Re: Home made yoghurt

When I was wwoofing once my host made a fresh batch of yoghurt every day.

Re: Fresh woodchip and chickens - OK?

Thanks Weedo, that's interesting. Do you think if I kept some and steeped some bark in water, I could make my own rooting hormone liquid? Would it keep?

Haha Maggie, the happiest goats ever!

Re: Fresh woodchip and chickens - OK?

Thanks both - plans have been kaiboshed unfortunately as the hire shop say that their chippers won't do willow - it is too fibrous and clogs the teeth up almost immediately.

Hi Gav, welcome to ish :wave:

Sorry I can't help identify your weed in the other post, but sure someone will be along soon to help.

Re: How many?

I would do one 1/2m row of each - I am not an expert by any means, but I have always used metre rows of each and always find myself flinging most of it into the chicken run.

Re: Daffodils

Jealous! A little flash of yellow would cheer me up no end this year. Ours are still about 4inch high shoots.

Haven't noticed many snowdrops this year either...I guess I need to get out and about a bit more.

I was going to hire a chipper to shred the branches up, in the hope that I could use the chippings to go in the soon to be constructed, av...

If I am ever in a pub quiz and the question comes up as to whether cows sweat, I will think of you!
