Re: Do you think I can have chickens?

One of the things I'd be worried about by having cooks in the front garden is theft. I've had neighbours lose livestock to two-footed foxes, and after that I've always made sure they're well out of sight.
Bit of a downer, but there are some rotten apples that spoil our happy barrel. :(

Take care

Historical dye plants

Would you be interested in my leaflet about dyestuffs from the 1st century? the plants in it are indigenous to the UK and can still be grown and used...I wrote it for one of my Ancient Technology sessions.

Yours

Re: Bees

Contact your local branch of the BBKA (http://www.britishbee.org.uk/local_associations_about_us.php) and they can put you in touch with their swarm contact. Coming up to that time of year so you may be lucky.

Good luck

Let them rest for 24 hours or so at room temperature, especially if they're coming through the post.

That's what my youngest used to do! he'd jump and lift his feet up to 'fly' everywhere used to take twice as long then!, I ended up using a wrist strap after a while as he still needed something, when he had a strop he used to drag his feet and walk behind us so I used to feel like a press gang.

More land

Solar panels

More energy!

We don't do bad with what we've got but I'd love to have room for a donkey so I can rig up a cart/trap for running about longer distances without the car.
