Free at Last !


The broad beans are free at last and protected with windbreak material. It has been quite cool & windy today despite what the BBC website said. Yesterday was the first really warm day of the year. Posted by Hello

does the windbreak cover the broad beans as well as being a windbreak? will it deter flying insects ?

Hi its your mate Borris again!

Do you make your own compost or buy it? I always found making mine is best. Only problem is horse flies seem to like it and you get the odd bite.

How many hours ish a week do you spend at your place, it looks very well maintained.

Pam, Thanks for your comment. Some of the dimmer insects can't work out that all they have to do is fly in at the top,so they are repulsed rather than deterred. The badly motivated ones simply can't be bothered to fly all that way so they are deterred. All the others just do what they think is right for them at that time.

Borris, I make my own compost but find it is the dung which attracts the flies. I am mainly stung by nettles. I spend 5 minutes a week there maximum as I have set it up as a self regulating ecosystem.

Please give my regards to James.

The regards are sent.

Is it difficult to maintain one of these blogs? As I am the regular Northerner with my flat cap and whippets I don't want something to be difficult. Is it difficult?

PS James is out herding the flock.

Dear Mike
The windbreak idea is fantastic. I was just reviewing your sight with my old gardening chum Monty McMonnies and we were bowled over. Monty said he would never have though of such a neat idea. My other chum Kevin Sowerbutts was distraught at the pictures of shrivelled shard. You really ought to think carefully before publishing such distressing material.
keep up the good work
David
