Has anyone successfully stopped a planning application before?

Have the ancient apple trees got Tree Preservation Orders on them?

Egg dilemma?

Fresh eggs keep for a minimum of three weeks. They can be frozen in convenient lots, but label them with the number or volume.

Of course chickens are cannibals! They are omnivores and bullies, sometimes, and will peck a fellow chicken to death if they perceive it is a weakling.

Why don't you hard boil them and pickle them. What a tasty treat.

I certainly would not add raw egg to a worm colony. Not sure why, but I wouldn't.

Just read the OP; you only have 10 to deal with. Hardly a problem. Custard or scrambled eggs for lunch.

Are they sold for planting or for cooking? If they are sold for cooking they may not shoot if they have been sprayed with a shoot retardant.

What would you do?

You buy it as a plant. It gets pruned down to the ground in Spring and then you get a display of stems of new growth in the Winter. Choose a variety that will give you a good colour, like Edd's example above. They look especially striking in the sun.

Loads of butterflies hibernating in the house this year. I've put them in the porch where it's cooler, but frost-free.

They sell those in the supermarket now labelled baby potatoes!

How do I get a Tree Preservation Removed?

Even if it is just scruffy woodland, you will have to apply for planning permission to turn it into a garden, I would imagine. Just like people who extend their gardens into agricultural land in all innocence and are then surprised when they have to return it to agricultural land when the Council catches up with them.

Wellies!

Got mine from Joules. Blue and white striped.

Also Rigger boots are good, with pull-up straps and steel toe-caps and fleecy insides.
