Nice picture Buzzy. We saw a roe deer crossing the track we were going up yesterday. A doe, as there were no antlers. It stopped in the wood and watched us drive past. There are quite a lot of roe dee ...

We only had one short hail storm yesterday, not even enough to dampen the ground, but they are threatening us with short showers of anything at the moment.

Tried to get the frame for the basket so ...

All I got was something that asked for password, so yes, as it is tied in with an election in just over a months time, I would say get something up. She must have a friend who can knock up a website o ...

I think it has been a good year for both tree and other blossom this year. The flowers have been superb. It has been an early year for us in the south.

Most of my apple trees are now coming into fl ...

Sounds good Gz. We are expecting a few cold days; the house temperature overnight here has just dropped by about 5 C with no heating at night. Should be milder again by the end of the week, but still ...

Thanks for the pictures Cassandra. Sounds as if you have been busy. Hobart looks a lovely civilised city, even if it is catching up with the tourist trail in patches.

I like the sheep and dogs? on ...

Lovely apple blossom Bodger. Ours are just starting, as is the quince, but I don't think our trees quite constitute an 'orchard'.

As you say, all you need is a knife and perhaps some baler twine. ...

Good luck with your gate post and moving 'stuff' Gregotyn.

The AGM went quite well, although we didn't have too many people unfortunately. We had a representative of Grown in Britain came and gave ...

The so called 'Right to Roam' was the Rights of Way and Countryside Act, and only certain land became 'access' land. Even on that people have a lot of responsibilities, like keeping their dogs under c ...

Some sort of sprout suppression has been used for years. In the late 1950s, when we used to usually grow all out own potatoes in the UK, there was a crop failure and potatoes were allowed to be import ...

Congratulations Gregotyn, but if you are already doing that many hours, you are hardly part time.

Yes, Jam Lady, our charcoal is mainly sold for barbecues, but we will also sieve out grades for bl ...

I see Sgt. Colon, at least I think I do.

Dpack, you have a good sprouting record. Mine are coming up nicely now, but don't think I have that good a performance. There may still be a few to ...
