JUST FOR MIKE

Good morning, Mike

For what it's worth (ie me not being a medical bod) I have to agree with others saying you should let the medical professionals know you are in so much pain.  Unfortunately, they aren't going to be asking you how you're doing and you have to shout loud to the get the attention you need these days.  I know this from recent experience with my mum who has been back and forth to the hospital / GP for months.  Please, please see someone who can help.  You're in my thoughts.  x

I had the same thought Tasker.  Unless anyone can tell you for certain you could always give them a go and whatever the result you will have them for next year and get them in early.  Not the answer you were looking for, but just a thought.  

Don't Panic.

We have a frogs residing in our garden, no doubt eating all those pesky slugs and snails.  We very often some across one in our out-house when we have have a spring tidy out.  My neighbours got a cat last summer and this spring we have had to rescue a frog from its clutches about half a dozen time.  As a reward for their loyalty and good work in our garden I'm planning a wildlife pond for them - I just need to work out how to keep the dog out of it.  

New Veg Bed

Posted: 19/05/2014 at 09:51

Hi all,  I have just made a new raised bed for veg on part of my lawn.  I had put weed, feed & moss killer granules on the lawn about a month ago, before deciding to cut a veg patch out.  I cut grass sods off the top, dug out some of the soil from, placed the sods upside down in the bed and covered with the soil.  Now I'm wondering if the granules will affect the soil making it unsuitable for veg? and if so, for how long? Thanks for any advice.

Oh yes, obviously.    I should have thought about it longer.  I guess it'll have to be a fence.
