You could make enough fabric to last a lifetime with your collection of beasts.

I've missed this too, feel a little less isolated already!

Suddenly my full windowsills and growhouses being full of trays of showings and growings feels normal!

Quick crops here are salad leaves, spring onions and pea shoots.

Sorrel is ace, it's been great all over winter and will keeps going.

Don't forget the flowers! Got a feeling we're going to need the flowers more than ever this year

Also chillis chard and spinach.

My spinach isn't coming up and not many of the peas did either. Not sure why. The lettuce came up all right.

I'm thinking a horse leather coat, and a nifty pair of slippers from the guinea pigs?

I find my biggest issues with spinach are either not enough water, or seed that's been stored warm and therefore lost viability

a decent size mutt will make a waistcoat front and cats make hats( full pelt with face and paws on, fold it to shape and dry it on the head)

I'm thinking you do like to live dangerously.

the slimy hoard part many

3 , in the propagator, i found them sleeping and left them so.

they have eaten 4 cucumbers and a few peas

circumstances being as they are i sowed in some of the half bag of seed compost from last year which had been sitting in a corner of the yard.

next batch will get steamed as i am not growing cut and not come again salads for the little lickers

Good idea. There is plenty of wild produce for them.
