Favorite tomatoes

Posted: 09/03/2013 at 10:58

The coming summer is uncertain - hot? cold? wet? dry? whatever, I recommend that all tomatoes are grown in a greenhouse. Nothing is so upsetting as to see yur lovely thriving outdoor tomato plants decimated by blight. (well, almost nothing).

Talkback: Adopting hens

I just love your pictures Flobear, my hens are called Blackie, Flossie, Polo, Mary-hen, Sophie and Puff. We have a big garden and they have the run of it during the day. We have to shut them in a run when we go out as there are lots of foxes round here. I would love to be able to afford an Egloo for them!

Talkback: Adopting hens

There is something almost magical about adopting hens from batteries. We collected 6 poor, nude & frightened birds from a farmer thereby saving them from an early death. When we got them home we put them in a quiet shed with natural light. At first they stood looking round, silent & afraid to move. After a couple of days we left the door open and they carefully came outside making lovely quiet sounds. in a few weeks their feathers had grown and they were clucking, scratching up grubs & laying eggs. The drawback was that they were in love with us and came running up whenever we appeared. If we sat down on the grass they sat with us (and on us) no peace for the wicked! What a joy they are.
