Hello Forkers, Hello all

Been a busy weekend I went to the potato fair on Saturday and I got my potatoes - Arran victory - maincrop going into my raised bed, Sunrise - second early and Swift - first early both for 2 potato bag, there was also plants there so a nice peach tree followed me home and a few plants, done a small bit of seed swapping too - was a bit knackering day out but got doughnuts yum yum and flumps  

Then on sunday went volunteering to Sholing valley study centre for the conservation day - helped with litter picking around Millers pond and got soaked with heavey rain all the way round coat leaked only shower proof so wet jumper and very wet trousers and cold me. Some bird watching done then as well

Did my bird watch on Sunday while I was a bit wet but weather dryed up a bit, in back garden - few birds around but not as many

Today was dry and a bit sunny, I have seen so many wildlife in the garden first a squirrel eating off the bird feeder then while I was trying to dig out the pond hole more found a slowworm had to move it, so small little eyes was saying its so bright, I put it under some more dirt in a better place.

I went to get some more bags to put the soil in and a ground sheet took them back to the pond area which is at the bottom of the garden and a fox was stood there next to the pond hole, looked at me shocked thought no one was out there it went back around the pile of twigs and under the wire fence - we have a train line at the bottom of the garden but lower down so guess was going to find another garden to go into was a nice sized fox fluffy tail - this was nearly 12:00

Are foxes normally out in the day?

Back sore heat patch on now so much digging done ouch

Hello all

Chicky I am here

To busy this weekend, so no rushing around for me, the birds have been loving the twig pile I made the other day maybe that will make them pop into the garden but they like hiding though, so will they be around on the weekend to count

Hello all

Just finished catching up on forum

Was a dry day today so into garden - got more bits cleared in the pond area and took a long time to remove old carpet from edge of pond from before - with the tree roots in that was 3.5 hours out in the garden. That was v late lunch for me

The robin came so close to me looking for grub in the ground

Fed the birds today, I am doing the bird count Chicky do hope there are birds about more this year they most all vanished when doing the bird count last year

So like the bionic'ness

Night Night all
