They will probably ripen off the plant, in the house, if it is impractical to take the plants indoors.

I would go with the builders. If you place the greenhouse on earth it will get muddy when you water, unless you put paving slabs down, which comes to the same thing as a concrete base, but with more hidey-holes for slugs.

Moles in my compost bins.

Round here mole catchers are only paid by results, though they are usually dealing with canny farmers; that's why the 'blowing them up in the tunnels' method (moles, not farmers or mole catchers) failed to attract many customers.

Incidentally, has anybody seen a mole run above ground? They go very, very fast!

You may have a mole in the garden, but it definitely sounds like rats in the compost.

Double trouble!

Are you absolutely sure they are not rats? Moles are usually solitary except in the mating season.

Is it time to feed my Acer Shirasawanum Jordan to my woodburner?

No, just trim it so that it fits in with the proportions of the rest of the tree. I think it is a bit drastic to cut the whole branch out. It's not clear what shape of tree you are aiming for. Bush or tree. Does the tree need a leader?

Just out of interest, how much did you pay for the bird food? I usually buy a large bag of peanuts from the local farmer's co-op.

So you spent ??2.75 to avoid paying ??2.75? Admittedly you did get a bag of bulbs that you didn't mean to buy otherwise!

It only needs to be on the pond until all the leaves have fallen.
