Bit offputting when you have made enough to feed the 5000 and only a dozen turn up Jam Lady. Still as you say, you tried, and it sounds as if everyone did very well. Your selection looks good, althoug ...

Sounds good Cassandra. Don't leave the rose petals too long in water as I used to try to make perfume with them as a child, and when left too long they started to rot and stank. Never did make perfume ...

You are right Gregotyn, I haven't been very far north in winter, and not that often in summer. We tend to stay along the south coast, although we have ventured to the midlands and even into Wales on o ...

That sounds pretty cold to us Jam Lady. Where we are it tends to get a bit below freezing point sometimes, but by no means all winter. We are more likely to get rain than snow and mud is our big probl ...

We had one day where it snowed most of the day then cleared over late afternoon, so froze overnight, then it was about freezing all day yesterday. Trying to pack log sacks with attached frozen on snow ...

I have never come across those Jam Lady, not by that name anyway. Perhaps Cassandra has in her travels, as I think she was in NZ for a time.

We had snow most of yesterday but only a light sprinkli ...

You have fairly stable weather then. We woke up to snow this morning and that is quite unusual for us. It is still snowing, so work could be a bit delayed until son gets in, or has to be collected, as ...

I was a bit worried about you when I heard it was going to snow where you are, especially as you were a bit nervous about the night driving Gregotyn. Very kind of them to offer the lift, and worth tak ...

Yes, I forgot they stay quite bushy at the bottom if they are on the outside. You seem to have got the right idea about preservative too.

You seem to have had rather a bad day. Think part of the t ...

As you say Gregotyn, the trees are too close together for growing on, but must have been a good shelter belt when they were young. May be a bit open at the bottom now. If they are Norway spruce you ma ...

There do seem to be a lot of edible ones there Jam Lady. Making wooden candle holders is quite a popular thing to do with logs too. We haven't made any yet; the sawn tea light holder we made ende ...

Hope all goes well for you Cassandra. Look forward to hearing from you again. Pity about the apricot branch, but they always seem to shed when they are well laden.

Yesterday we had a hare settled ...

I did try them once. We don't do any shows around this time of year now, but when we did I did have a few 'yule logs' for sale. I also had wood shavings in packets as 'rocking horse droppings'. Sadly ...

It is a good thing to plant more trees than you fell Gregotyn, and that is what is done in forestry generally in the UK. When plantation is felled for timber it has to be either replanted of natural r ...

The aim with wood is to have as little waste as possible. I know there is a place round our way where they produce horse bedding. They take in a tree and put it through a sort of giant pencil sharpene ...
