not enough bees

Nor me Bekkie, I pick out the middles so that they make two strong shoots, then I pick off the bottom flowers, so mine havent done much.

I still have some in the freezer from last year, we had a bumper crop,

It is actually in the make up of the cement, nothing to do with metal

If we were to leave a glass of water for a long time, the glass would have the red deposits in it.

Maybe I should drink it then if its good for the MD

Red bird bath

Thats very interesting Edd, down here around the Dartmoor area, all the houses are stained with this red and I was told by a buil

der that it comes from the granite that makes the sand and hardcore.

All the houses are rendered no brick and it just runs down in great streaks until it eventually covers the houses

 

So yes, The area would have been volcanic. That accounts for it.

 I just scrub it off the bird baths. No shorta

ge of birds here.
