    Thanks CTC. Those links will make for some interesting reading when I winter comes. :D

    Can I echo the bit about joining in? There's no need to commit to post regularly, but if you're out there, reading, it would be great to hear from you, especially in parts of the country we don't cover. :)

  • Ohh a shiny new thread, which appears to have stretched somewhat on my screen :D

    Wet and windy here today. Brother and family arrived last night, and have gone off to Bury St Ed's for a couple of hours so house currently quiet.

    Sorry for your sad news alfie and Rozee :(:(

    Afraid I have no suggestions for you on the back of a used £10 note Dave - as I don't even understand the question, but am happy to be 'educated' as you update us all. :o

    Computer wars are ongoing in the BD household. :(:( Put the new HDD in my lappy, installed all 157 Windows updates, all going well.....turned lappy on the next morning and it's not at all happy - got the 'black screen of death' first thought it was a dodgy hdd, but now probably an issue with drivers. So am gathering my energy to resume the battle next week. If the worst comes to the worst I can always put the old HDD in, but don't like to be beaten by the bloomin' thing.......
    It is a good idea to be alone in a garden at dawn or dark so that all its shy presences may haunt you and possess you in a reverie of suspended thought.

    It's the problem of having surplus sub-soil and stones if we create a new soak-away with our building rubble. We shall then be left with a pile of earth and rock that no one will want, excavated from the big hole we'll make.:(

    Our predecessors solved this sort of problem by building long barrows. Having just got rid of these, I am not keen to make another!

    We think we've solved the problem of the substantial leak from the temporary new roof. Big hole we couldn't see last night. :)

    Wouldn't barrows with trees have been good down dog end?

    We have a barrow. :(. Pita. It blocks view to top end of field and gets all boggy behind it.

    Shiny new thread, thank you for keeping this going CTC. Sorry I am only just posting photos. My garden is a very funny shape so I can't even describe it, there are also different levels but here are a few shots. It currently needs a very good tidy up and I'm about to start some projects so these are photos from various times:

    I'm going to try a test with one because I'm trying Flickr for the first time!

    Clearly flickr doesn't like me and I can't copy links from photobucket for some reason. Grrrr.

    Quiet day.

    All achieved was foundinrates dug over about three or four metres of bed.

    Somethings better than nothing right? :)

    Tomorrow has to be electric fencing moving day. I hate setting up electric fencing.

    Sorry guys I cannot work out Flickr and for some reason since doing an update on my iPad the ability to copy links has gone for some strange reason. I will keep trying.

    We've already filled-in the non-wet pond and planted trees at the Dog End. We also added more stuff about 6 weeks ago when we did the caravan hard standing, so that area's pretty full! :o

    The good news is that neighbour's landlady has family with an ability to take the surplus. She's being ultra-helpful now. :)'
