Im sure this question has been asked before

I have a conservatory onto the garden and I grow seeds

I have several small black flies that spread all over the house 

? Any ideas

? Also why do we only call one thing that flies "A Fly"

Broad beans - should they look like this?

Mine grew up for 5 inches and then turned down and now grown up again

I sowed mine in small pots and then planted out

They have flowers on the stems so it should be OK for beans

? Should the new growth only appear from the centre of the slips on the ridge OR can they appear any where along the roots

Magpie Burying Nuts

Posted: 24/05/2015 at 10:13

The magpie was interrupted by one of the 2 foxes that visit my garden to eat the sultanas that I put out for the black birds

A squirrel has appeared in the last 2 days as well

There is definitely a " Pecking Order " in the world of nature 

Magpie Burying Nuts

I threw out some unsalted assorted nuts and noticed a magpie eating about 3 or 4 and them burying the same number individually a few feet away in the lawn and then again in the vegetable patch

This lasted about 15 minutes

? Is this usual friends
