Most of them burn fairly well for the first few times bit they can get very messy and irregularly shaped, which makes them a bit dangerous to burn. This year we decided to r...

I am a big "No dig" fan myself.

Why do all of the hard work when the micro organisms and worms can do it for you? You might be left with a few fiberous stalks next spring, these can be compsted if they get in the way.

Sit back and relax!

Cheers

older tips

Some ideas from days gone by. 18: Sheets were given a new lease of life when cut in two; the unworn sides were then sewn back together. When these wore out they were cut up and used as napkins. Then eventually they would be used for cleaning cloths. 19: Flour bags were sewn together to make handy s...

where was I?

I remember now, we were talking about dogs I think. Here are a couple of tips with the amended numbering 16: Dogs and cats shed their coats constantly and the hairs can be a real pain. Try wetting a rubber glove and brushing the animal, a lot of the loose hair will collect on it. Rubbing with a rubb...

town

Thanks for the great answers! You have some very good points. We don't have much public transport here (a couple of buses a day run through) so I can't see a shuttle bus working.
