Re: Pen floor advice

We discovered a mole digging up the inside of the run yesterday. :-( The end sections are concrete slabs and the middle section is just bare soil. Anyhow, we have now put slabs down in the middle section, with a layer of thick rubber sheeting on top, as their feeders are in that part and I don't wa...

Re: Drought conditions

The repair people called to say that they can't get here until tomorrow. They've been called to emergencies at a couple of dairy farms that have been left with no water supply, which is fair enough. At least I don't have a herd of thirsty cattle, and a milking parlour that needs keeping clean! Gosh,...

Re: Drought conditions

Aw, she's lovely, Rick! Now, I have NO water! :roll: :roll: Yesterday morning, I went to the garage for something, and AAarghh!!! Water all over the floor???!! There's a slight leak where the pipe from the pressure vessel meets the pipe from the well! Yes, talk of the devil - the fitting is leaking!...

Re: Drought conditions

If your water is extremely soft, LadyA, then it's the opposite of alkaline and will have a very low Ph. I bet you can grow lots of ericaceous, peat-loving plants that could only exist in pots in our chalky garden! Ah yes. I do remember (vaguely!) that when we got the water tested years ago, they re...

Re: Drought conditions

Why can't you use the softened water on the garden, Marigold? What's in the water softener? The area I'm in is interesting, in that my water is extremely soft (alkaline?) so much so that, although nothing ever gets scale build up on it (which is good), the alkaline water over years, gradually eats t...

Re: Drought conditions

wind got up, it clouded over then ... zilch! Were it not for all growing things and animal life I'd be 100% happy with the weather! That keeps happening here! And it's doubly annoying, because when the air pressure/weather is changing like that, I get headaches. So I've had a few headaches, which I...

Re: Drought conditions

I haven't mowed since the beginning of June! Nothing is growing. Usually, this time of year, I would have to mow at least once, and sometimes twice, a week! There are severe water restrictions all over the country, with night time shut offs, and talk of having to do rolling shut offs during the day ...

But was the recipient there to receive it Lady A? Or was it left with the receptionist ...
Well that I don't know! And I did wonder what would happen if the recipient wasn't there! Can just imagine the drone hovering uncertainly on the doorstep! :lol:
