Clear moon,frost soon.

A year of snow is a year of plenty.

Rain before 7,fine before 11.

The sharper the blast,the sooner tis past.

When a rooster crows at night,there will be rain by morning.


There was a clear moon last night but we had  no frost.

It was raining first thing this morning and continued to drizzle until midday.

We have had a sharp wind for a couple of days

Snow forecast next week,so will have to wait for that one..

No rooster in the area,but we have roast chicken tomorrow.


Think all the above to be taken with a pinch of salt.

Google not updated for us lately,however we had a man round trying to sell photos of the houses taken from the air,Unfortunately it was the day we were pressure washing the patio,two small figures dressed in head to toe waterproofs and all the garden pots stacked on the lawn was not a picture we wanted to display ............

It just goes to show the benefit of letting children have their own little patch of garden and try growing some veg themselves,....... which.encourages them to eat what they grow,none of this nonsense of only eating prepacked veg.

Totally agree with Dove,If you eat meat you want to know its origin and how it was reared,Our local butcher raises his own lamb and beef,you can go to his farm and look around,I would rather do this than not lnow what I was buying.

Absolute respect for vegetarians in their choice,but thats what it is their choice.

Have no problem with this advetisement by Waitrose.
