Rustic trellis

Posted: 28/01/2013 at 19:49

Hi bunny, we used hazel as a make shift trellis type structure to block a gap in the hedge. About 4-5 verticals and then the rest was woven in horizontally.

Also used fresh cut hazel for stakes to support Lupins, was very surprised last year that the stakes started growing fresh shoots, not sure if they are going to sprout this year.

Not had any experience about willow but OH tells me they go soft quickly

Afternoon everyone, been on a little jaunt to pick up a worktop style cooker. Working perfectly and in really good condition £20! I love a bargain.

Going to enjoy warm baguettes, bacon & brie and settle down to Afternoon drama on BBC 4- Animal Farm.

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
