It's not the caterpillars that I'm battling...but myriad of teeny tiny snails hiding amongst the veg foliage. Mind you...they do squash exceedingly easily.

They take on a life of their own!


You're right about that! Bloomin' things have taken over the greenhouse and also have gone mental in the raised bed. Can't see any of the other poor little ve ...

Thank you for the tip about not putting them on the compost heap. Also, didn't know that you could freeze them - thank you.

We've been eating them raw at the moment, as they're ripening only ...

I've raised a few in the past. They were one of the most friendly birds I've come across. Gentle and calm. Can't comment on how they taste though.

I usually keep my growers separate (but within sight of) my older hens until the growers are at least 12 weeks. At that age they are more able to stick up for themselves a little and can survive an ...

I was just looking at last nights temps and Bournemouth Airport was -3 C!

Blimey! Didn't realise that. Which website are you looking at? I've given up on Metcheck and Accuweather - they diff ...

Well, I planted the half of the cosmos yesterday - (no will power!)...but covered them up with a bit of fleece. However, it wasn't frosty at all last night in my garden, so all is well. I think I'l ...
