Resident in the wrong - green bins are for compostable waste, stones aren't compostable, end of story! Sounds like he got a very good deal if the council sent out a special lorry to pick them up too!

Wouldn't it be illegal to use as a weed killer in the UK under current regs?

No swallows round here yet - I hope you're theory that their late arrival suggests a warm summer is correct! We're enjoying a pretty fine spring so far - working in shorts and t-shirt earlier in the week! - so lets hope there's more to come.

How wonderful that you have hares - haven't seen them round here for many years. Is there a good population in that area ?

We had a customer on the nursery yesterday asking if we knew where he could buy an acre of land to "grow some vegetables". Small parcels of land already command huge premiums round here as they are usually bought as pony paddock, and hence often sell at ten times farmland prices. It'll make for jolly expensive vegetables ! There was also a guy on the TV yesterday extolling the virtues of self sufficiency, saying triumphantly "an acre of land can feed 12 people".....he forgot to mention how much work would be involved in cultivating that acre!
