The Bible tells us the length of Noah’s Ark was 300 cubits, its width 50 cubits, and its height 30 cubits.
However the cubit varies; Hebrew 17.5in, Egyptian 17.6in, Babylonian Long 19.8in, Hebrew Long 20.4in and Egyptian Long 20.6in. I don’t have a figure for the Berkshire cubit.

I agree move them now. If you have a place that mimics deciduous woodland that would be ideal, sunny in the Spring but shaded later in the year, and if you can add some leafmould and bonemeal that would help.

I've planted potatoes in the polytunnel and serviced the mower. Most of the veg beds are ready to go or waiting my March manure delivery. Until I got rained off this afternoon I was repairing a cold frame. 'Dear Diary' says I should switch on the propagator and start sowing at the end of this week, ...

Nice to get something productive done this morning despite a cold I can't shake off. Planted 12 Rocket potatoes under polytunnel cloche. Only 10° in there today compared with the pleasant 18° when I was preparing the bed yesterday.
We wind our Scottish friends up about neeps quite regularly, we only grow swedes and they definitely call them turnips or neeps. We love cranachan too, didn't realise it was the sweet to follow haggis, good reason to have a supply of frozen raspberries.

I agree OH, the medical profession have made a rod for their own backs in two ways. They've created a culture that says there's a pill for everything and the illusion that you should feel well all time, if not come and see me and I'll give you a pill to pop. No wonder they are over loaded and the dr...
