Re: Films

Following your comments Sandy I think I will skip any future attempt to survive watching Alien: Covenant. I had a similar disaster watching The Mummy starring Mr Cruise, could have been so good but it turned into just another "Zombie" movie before paving the way for the follow up film, whi...

Wine making

Is anyone out there in possession of a good rhubarb wine recipe??

If you are, could you pass it on? If it is Grandma's secret recipe, PM it to me and I promise not to tell your Grandma that you have shared a family treasure :-D

Thanks

Insect control

We use various things to control insects etc. Here are few: Soap Spray - for mites, aphids, whiteflies, most beetles and other leaf eaters - mix a small amount of washing up liquid with water and spray all the infected areas early morning or late evening, never when it is hot and sunny. It coats the...

Re: Max - Our rescued Street Dog

How is Max getting on, Trev? Sorry for taking so long to reply Gwenoakes. You would not know there was anything wrong with him unless you knew him! He bounces around for his morning walk (a much shorter one now though) then on returning he happily digs his hole deeper and wider before curling up in...

Re: Frog spawn thread

Chickens love frog taddies, NoM! my girls cleared a pond, and ate most of the adults too We had a right shock last year when we first started keeping chickens...we saw one had caught a frog in the garden and was quite happily eating it! So much for chickens being cute feathery and loveable! Illusio...

It is a constant battle to keep our chickens off the...

Re: How does your garden grow?

Pulled another load of rhubarb today but the stems are beginning to grow rather slim so cleared the soil from around the crowns again to see if that will help. Strange thing though our peas have grown to twice the height as last year lots of pods though so fingers crossed for a bumper crop as nothin...
