomorrow.

I still have dive gear to wash off  and put  away.

Rotating Beans Yes / No

Posted: 28/10/2014 at 13:07

if you dont rotate any veg , you are more likely to get a build up of disease. 

With  beans it would most likely be chocolate spot. also if the beans stay in the same place, how are you going to rotate your other stuff such as brassicas which follow beans. ?

If you have had any disease at all, I would plant in a fresh spot the following year.

Fortisips cost about £2.50 each for a 200ml bottle. For loss of weight and no appetite, they need to have at least three a day. They have calories and vitamins, and fortisip protein has protein in as well. As Dad has lost a stone since his last hospital stay, I thought it would be obvious. There is some wasted, I knew one lady who had 6 a month of fortijuice. When I asked why, when she had a shopping trolley full of food, could eat plenty etc, it seems that someone had told her they were good to wash her tablets down with. She got quite upset when I suggested water instead.
