I thought that was the case with hay, but wasn't sure as it is not a thing I have ever had anything to do with. I might ask at the farm shop if I see the right person, as they are livestock farmers to ...

Unfortunately I seem to have been fed to the mosquitoes at the moment. The horse fly season seems to be over, and although the bites hurt, for some reason I didn't get much swelling. The mossies seem ...

I have noticed that the hay round our way has been going in green coloured, which means it dried well doesn't it Gregotyn?

We are still having dry weather but a bit muggy at the moment. Somehow th ...

I think Mike Nesmith was actually a musician, but the others were actors. I remember Mikey Dolenz in Circus Boy when I was very young, so he must be in his 70s now I would think. Davy Jones was a jock ...

Wasps can be a nuisance later in the year, but they do get rid of a lot of flies early on when they are feeding the young.

I think the Bowen technique is a pretty well known and respected one Gregotyn, but the treatment may have moved the problem from one side to the other. I hope it sorts itself out, and I assume you wil ...

We have a bucket of water up in the woods for birds and animals to drink from. Saw a squirrel one day, but mainly birds and insects. We have put a lump of wood in there so that anything that falls in ...

I agree Henry. I am hoping they don't become a problem otherwise we will have to see about more control. At present, with culling in other places around us, the roe deer are on the high side of accept ...

Your ramps are rather different from our wild garlic. For a start, wild garlic leaves are used rather than the bulbs. We have lots of it in the woods, and have found the only way to control it is by l ...

You may have a mouse family as semi-pets at the moment Dpack, but have you thought about when the children and their children have more children?

Went on the RFS walk, which was quite interesting. They have Chalara ash die back far worse than us, but the worst affected area was in a stand of almost pure ash in a valley which son says stays damp ...
