Becks- there is always that, although at the moment it feels more like part time hours

Composting and wormery

Posted: 22/01/2013 at 10:36

I put cardboard packaging, cat food boxes and the like and most junk mail in although do have a tendancy to just chuck them in fairly large pieces, the same really for any veg. Had some compost for the first time, but will try and spend a little more time adding smaller pieces of stuff in the future.

I have read somewhere that you can put hair in as well, but surely that would take a very long time to break down?

Sounds like you're getting great enjoyment and the results Lyn

Good morning everyone, a bit more snow here over night- nothing compared to that 1963 Winter, that looked truly awful. But enough for me to have worked from home last week and taking a day off today. Don't live far from work but really don't like driving in the snow, it's the ice that I worry about. So an un expected day off for me

I liked the idea of leaving a sugar sponge out for late flying insects, I'm sure the same applies to early ones.

Seeds are up

I generally have a few wallflowers on the go for most of the year, they were one of the first plants that I grew from seed.They are so easy,quick and forgiving plants to grow. Wallflowers are tough and I think generally you can get them to grow and flower throughout the seasons. I've had really good results with an early sowing time.

Have to say that I really enjoy growing Biennuials, although at the time of sowing you think it will be ages before you see the flowers but then it comes round just as quick

Your description of a Japanese painting rings true with what I saw today, beautiful distinct markings. Thanks to both for helping me ID it, I've seen my first Jay.

I've been having a look around trying to ID it but only saw it for a few seconds each time. It definately had bright blue bars in it's wings  and a similar body colouring of a Jay. It was a beautiful looking bird. Funny until now I had always thought that Jay's were small birds
