Thought I was still dreaming this morning. A white mouse was eating dropped sunflower seeds by the back door, along with the back door vole. Disturbed by great tits, it headed towards the compost heap, while the back door vole went back into the door sill.

Cloudy here. I was expecting sunshine today for a day out.

Jennifer and keepitlive,please PM me your address.

I think that hot lips has to be increased by cuttings. I intend trying that this week, so they root before winter.

Am I a saddo?

Some of the trees in the wood have preservation orders, but it would be possible to work around them. A lot are weed trees and could easily be removed.The old orchard would be cleared as you cant put a preservation order on a fruit tree, they are recognised as having a limited life.

Whereabouts are you, Rosemummy?

I know my brother has been doing jobs for people who used to live in his area, but moved some distance away, and then couldn't get anyone suitable.

He has also had people ring him up after getting his number from the gas safe register(used to be called corgi)

I think rated people have to pay to go on the list, so it may not be as good as they claim. Also , conversely, there may be better people around who get enough work by word of mouth, and dont have to pay to get work.

Hi, I want to grow some veg, I have a small list & need advise on when to plant

Onion sets can go in in March

Chilli peppers  in heat in March

wild rocket, any time from march onwards

Potatoes,outside  around easter

Kale from March onwards to July

Pumpkin or squash, in heat from March

Rhubarb seed in Spring, but crowns go in in Winter.

Sweetcorn, sow in individual pots in Early May to plant out in June.
