17 degrees in a couple of days

Posted: Yesterday at 14:02

16 degrees here at present (Gloucestershire) but a pretty claggy day. Grey and overcast, with the sun making very rare appearances.  It is nice to get into the garden without freezing my wotsits off.

Shed damp/condensation

Posted: Yesterday at 14:00

If the only ventilation is a tiny gap above the door then I'm not surprised there is a problem with condensation.  My shed has a pitched roof and there is an air gap along both sides between the sides and the roof.  I did have trouble with rain penetrating one corner but overcame that by using the self adhesive flashing you can get on a roll.

You can't be too careful

The guy who posted this had better be very sure of the real situation or he could be in major trouble.  I accept that it looks very odd, but a friend of mine had a TIA and was certainly only in hospital a very short time.  Accusing somebody of fraud is a very serious step to take, particularly on an open forum.

I'm surprised that a hospital would even discuss patient movements with a person who has no connection with the supposed patient.

Good hygiene...

My grandad used to have a box in his shed filled with sharp sand soaked in oil.  He used to shove his tools into that at the end of the season once he'd rubbed any soil off them.  I never saw rust on any of his tools.

It should be on the address label when you receive your copy, I think.

Farm Shops

Posted: 17/02/2017 at 11:58

From a farm shop I would be looking for predominantly local produce, good quality and reasonable prices.  I don't think many farm shops could survive by selling only local produce.  I stopped using one of our local farm shops after discovering that half of the veg I'd bought was rotten inside and the shop didn't want to know.

Drainage below pond liner

Posted: 17/02/2017 at 11:54

It won't work!  Water will find it's own level and water in the pond won't force any water below the liner to a level higher than the surface level of the pond (Hope that makes sense). 

Has Trump completely lost the plot?

 I noted the outrage in the UK when Trump dared to mention his support for the UK leaving the union. You weren't one of those thinking he should have mind his own business are you?

See original post

 You're absolutely right - I wasn't one of those thinking he should mind his own business.  I believe very strongly in free speech, and that it's OK for people to disagree with my point of view - so long as they don't mind being wrong. (British humour which will generally be understood by Canadians)

The potting shed is an area for non gardening discussion.  You don't have to join in and the title of the topic gives a pretty idea of what to expect inside it.

If what America did only affected America maybe it could be ignored.
