Iam in Texas now, but I live in Berkshire. On the next summer I plan to decorate my garden with a nice pond.
I want to decide upon a motor for the pump. At least, I can buy here and then bring it home.

Please help..  :confused

Hi Paul, this is my first year of growing rhubarb and it's coming along nicely - but why can't I harvest this first year? All the books say to leave the first year alone .... but I want to make chutney! Also what do I do with it? let it rot down?  pick it and throw away? 

Help please  :think

Hi all,

The latest project to come out of the workshop is a clock for the Childrens Centre. It's a pendulum clock with a cats head above it and what is difficult to see in the finished photo is the mouse hanging on to the cats tail below it.

Shirl bought me the plans for Christmas and I got all the parts and started it when we came back off of holiday.

All the parts have now been cut
