Tie them to the fence or build a playpen would be my recommendation! I had a child on my allotment a couple of years ago who dug a very large hole and then filled it in. As the soil was very loose when I stepped in it I went down about a foot and nearly broke my leg. I hurt myself quite badly and th...

I saw on TV this morning that during the first 19 days of January we had only 8 hours of sunshine! It was so lovely for the last 3 days it really lifted my spirits and then today, back into the gloom again. Roll on Spring, I am one SAD person under the cloud. :(

Still no mouse...

Forty eight hours on, no mouse, cheese still there and I'm increasingly hopeful.

Still no ideas though Grock, what's he done to upset you anyway?

If you bothered to look at the first posting you would realise that Mandy has asked for advice because she's never grown comfrey before, so superior remarks like that are less than helpful.

It's gone, for now...

A massive clear out of the outhouse has taken place, there is nothing in there now, including a mouse. We didn't find it, although there were several pantries, but it's definitely not there and nowhere else to hide. I put a piece of cheese out last night as a test and it's not been touched, so I am ...

Mouse Busters

Hi Grock I saw that too but we're a bit short on mouse busters around this area. I've scheduled a massive clear out on Sunday and I am determined to find him somehow. I used to have 6 cats who brought hundreds of mice in for me and usually let them go in the house. I caught and rehoused all of them ...

Thanks guys, not what I want to hear but thanks anyway. As the weather is promising to be good tomorrow I'm going to have one last go at emptying everything out and finding the little sucker. Better yet, if I don't put anything back but relocate it, perhaps it might work. I just can't bring myself t...

Humane Mousetraps

Help! I have a mouse living in my outhouse (attached to my kitchen) which has been in residence since early December. I can't put down a trap or poison; I'm sorry guys, I don't kill things. I bought a humane trap which hasn't worked and currently I'm feeding the little thing on cheese (he just loves...

Attn GROCK

Grock Be careful at that sing a long Sound of Music. There was a show in our area a couple of years ago and during the Best Dressed Nun competition the extended stage collapsed into the orchestra pit and 20 of the nuns disappeared in a puff of dust! Half the audience thought it was part of the show ...
