Your photo is of an earwig. Probably the rooks or starlings are digging up the lawn to find food. Best to leave them to it for the winter then work on improving the lawn in the Spring

raw cider vinegar

I bought some cider vinegar from Aspels and it contained a 'vinegar mother.' I just keep topping up with strong cider as I use it. It's kept going for a couple of years so far.

Long Grass

Long grass should ideally be cut in perhaps July/August. When the seeds of wild flowers have matured and fallen. If you are going for a wild-flower area the grass should be raked off so the fertility of the patch is not increased.

If you go for the 'Well I told you so' option, be aware as they are not gardeners, they will blame you not the aspect. And what about the time and energy you waste.

Why not attach a ring to the wall and let them practice goal scoring!

If it's as shaded as you say it's pretty well impossible. Is it a gardener who suggested it?

Water Butt Cleaning

Posted: 30/10/2015 at 01:01
Snap, DyersEnd. The water in a couple of the butts is several year's old, although fresh has also been added. Still beautifully clear and non-smelly.

The secret is to keep it well-covered at all times.

If you want to scrub a butt, empty and put on its side then it's easy.
