Sounds like a very suitable drying shed then. The drums sound interesting, but no idea where we could get them round here. I also don't want to have too many such things in the woods as I don't want a ...

I am always glad I live in the UK where we don't have very many nasty creatures. That makes me even more glad.

I wouldn't store firewood in sealed drums as even dry firewood contains some moisture and can start to produce mould or fungus. The best storage for it is a shed with good ventilation; open sides with ...

Glad you enjoyed your weekend. It would be good to go back with your friends, and if you were with them, flying wouldn't be so daunting. I don't mind the flying; as far as I am concerned it is just an ...

Well at least most of them made it Jam Lady, and you seem to have done your bit by keeping the other animals off the eggs.

Sean, that is rather sad, but I suppose sparrowhawks have to eat too. The ...

As long as you enjoy chopping firewood, that is the thing to do. Some people meditate; you chop firewood.

I have enough besom heads for the time being, so just have some handles to prepare, and th ...

That could be a very useful study, and one worth publishing if it works.

The only birds I have ever become really friendly with are robins. I suppose I move around too much, but robins will often ...

Dik was a robin wasn't he? Nice to know you have a new one. We had two outside the backdoor singing yesterday, but couldn't see them, so not sure whether they were having a territorial contest, or sin ...

It depends on how busy the road is as to how much of a disadvantage being close to it can be. If yours is a quiet country road, not too bad, if a busy major road, a real disadvantage.

With the old ...

Hope you have a good time at the show. It is a pity you will never have such a good vegetable garden, but you can at least grow some things, even if not the full range you could.

We were thinking ...

Sounds good Dpack. I have a courgette outside, and it is producing, but not as well as the one in the greenhouse, and it is rather later too. If the weather keeps up, both should give us a few for a b ...

Sounds as if you should have a good time Gregotyn. Blists Hill at Ironbridge and several of the other places there are worth while visiting, but sounds as if you have enough to keep you busy already. ...

Some funny things happen in these country places.

I read the blog Jam Lady. Very interesting. In the UK we tend to have sheep dog trials where the dogs and handlers compete against each oth ...

Your shows sound good Jam Lady. We don't have as many sheep dog trials here as we used to because the sheep still need a movement license after the last foot and mouth outbreak, which can make things ...
