Rowland, in the back garden, it's mostly hawks and owls, but they are quite frequent visitors!  We tend to see or hear them on a daily basis, and they do hunt and nest right here, we usually have a hawk nest in our trees, or the neighbors, every year.

The foxes and coyotes mostly keep the general area outside our fence vermin-free (which also keeps the area INSIDE our fence vermin-free!  :D

Chatting on the Plot / winter break
« Last post by rowlandwells on November 29, 2021, 14:33 »
I always term these winter months a winter break when gardeners take a back seat and with next year in mind ordering seed and other things catching up on what we could be achievable on the plot next gardening season and of cause asking fellow gardeners on this site for advise I always log any advise that I've been told in my garden diary to look back on well I think ones never to old to learn new tricks of the trade :D

I also tend to read back issues in  garden mags some are worth a read some are more use for lighting the log
burner when I look out the window in my computer room at the snow covered  frozen ground that lays dormant till  spring when the days start to get brighter and things start to wake up after that long cold winter months

then come spring we can't wait to get started after being locked in the house in those dark cold days  dusting of the cobwebs in the potting shed and staring to sow seeds so that old chair that's been so much used through those dark cold winter months is now redundant and the log fire that has brought comfort and warmth is being lit les often as the weather warms up through the spring days

so I'm day dreaming of those many hours spent on the plot in those warm summer days this year sitting under a tree with a nice cold drink wouldn't need to go to far to get  some ice in you drink now :lol:

A smattering of snow last night and a proper hard frost this morning. Still bitterly cold out, pond is still frozen over in the garden.

I could have kicked myself when it froze up on Saturday I'm just concerned when it thaws it mite burst the pipe then I will need to turn of all the water to the  house to repair the pipe
Pipes burst when they freeze - but you only notice it when they thaw out. Give it a look over if it's not bulging and there's no obvious sign of a split hopefully you'll be ok. I've never had a tap go, normally it's the pipe, even more so now given how thin the pipe wall has become.

the mind boggles I hope you put a good compensation claim in and of cause there are roofers and then there are roofers :D I really hope you get all this sorted out very soon as we could be in for some more stormy weather that won't help matters keep us informed of progress  with the roof and what sort of job they make of it  :unsure:

talking of water leeks I went  round and the other day and turned of all the greenhouse taps including the poly tunnel then put frost proofing  on all the pipes I left one tap not fully covered outside because I use that to top up the fish pond and I could have kicked myself when it froze up on Saturday I'm just concerned when it thaws it mite burst the pipe then I will need to turn of all the water to the  house to repair the pipe
that someone ells in the house won't be very pleased  >:(
