All my root crops except parsnips and salsify, which were old seed are growing, but quite slowly. I am watering every couple of days, but doesn't seem to be the same as rain. The potatoes have been pr ...

Glad you had a good time at the show Gregotyn. I think people are being wary about spending money at the moment as things are going up in price-imports are more expensive because of the devaluation of ...

Sorry to hear about your sting Buzzy. There are some colonies that do take exception to people near them.

Odd how you get loads of oak apples in some places and very few in others. Perhaps the was ...

Had a productive day in the woods yesterday. Did 20 more bags of charcoal, emptied the small kiln, found some bean sticks and plant stakes and got half load of firewood on the truck for delivery this ...

Sounds as if you have been busy Cassandra. That hat is lovely. I think we would call that a tam o' shanter. Your spinning has come on really well if that is hand spun.

We ran a course on Basic Woo ...

That bit of garden looks lovely Jam Lady. It would look even better with English bluebells, but I suppose you can't get them. Ours have been lovely this year. They kept their slightly purpley royal bl ...

Hope you find somewhere to sleep all right for the show Gregotyn. There must be some secluded animal stall under cover if all else fails. You might just get an e-mail in time if they will be available ...

Sorry I don't know the answer, but before getting an auger consider your soil. The flints in ours make them very difficult to use.

Fun when you are renovating an older house and you have to get imperial and metric bits to fit. I believe there are still adaptors available to get from one to the other, so use the BS for most of it ...

One thing to check is that the company is licenced. You can ask to see a copy, and they should also give you a ticket to say that you have disposed of the stuff to them. Whatever you do, make sure you ...

We also have someone doing chainsaw carving in a layby not too far from us Gregotyn. The Tools for Africa organisation works round here too, and one of the Dorset Coppice Group members keeps an eye on ...

Lovely orchid Buzzy. Ours have been beautiful this year, although they are starting to go over now. I haven't seen any very pale ones, but they do range in colour from pink to purple. A couple of year ...

It depends on how it is stored. If you want to keep it as long as possible, leave it completely uncut and in a cool slightly damp place. You might get some spalting (fungus patterns in the wood) but a ...
