Digging  seed planting, plant/seedling planting possibly. Watering can already be done automatically with seeper hoses and taps with timers.

Go to Amazon and type in Garden Watering Systems - you may be surprised how much is already on market.

No its not down to funding so much as die hards who don't want to spoil the 'look' of the victorian town, I guess they don't have foxes, older people etc who struggle with all this. Feel very strongly about it

Enough, think I'll have aChristmas avatar any way

Yep we PAY for brown bin empitied every 2 weeks. Came from a place where just bins - hate these plastic bags, foxes and cats rip them, wind blows them about. There was a move to introduce re-cycling bins, chairman of council walked out - big thing. No re-cycling bin though.

Glass has to be taken to banks.

Then complaints about traffic queus at tip - mostly peope emptying garden rubbish as they haven't the brown bins

We don't have bins to be emptied here, Still in the land of plastic bags: pink for recycling,(very limited) black for eveerything else.- only one bag a week! WE pay to have a brown wheelie bin for garden rubbish, it all really bugs us.

So pleased some one has managed to cheer Geoff up

Foots improving thanks - just have to remember not to put weight on it apart from walkng, realised when planting a pot with rhubarb in that digging means too much pressure on foot
