That is one advantage of clay, as long as it doesn't get too dry and crack up. I remember the house we lived in when I was a child had clay, and the garden produced lovely roses. Dad used to slab up t ...

I would suggest mesh over the vents too if it reoccurs. My bedroom window when I was a child had wire mesh over it as a neighbours cat used to come in, and Mum was terrified of cats generally, and tha ...

Have a good time Gregotyn. Going at a quiet time is my choice too. I have never liked crowds.

Hopefully the rain yesterday will have brought on my vegetables better than the watering I was giving ...

I agree with you Dpack, but not as bad as the sort that fall apart in no time. Until we start making that sort of thing out of wood or perhaps china again, and even that will have a carbon footprint i ...

Went out with the dormouse survey people yesterday and found 3 summer nests in the tubes, up from 1. Also one was occupied, but the occupant legged it when it heard someone approach. They just saw the ...

Pity about the cherries. I have had some local ones, and they were beautiful. Their apricots should be ready, but not likely to see them, so will miss another year sadly. Looking forward to the start ...

I don't seem to have a lot of luck with carrots. Have had to reseed the bed and a few of the new ones just starting. It is raining this morning, so that will help them.

I had to thin the chard the ...

Got another couple of courgettes from the greenhouse yesterday, and looks as if they will keep coming now. One male flower on the outside ones so far, and a couple of tiny squashes in the greenhouse s ...

Seems as if you have plenty mapped out for your retirement, which can only be a good thing. Is there any way of doing something about the tree?

Yes, a good view Shane. There was a programme on TV over the last few days where they said 'lovely to see a buzzard' and showed a picture of a red kite soaring.
