Re: Feed your wormery

don,t really need a wormery we have a regular supply of manure from a local stable and within 6months it,s nearly 50% worms,nearly everyone on the allotment is pleased with it and it,s free.

Re: Late Winter Bits and Bobs - 2018

I gathered together all the 25mm plastic pipe and the 28mmID x 5ft metal pipe and made the framework for a 12ftx12ft netted tunnel for my brassica bed, good days work i think, it,s probably cost me about 30 quid,i think a wonder wall tunnel would have been about 200 quid, good result!
