Dik was a robin wasn't he? Nice to know you have a new one. We had two outside the backdoor singing yesterday, but couldn't see them, so not sure whether they were having a territorial contest, or sin ...

It depends on how busy the road is as to how much of a disadvantage being close to it can be. If yours is a quiet country road, not too bad, if a busy major road, a real disadvantage.

Hope you have a good time at the show. It is a pity you will never have such a good vegetable garden, but you can at least grow some things, even if not the full range you could.

We were thinking ...

Sounds good Dpack. I have a courgette outside, and it is producing, but not as well as the one in the greenhouse, and it is rather later too. If the weather keeps up, both should give us a few for a b ...

Sounds as if you should have a good time Gregotyn. Blists Hill at Ironbridge and several of the other places there are worth while visiting, but sounds as if you have enough to keep you busy already. ...

Some funny things happen in these country places.

I read the blog Jam Lady. Very interesting. In the UK we tend to have sheep dog trials where the dogs and handlers compete against each oth ...

Your shows sound good Jam Lady. We don't have as many sheep dog trials here as we used to because the sheep still need a movement license after the last foot and mouth outbreak, which can make things ...

Yes, I think I need to do that this year. Things don't seem too bad, just mildew on the courgettes and some mould on the grapes. I think I need to spend more time on the greenhouse, but time and energ ...

I think I might try some tomatoes again next year, as the greenhouse has rested from them for several years. Glad you are getting some crop off yours Dpack.

Doesn't seem to have come up Ty Gwyn.

Sadly, most hotels do charge extra for singles Gregotyn. Not fair in some ways, but they do have to deal with 2 rooms. Could you try another hotel that is more ...

It looks an interesting place, and on passing Ludlow once it looked a nice place to visit. Perhaps we might have a holiday in that part of the world some time. Hope you have a good time.

Finding out how to do things, then telling them a better way is even more fun!

I hope you have a good time with your friend. Is that Acton Scott that has appeared on TV a few times? It looks a ...

You can let British charcoal run down between sessions as it perks up again pretty quickly when extra added. I agree about a full hog roast, but the people I know that do this tend to use either a mix ...

We never had a system like that, but I helped Mum sometimes with the wringer which was used on the back porch which had 2 open sides. No washing machine at that time. Once Mum got a twin tub, it was e ...

That looks a good festival Jam Lady. You certainly make a lot of your holidays.

I am afraid that the niceties of tack for ploughing are not a thing I notice Ty Gwyn but interesting that there is s ...
