Interview with Andy and Dave

Hi guys! Sorry I haven't been around for ages. I was just spending too much time chatting on this forum and not enough actually gardening and recycling and making stuff etc. That's my fault not ssish's, so I'm going to try again and use some self-control this time.

I published an interview with Andy and Dave on my blog today. The permalink is at (let me see if I can remember how to do links...) http://www.bean-sprouts.blogspot.com/20 ... -from.html
There - did that work?

I'm going on a beekeeping course next month. I've got a much bigger plot on the allotments this season. Next door's dogs got into the garden yesterday and scared the life out of the chickens so I'm not expecting any eggs for a day or two. What have you lot been up to?

Hi Chickpea.
What a coincidence. I was just thinking yesterday that we hadn't heard from you in a while. Glad you're OK.

I know what you mean about this forum. It is so addictive. At least I get to surf it while I'm stuck in the office. I get so fed up at being stuck inside when the weather is this lovely and the weeds are growing to fast - this forum is a little bit of consolation.

Sorry to hear about the chooks. It must have been a real shock for them. My cat insists on stalking mine when they are free-ranging the garden. At the weekend one of the girls got so fed up at constantly being stalked that she went for the cat and got a beak-full of ginger fur! It was really funny for me but not so funny for the cat. Still, I hope she learnt her lesson.

Great site and interview. It's great to learn more about the Hamilton bros

Thanks guys. I didn't know you had a blog, Wombat! I've added you to my links at bean-sprouts. You can add me to your Livejournal friends if you like by adding MRimmerBlog to your friends list. Same goes for anyone else on LJ.

Does anyone else here have a new blog I don't know about? I'll go and have a peek at the ishers webpages article to see if there are any others.
