Alien food! And does he know that sprouts give you super powers? Yes, with my super powers I can clear a room in 5 seconds!  :D :ohmy: :D

Grow Your Own / Re: Farmyard Manure

I have never bought manure.  Round here, people who have stables are only too grateful for you to take it off your hands, they would be drowning in the stuff otherwise.   We get an occasional delivery from one stables, but you do need to rot that down for a few months before use.  There is another stables that lets us go and pack up our bags for free - they stack their manure according to age and we can get some well rotted stuff for immediate use there.
If I were you I would make some enquiries locally.
We also had a delivery of cow manure which was negotiated by one of our fellow allotmenteers.   Again I have stored it to rot down.

Garlic in today - not quite 275 cloves though....more like 30-40.

Also noticed that purple sprouting broccoli leaves were under attack and took netting off to find loads of caterpillars and eggs....in November. Picked off and sprayed.....Sprouts seemed ok.

Grow Your Own / Farmyard Manure

Hi All

I need to buy some Farmyard Manure from either B&Q or Homebase so I can mulch my fruit trees & currant bushes this weekend - which brands at a reasonable price are worth having or avoiding.

Thanks

Chatting on the Plot / Re: Feedback frenzy

I generally ignore the feedback spam, except in a particular pizza chain where I know that the staff members who get the most positive feedback get first call on the following weeks shifts. The staff are always great there and I don't mind giving them a booster.
Other than that I did have to give feedback when I had appalling service on more than one occasion at another restaurant chain. I told them I was never returning so they 'rewarded' me with a £5 voucher... They clearly don't read the feedback :(

We've had dogs (and cats, horses and ponies!) in our lives for most of our 51 years of marriage. I just couldn't imagine life without our four-legged companions
