Dove, better, maybe to avoid mention of glasses, full or empty!

To cut everything down, or leave.

Hi Logan, like all conversations between friends the subject matter can twist and turn in all directions. Go with the flow!

Maybe the thread will return to the original subject, maybe it won't.

Mike, did you bin your hard drive with your computer? It is best to keep it or destroy it completely by a physical method (maybe involving a hammer) to ensure nobody has access to your data such as passwords.

Little Oak Tree

I would think almost everybody on this forum has grown an oak tree from an acorn picked up on a walk. They must be the easiest of all the big seeds to germinate. Many of them germinate from acorns buried by birds or squirrels for their winter food.

Your best bet is to liberate it from the pot in your garden or a local park or somewhere it can grow to full height.

Yes, it is a method of telling if Cox's Orange Pippin is ripe. Don't know any other apple that does it so well.

Apple detritus

Blackbirds feed off the ground as do robins. We have a lot in the garden at the moment; probably migratory from Scandinavia.

I chucked down the last of my sweetcorn and the birds devoured those too.

Either in the compost or if you have a suitable hard surface spread them out for the blackbirds, and fieldfares to pick over. When they have finished with them sweep them up for the compost heap.

In the Spring.

Would you buy a smallholding?

I've seen it happen many times. People buy into their dreams with a bit of land when they retire. The land they have is too much as they grow older, but too little for any neighbouring farmer to rent or take a crop of hay off. They have then added the worry of the land and what to do with it.

As my OH and I get older the upkeep of our big garden in a very rural setting is becoming onerous. We are seriously thinking about moving to where there is a nearby station, shops, bus route and hospital for when we can't drive. Horrible, getting old isn't it?
