Nothing sad about growing your own! My personal experience though is that there are certain vegetables that are just easier to buy in the shops, although nothing beats freshly dug potatoes out of your own garden.
Walter C
I agree with that. Two years ago I had a crop of five different varieties, which lasted from August to December; some I had never seen before. I was told the shops wouldn't stock some of them because of their ugly appearance. Reminds me of the saying: ... [ more ]

Does this cat belong to anybody? If so, feel free to feed and call him/her in at night please. I can feel its ribcage and spine without pressing. Thank you. Chantry Area.

Agree with Philly57, best to take it to the rspca, they will then check for microchip. Better to be in someone's hands than neglected and skinny poor thing.

Personally  I would contact the cats protection league as the rspca have a high euthanasia rate, even for healthy animals
