Good advice, Mark. Even well-seasoned hardwood will produce tar, though.

Good News for Mike

Wonderful news, Mike. You must be so relieved.

The only advice you need to give to anybody that you give wood to must sweep their chimney regularly. Softwoods are not as greatly admired for giving heat as hardwoods are, but if they are cheap enough or free, that's a different matter.

If you stack the wood correctly it will dry out well. Remember to cut the wood in lengths to suit your woodburner. You will save yourself so much work if the logs are the correct length.

If you don't intend to use the shreddings in the garden, what do you intend to do with them? Being acidic can be useful, round acid-loving plants, and for paths, perhaps.

If it moves quickly it is usually a goodie. If it moves slowly it is usually a baddie.

Sounds like rats.

Edging my lawn - what to do with the cuts?!

Or you can put the off-cuts in an old plastic sack; seal it and leave it to rot down for six months and you will have some loam.

What is this plant?

Can you describe the flower? If it seeds freely, what does the seed pod look like?

I suspect a weed.

When you can see the stalk starting to come away from the fruit. And the smell.............

Also there is no need to remove leaves to speed up the ripening of tomatoes. It doesn't.
