I can't agree more Desmond, bring back Toby and Berryfields! I liked the youtube clip, very quick and easy using a simple metal tube. Nice.

Talkback: Eating weeds

It's true you don't want balsam or knotweed on your plot but, if they are there at least they are both edible. Young knotweed shoots (the size of asparagus) taste just like rhubarb. Flowers of balsam are good in salads and the seeds taste like walnuts. Nice blog, I often put bittercress into my sandwiches when I'm weeding gardens.

chrissy, im with you, Catty's always say that cats are clean animals, hmmmmm i wonder, cats never do their business in their own garden, no, that would be filthy, they just saunter into other gardens, and you know the rest. surely this is feline fly tipping!! if my lumbering boxer dog vaulted next doors fence, and graced his cabbage patch with a pound or two of his finest, he would be branded as a disgusting untrained mutt, but when the boot is on the other paw.............. some people are just dogist:-)

What is it with the automatic vents? Mine have a habit of opening at the merest hint of sun and then not closing. So i too am in and out shutting the things when the sun goes in and the wind gets up. Suppose i should just disconnect them!
