I hope it isn't too late for roots, as I haven't got mine in yet. A combination of replacing the raised beds and time. No, not sure what that is Sgt. Colon, but definitely not a parsnip. Don't worry, ...

Perhaps it might be an idea to charge her for the muck collection, or offer her the continuing arrangement if she collects the muck. If she gets it all for free and then charges other people, you are ...

You have some very odd tastes Dpack. They are odd in that it still isn't really known if they are animal or vegetable aren't they? They can move as I understand, but aren't considered to be anima ...

I quite like mice outside, and the wood mice we get in the woods are lovely, but not indoors. I found 2 huge snails in the compost heap yesterday, so squashed them and left the remains for the attenda ...

Glad you had a good time Gregotyn. I am afraid I won't tolerate food throwing as it is messy and a waste, but then I do have my moments as a grumpy old woman.

We are starting to get the summer ...

Depends on how long it last, and having had to use the bucket method once when I was a child, it is over rated, believe me. We had a sudden storm and the 'concrete' out the back of the house as we cal ...

As long as it stays there. If you see any in your allotment, if the stem is thick enough, cut it off, use a wire to break the internal compartments and pour neat roundup down the stem. Otherwise spray ...

Possibly a little extreme for slugs. I have some rather dirty fleece I might try as a slug deterrent as it seems to be a non- poison way to go. I usually use a combination of beer traps and old copper ...
