Just spoken to OH about it, he says they are best left as the smell of the dead ones will deter more from coming, they smell them and go somewhere else. 

He’s well used to rats, born and bred on a farm so knows quite a bit about rat behaviour.

We have several rats nesting around, it’s all farmland, never done anything after putting the poison Down,  if you can’t see anything just leave it.

they could be back in a while, they’ll just burrow in again, no point in filling holes in, they’ll fill in naturally in time.

I do have pictures of my snail, sadly died, but not in vain, his shell is used as an ornament down by the pond, I have seen tadpoles in there sheltering,

I had a snail for a pet, a huge African Land Snail, wouldn’t want him eating plants in the garden though.

you could actually hear him eating munching on his veg. 

This is a google picture as mine are all on laptop and I can’t be bothered to boot up.πŸ˜€

When I was a very little girl, (and that’s many years ago) my mum would never let me lick the cake mixture bowl, saying that I could get tummy ache from the raw flour.  Probably wasnt cleaned with bleach like it is now.

Feeding the birds

Posted: 06/12/2017 at 09:53

Yesterday the starling met up here in the field, thousands of them and took off, a great black waving sheet in the sky, beautiful to watch but I’m glad theyve  gone, it was costing me a fortune for bird feed, there’s still food, seed, peanuts and fat balls suet block in the feeders this morning. 

Nothing to do with gardening vent

But so true Frank. 

When my mum was a child, the only way they got fruit was to sneak under the green covering of a market stall, wait for something to drop on the ground, hand out and grab it, then leg it down the road followed by a load of abuse from the stall holder, 1930’s you’d think that was Dickens days.

my dad had a never ending supply of fruit and veg,  living in north Kent they had the orchards and fields, so scrumping a- plenty. 

And of course, sweets were unheard of.
