Re: Watch out! It's still hanging around.

Ooooh I was going to ask how MKG got a bed that big into the house. And where he bought the bedding for it from. Then I realised he was talking mere gardening .....

Re: Summer's coming

If someone would switch off the easterly wind we might even see the end of spring and the start of summer here.

Re: RAIN !!

We had sleety rain yesterday with snow up on the hills; looks like more of the same today. What fun. As ina says, so much to do outside - on the allotments in my case.

Re: Oh dear...

Madam Blackbird does nest in the oddest of places. Have many stories of her causing havoc. I'm beginning to think that blackbirds are a bit like sheep - not very sensible. I'd say that your week is brewing to be "interesting" in many ways. Good luck with the cat and may the computer not be too expen...

Hiya from me too. You'll get round Windows 10 with enough practice. As to the rain - enough said. We've had a dry winter coming up to spring so it's a learning curve for us too.

Re: growing potatoes

I'd think that the cardboard would collapse when it gets wet? Potatoes do need a fair amount of water.

Re: How much space do I need?

But it's taken you a few years to get that far Odsox. You have to remember that Herbivore is just starting on the journey. You can't teach experience. That has to be learned on this growing lark. :lol:

Re: How much space do I need?

You are so right about the Jerusalem artichokes - and do be careful how you compost any remains as the blighters are like dandelions and docks, given to returning from next to nothing. Your first year is always experimental whilst you learn where the sun shines best (or not) and what the soil is rea...

Re: Self sufficientish in 2019

Hurrah - the daughter has agreed to amend the curtains to fit as she has a sewing machine and has done curtains before. Add to the list - need to do something about the hall carpet.
