Anyone else use freecycle/trash nothing?

I've tried to give things away on Freestyle but it would have cost me to give!...


Offered a shed and said it would need collecting..all the responses asked me to deliver, same with a flat screen TV...I gave up.......I now have a car boot and if stuff isn't sold by lunch time, throw things in for free if people show an interest in an item...

GWRS, enjoy your jollies. You'll no doubt come back to a lush plot with all the veg romping away......

Beetroot

I'm starting more stuff in modules this year. It's a learning curve put means there's stuff to plant out when other vegs are harvested.


Beetroot me thinks is an under rated veg, most have only eaten it pickled. I tend to steam it and make a cheese sauce but will now try roasting or eat with a salad.

What is your weather like?

Hot and dry here in the NW, never thought the ground would ever dry out after the floods in the winter.

Fences and covenants...

Posted: 08/06/2016 at 22:10

Thing is I didn't know. I did put up a trellis in front of the high fence and replanted that side of the garden with stuff which liked the conditions. There is a gap behind and the trellis can easily be taken down. 


Think that will be the answer to their Q. 

Fences and covenants...

I don't want to start a fight with the neighbour, I would be happy just to put it all behind me. 


The issue has been raised by the purchaser. They are asking if any of the covenants have been broken, unknowingly that one has...

Is there anything I can do now?


I only discovered the covenant because I'm selling my property. Am I in the wrong for allowing him to put it up. I did complain to the council at the time and they supported him. I may still have the e-mails.

Several years ago the neighbour replaced the dividing fence. At the time I wasn't happy about the height. Said neighbour said there was nothing I could do as legally he was entitled to build it up to 6 ft.


I've just discovered there is a covenant limiting the height to 3ft unles a written agreement is reached. As we didn't sign anything, has he illegally put up the fence at a height of 6ft.

Sharpening tools...

Gives me something to mull over, think I have some files but no clamp. The 6 in 1 tool sounds a good idea and I'll look on youtube to see if there are any links giving a demonstration.


Thanks for all the replies. 


Don't get to Stockton as often now Frank.
