Extremely rude of Grin. When we had a peregrine in the pylon near us all the rooks decamped to the next one in the line.

Took some cousins for a walk in the woods yesterday. Flowers at their absol ...

I think squash need above a certain temperature to germinate. Have you been able to give them that? I have trouble with them and courgettes most years for that reason.

Ours is very over natural. Some bits resemble a wood where things have self set, so we are working our way though them slowly-when I can get husband to do some work in the garden. One lawn is covered ...

I have never really got on with onion seed I am afraid. I have tried once or twice, but never came to anything. I find autumn sown sets are rather better for our conditions, but even they are not that ...

Yes, we did see that. I realised it was one of your orchards and it rather saddened me to see kids knocking the unripe apples down and kicking them around while their parents just sat and let them get ...

Sounds good. I am afraid I am not a fan of the slimy hoard as they get where I don't want them and eat things I don't want them to eat. Otherwise, our garden is fairly natural for the most part too. I ...

As either my ME has got worse, or I have long Covid after being ill in January, I am having to take gardening fairly slowly this year, and won't be trying to do so much. Taking it in two goes, I have ...
