Re: Uses for wooden ice lolly sticks please?

Plant labels, kindling, model making, more ice lollies (make your own), small paint stirrers, diving boards for mice, budgie ski's........ :-) Giggling at the diving boards and budgie ski's! I was thinking more in the line of something for the garden (don't say a miniature fence, Lol) You know, bes...

Re: Homeschooling aswell as going to school question

I suppose you're right Merry. Broadening rather than reinforcing is better in the long run. And thankyou everybody for your advice and ideas. It's all very much appreciated!

Uses for wooden ice lolly sticks please?

I've been saving up loads of used ice lolly sticks and now the jar is full! I kept them because I thought they might come in useful for something. :roll: But now I want to make use of them, I can't think what to do with them. I don't need any for putting plant types on. Any ideas please?

Re: strawberries in hanging baskets?

Tru&Ad, I never would have thought of growing peas in hanging baskets. What type of container do you use for this?

permaculture and forest gardening

I've been looking up on the net lately on permaculture and forest gardening. I am so excited about the idea of transforming my garden this way. I've recently bought some books and have ordered some more. I was just wondering if anyone else is using either or both of these systems in their gardens, a...

Thomzo, do you have any pics of your lampshade/chicken wire creations? Sounds brilliant!

Re: Homeschooling aswell as going to school question

Dont get me wrong..... I wasn't planning on not letting my child have a life of play and discovery. I already try to do most of the above. It's just that this particular child of mine has a pretty short interest span and to prevent him getting behind in school, I thought I may be able to help his pr...

Re: rotary line or washing line?

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone! Although a rotary would be more compact and take up less space, I think maybe the drying time would be quicker on my standard line from what I've read on some of your comments. Plus I haven't a clue where I would put one, now that I understand a rotary would ...

Re: strawberries in hanging baskets?

Oh that's great news! Slugs are definitely another concern so this will be great. What size baskets do you think? And are there better types of strawberries for hanging baskets than others?
P.s. I love the idea of the pop bottle lids!

strawberries in hanging baskets?

Is it possible to grow strawberries in hanging baskets? Or anything else where the neighbours cats won't be able to get to them?

rotary line or washing line?

I'm trying to stop using the dryer (which is going to be tough considering I have 5 kids, but I digress) I have a long washing line that runs all the way down my garden, but I want to plant some fruit trees so was thinking about taking it down and getting one of those rotary thingsies to make more s...

Homeschooling aswell as going to school question

My 5 year old goes to school full time in September. I love the thought of homeschooling but I also have 2 younger ones aswell and having him home all day aswell as looking after the other two is very hard work. Plus when he's at home he can be very naughty, which is a phase I'm hoping will subside ...
