Re: Hi from Anglesey

Hi! Welcome. I used to love it here years ago but it's gone a bit quiet. Perhaps we can do something about that? :) I see you are from Anglesey, one of my best and favourite places in the world. So much peace there. We come every year. Anyway, welcome :)

Opinions on vets

I've read a few message on here about livestock and there seems to be a lot of recommendations not to take your animal to a vet if it's suffering. I wonder what your opinion is of your vet? :icon_smile:

Re: Vegetables in boggy ground

We're surrounded by water, and the river seems to "visit" a couple of times a year. So we have a pretty damp garden. However, I have grown a variety of stuff - rhubarb/courgettes/beans/peas - general stuff successfully. Give it a try and grow what you like to eat. I would invest in some gr...

Re: CATS!!

I prefer cats to having rats on my patch!

I have four cats (and no close neighbours) - and three dogs - they don't really trouble my patch. Are you sure you don't have cat nip growing there? :icon_smile:

Re: Diabetes

Thanks to all of you - I haven't checked here for a while (had a big operation recently).... Yep, my nurse even said - have a bowl of cereal before bed time!!! Arghhh... I limit my carbs (i.e. pots, rice, pasta, etc...) and I have stayed medication free for my first year (I am type 2)... which is OK!
