got my horse poo today - was in bins so emptied into bags - but think the rain got in was wet and sloppy, was quite green as well they must have eaten a lot of grass and it made dads car smelly horrible to breath

later lugging it down the garden got some on my trousers yuck and it was so heavy sorted it all out forking a bit kept making me feel sick,  it is all covered up with black plastic keep the fly's off and smell away and to help it rot down

sorted out compost bin 2 into 3, I do have names for the bin but.....

Thanks Stacey for the offer

Evening all

it's been a hot day after a tidy inside, garden time I had to sort out emptying out the compost bin - six bags worth of compost not all well rotted but good.

I put half the next bin over into the emptied bin still half to go but that means lifting the bin and there are flying ants around the next door bin to it starting to think of taking off loads all crawling around .

Then it was sorting out the horse poo compost emptied the bin bags bashed it to help compost quicker then added water and bio char and covered with plastic hope this composts ok

fed the birds

watching HC I would buy the verbena - new one can't remember the name

Hello all

Rain and thunder got here at 3 ish I was out planting a few foxgloves near the pond and got wet had to finish up and shelter in my plastic gh, lucky I had done the plant tray shifty into other gh of newly potted on seedlings from the other day

fed birds too -  the food goes down so quick might be because the mice and rats eat it too but not all the feeders so the birds are eating a lot too

love your garden nice and mucky dirt, but looked good like the amount of grass used and the agapanthus popping up through

Hello all, been up to the station, back quite a while but tired.  Planted out loads of plants into the tyre planters and some in the raised bed.  Watered all in, as no sign of rain tonight.  Some tyres are a bit like your ground Kef, concrete soil.

Night all.  Off to bed now.
