Yep - totally muddled up.

Sarah Raven has a sale on about an hour's easy drive from me. Has anyone ever been to one and is it worth it? I sometimes buy from her website but not often because it is expensive. 

Washing fleece

I washed the lot by hand. It was quick and very effective. Now its drying on the line....like a sheet of ice because I forgot to bring it in last night. Oh well. Thank you for all your advice and KEF, I will have more respect for my washing machine now!

Oh dear - I am a bit spooked. I think I will use my big sink in the utility room. At least they will not block the machine - I had not thought about that. Thank you.

I 'found' a couple of pieces of garden fleece lurking behind my log pile today. They are complete, not chewed or ripped. I had just forgotten about them. However, they are muddy and a bit green. Can I wash them in the washing machine? Would they survive a gentle wash cycle? Has anyone one ever done this?

I had this last year. I bought some environmesh, as Bob suggested and it worked a treat. No nasties of any sort. It also protected the cabbages because they were in a nearby bed- the E'mesh was so large, it covered everything nearby!

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

You are so well organised!

I still have to finish cutting hedges, spread compost mulch, dig a new bed which has been under black plastic since the spring, put in the last of the bulbs, rake up moss and clean the block paving. I'm sure there's more too. The rain has delayed so much this year.

I would love to have a go at growing some of these! Will try to pm you with address.

I asked for one on our local freecycle and got one. It is amazing - but very noisy and a bit temperamental. It stops when I try to put too much in and sulks for a while then carries on.

Wormery!

Edd's thread is brilliant. All you ever wanted to know - it's all there. I've just put my worms into the greenhouse for the winter. I did it last year and they survived, much to my delight.
