An interesting article Jam Lady, thanks for posting. It seems a very good idea to move the car parking away from the grove, and it looks as if they might have raised walkways in some areas too. Must b ...

Went to our usual place looking for bee orchids. Lots of pyramid, and found rock rose and milkwort, but no bee orchids. Anyone know if they are late this year, or is it a bad year for them?

Repeatedly going over the same ground can cause a problem I would agree, but Ted Green does sometimes take things to extremes. I was at a meeting once where nobody would pick up his argument, so he ca ...

Are you talking about oak processionary moth? They have become a menace in London and although they don't think they can eradicate them, they are trying to minimise them because of the health risk.

That was part of an experiment to see if squirrels could learn how to negotiate an obstacle course. You will be glad to know that it takes a long time for a squirrel to learn it, so if you change thin ...

Sounds as if you have been busy Cassandra, even if you have been mainly 'staying in'. Do the cats work as a tag team, or is Poppet, as seems to be the case from you FB posts the boss? If she is, it sh ...

I have seen something about this before. Cows love tree bark; we cut some hedging once and left it within reach of some cows and came back to find it virtually stripped.

This area would traditiona ...

One of the baby blue tits was near the top of the tube on Thursday and hogging all the food. Hopefully the others did get a look in. Think they will soon be out. I like seeing the baby wrens in the wo ...

Son has a cat called Molly or Molly Mog, but she is also called Miss Furry Paws. Not sure why as her legs and feet are a lot less furry than the rest of her so she looks as if she is wearing boots.

Love the laid back cat Henry!

Not sure there is any real way to stop squirrels except an air gun pellet in the head, but Vasline might upset them a bit. I didn't realise they could climb smooth met ...

Another problem with your idea about regular sized chucks of wood is that we don't use 'sawn' timber. Ours is usually the thinner stuff or very chunky stuff rough split that is no good for firewood. S ...

That blackboard come abacus sounds a good idea Gregotyn, but might the abacus be easier to use if the balls were on wire, not string?

One problem with the charcoal process is that everything stays ...

Might be worth a try, but if you have anything else like peppers or courgettes, they might be more worthwhile than peas.
