Re: Coronavirus

I just feel the need to post something. I can't really speak to anyone and I know it's not really appropriate. Before I remarried, I had another relationship, which lasted 2 years or so. I sort of lived with him. Anyway, I received a phone call, Sunday morning, oddly enough from my boss, who lives ...

Re: Coronavirus

I spoke to my manager yesterday. She said I should be done in the first priority group as, even though I only work a few hours a week, I am a home care worker, so she's trying to get the registration done. Bring it on. I have to admit, that with the figures having risen so very far, so fast, here, I...

Re: Bloody rats!

Well done indeed! The cold snap last week brought rats out here too. Usually, I never see them. Now, they were out in the day foraging around. They've also tunnelled under the floor of the run, which has weldmesh under the slabs. My current batch of hens are still laying well although they're over 2...

Re: The Potting Shed

The advantage of the special (expensive) pots I bought is that you lift out the inner pot which has big square cut outs in the side. Then you can pick the potatoes you can see, leaving the others to grow rather than lifting them all. You can do the same thing by putting a single use carrier bag wit...

Re: The Potting Shed

That's pretty much what the potato sacks are, woven plastic, the ones they charge you a tenner for. No Lidl here so I'm guessing but it sounds about right. Yes, I used the potato growing sacks once too. I didn't have enough, so used the Lidl bags as well. The only difference I could see was the col...

Re: The Potting Shed

Arran Pilot is a simply beautiful first early, the sort of taste you can never buy in a shop. I used t9 grow them in my allotment and I did a few in pots this summer, which did well. I was planning on one raised bed for each variety but may have some spares if I stick to the spacing rules so the le...

Re: Coronavirus

Things are extremely grim over here now. An absolute explosion of cases. They've been tracking the genome sequence (is that right??) and discovered that what's been termed the "UK variant" is what's driving a lot of the surge as it seems to be much more easily spread, and also, now, they've found 3 ...
