I must take back what I previously said about the Samsung tablet being useless for the GW site, before, I couldnt get pm's nor could I see what I was typing.

I have now installed Chrome and it is absolutely perfect in all aspects.

Hey Gran! In the words of the immortal Cher 'baby, please dont go!

We all love you and I know you just had a little panic attack, just for a mo, please, dont let one person spoil it for you, I was thinking along the same lines after the pm I had from Him, but why should we, the mods will soon see who causes the trouble, and I can assure you, sweety, its not you.

Lots of love to you and your darling grandaughter xx

The one I bought from Amazon that I put the link up above is 5x7mm holes, i pinned it down well around the edges then you can place a few slug pellets in there knowing that they cant harm any hedgehogs frogs etc.

Those self suficiency books are very good, I remember having one of the first ones back in the '70's when my hubby was with us and he wanted to build a wind turbine but decided the cost of connecting it to the grid was too expensive, I dont know if we thought about running to the genny, but it never came to be.

Sounds like a big NO then.

Agree with dove, wellies stuck in mud and your foot ends up sinking in, and if your socks were gathered at the toe end, these were never seen again.

I have only done relief miking, would like it as a full tiime job.

There are some beautiful bogs on Dartmoor, feet sink in lovely! They bubble, is it methane?

As long as the mesh has tiny holes its ok but if a leaf touches the mesh the little wotsits will lay through it.

Someone on here uses scaffolding mesh, cant remember off hand who it was,

Well you would be unaware, forgive you for that Mike cos I have only just opened it!

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

Posted: 13/12/2014 at 00:36

Same here Perki, Penstemons still flowering and fuchsias, Aunty Rinums and a few others, oh and a rose covered in buds, dont think they will bloom though!

The tubs were still blooming till late and you dont feel you can just throw them away.
