Re: Richard's Veggie Patch

Hi Richard,fab-u-Lous, I have a couple of hours today I hope in the patch at home, but am on call for a Hospital, so no doubt will be in at some stage, so up early to see if I can get a bit done. You are very ahead would be my thinking! )like( Clucky xx

Re: Dust bath

Hi all, does anyone else use the ash from the log burner.? I fill up their holes that they dig around the garden and they love it .... When it's cold of course rather than hot embers! {rofwl} they would have a thing or two to tell me if I got that wrong I am sure {warn}

Re: Bills 2015 garden veggy diaries

Hi Bill, Mine are indoors but no heating so still relatively cool, but protected. Off to get some bags tomorrow, so watch this space! Things are certainly starting to grow nicely and my favourite ...

Re: Clucky's Veggie Patch

Dear LL, You are such a wise woman .... Thank you - seems so obvious about the sprouts ... I have a Daughter at home this week, so out and in it is ... They are looking better in larger pots. Great point about the rhubarb - no weeds yet, we are always about two weeks behind as nearly highest point i...

Re: Clucky's Veggie Patch

Thanks Bill, sewn some seeds indoors and have a glass link between the house and Annexe (was an old stable, converted into self contained space for Daughter) so will keep out there - have spent a good morning potting up sprouts, they look good although a few have one leaf going limp - wonder if they...

Re: Nice to see Ladybirds

Lots around the garden today although much, much cooler today than it has been so wonder if they will disappear and come back when it is warm again. I love seeing them, takes me right back to being a child when my Grandad used to tell me that the spots were the number of children they had to feed, s...

Re: Clucky's Veggie Patch

Well, I don't mind saying I feel quite smug! Up with the lark this morning, and what a morning. Warm and bright ... A very Happy Easter to you all. I walked the dog at six, let the chooks out and then cracked on with the veggie beds. Have been desperate to plant up the broad beans which have grown e...

Re: Flown to Rainbow Bridge

Ah, June, I shed a little tear when I read your post, I'm so sorry. I never realised how attached you can be before having chickens, but they are such lovely lovely birds with such different characters. What a lovely resting place, hugs to you {hug} xxx

Re: Clucky's Veggie Patch

So frustrating ..... Wanted to get out today, but sadly on call for a busy hospital and such a lot going on so no time to get outside .... Hoping the rest of the weekend will be a little more Q but ... I bet it won't! Desperate to get some more broad beans in, some early peas are coming along nicely...

Re: ?Broody Hen?

Hi ClareM, I had my first experience of a broody hen this year "Barbara" she was quite grumpy! I also work full time, and just made sure that I moved her when I could, but like you couldn't block the house, without upsetting the other six! I just made sure I spent a bit more time at the be...
