No, and they are not kept as pets very much either, so no chance of escapees. There are some good colonies of parakeets in odd places in the UK and they come from Australia I think, so they must be es ...

I don't remember anything as complicated as that as a giveaway, but when I was getting that sort of thing plastic was a fairly new sort of thing. I do remember Frosties giving tokens that you exchange ...

That looks good Jam Lady. We can't grow a lot of those things as the climate here is generally less extreme than yours with cooler summers and milder winters on the whole. I don't know that we could g ...

I think it is too cold for them here Dpack, but as you say, they have to eat a lot for their size to keep going at that rate. I don't think I have ever seen one in real life, but they look beautiful o ...

Is that globe or Jerusalem Jam Lady? I have grown both, but struggle with globe here as they have trouble surviving the winter. Not sure if it is just too cold or too wet or both. Jerusalem grow well ...

Most of them are pretty flimsy, so they are being used to stoke the kiln. We are only keeping the good ones, and hops to put a good length into the store. At present I have 4 along one edge to keep th ...

Some varieties can end up cycling to every other year. Looks as if our quince may be doing that. We didn't have any problems at blossom time, but unless they are hiding, can't see may fruits this year ...

That is one advantage of clay, as long as it doesn't get too dry and crack up. I remember the house we lived in when I was a child had clay, and the garden produced lovely roses. Dad used to slab up t ...

I would suggest mesh over the vents too if it reoccurs. My bedroom window when I was a child had wire mesh over it as a neighbours cat used to come in, and Mum was terrified of cats generally, and tha ...

Have a good time Gregotyn. Going at a quiet time is my choice too. I have never liked crowds.

Hopefully the rain yesterday will have brought on my vegetables better than the watering I was giving ...

I agree with you Dpack, but not as bad as the sort that fall apart in no time. Until we start making that sort of thing out of wood or perhaps china again, and even that will have a carbon footprint i ...

Went out with the dormouse survey people yesterday and found 3 summer nests in the tubes, up from 1. Also one was occupied, but the occupant legged it when it heard someone approach. They just saw the ...

I don't seem to have a lot of luck with carrots. Have had to reseed the bed and a few of the new ones just starting. It is raining this morning, so that will help them.

I had to thin the chard the ...
