I'm a grumpy old gran'fer, wedded to my wife and the 'lotty. I have a passion for compost, and all veggies, wildlife and pond life. We have 8 fat frogs in our makeshift pond, nice mint growing in the pond,and Vee goes chattering to the frogs when we are up there. We are in Northumberland, on a NE facing slope, short growing season, clarty ground, and have a hive of bees in one corner. I concurr with Joe, about cat ass trophies, but the growing numbers of birds are learning to 'mob' the cats.
Sometime we feel that we have 'terminal uniqueness' with crop failures and similar, but this forum takes it away, when one learns of others gowing thru' the same difficulties.
