Sorry to hear about your chooks Woo2, we have a mangey old fox on our site who thinks he owns the place and doesnt even bother to run away quickly, saw him yesterday and he just stared at me for ages!!
GG I didnt know Sunflowers kept the slugs away, you learn something new everyday! will have to grow loads more
I put my onions and garlic in end of September and both are doing well, probably about 8" high, but we did have some warm days(I'm in Glos)
Didnt spend much time at the plot this weekend as I thought it high time I cleaned the car, bathed the dogs, etc. did manage to paint some of the reclaimed trellis I found in a skip though. Its looking quite smart now!! I checked the label on the grape vine I bought, it is very hardy, out door variety so will put some trellis up for it near the shed and it can grow up over the roof.
