No hosepipe bans-just flood warnings-the weather chap hinted last night that after the weekend something drier and brighter is on the horizon-which horizon he did not specify

Lottie I have the same problem with one and it has been going for weeks-the advice I was given is to make the nest an uncomfortable place to be and taking way eggs-I made the mistake of putting in china eggs as a substitute and that is wrong too-it is a matter of breaking the habit apparently

The only thing about making the nest uncomfortable is where do the laying hens lay?

On the dry days I put on the grass in a separate run-hoping this will work-so any ideas welcome-cos I am stuck too

Spiders under the settee is not good news-time for a swift exit

After 24 hours or so of paining mats and logs I can now report it has finally stopped in the last hour- not in time for the morning trek to the bottom of the garden of course-that would be asking too much

On the upside the water butt is full again

It is definitely the weather-they may be self pollinating but like french beans they need warmth -you will get beans eventually-just a matter of time
