Netting! Without it you're very lucky if your crop isn't decimated. I use lengths of 25mm plastic water pipe which is flexible enough to bend into hoops. I then cover the planted area with debris netting which has fine enough mesh to keep out butterflies. Make sure it is securely fixed to the ground, either use tent pegs or bury it slightly.

Kathy, there are free Apps you can use. I use one on my phone called Photo Resizer. It's very easy to use and reduces the picture sufficiently to put on the site OK.

seeds for greenhouse

If you like sweet peas then they can be sown now for early blooms next year. They are very hardy plants so won't want any heat, don't cosset the seedlings they don't mind the cold, they may need transfering to a cold frame if your greenhouse gets too warm.

Where in the UK is beautiful for a little holiday home

A lot of areas, namely some districts in Cornwall aswell as the Yorkshire Dales and Peak District have introduced restrictions on second home buying.

Tourism brings in valuable income to these areas but there are plenty of existing holiday cottages to accommodate for this. Hopefully new homes will be targeted at the younger generation who want to stay in the community they grew up in.

First ever trip to the Dales, Fairygirl. My better half liked the idea of some waterfall photography and you're spoilt for choice here! We were lucky enough to get good weather most days and managed to fit in all of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks. We'll definitely come again, at this time of year the hills are lovely and quiet too!

 Pen y Ghent and Gaskill Force. We've had the good fortune to get on some lovely walks this week. Only yesterday was a washout, we were confined to the cottage as the lanes were flooded.
