When I delivered the 32mm pipe to vb's place last month, he showed me worm capsules in his GB (plus many worms), they certainly thrive in GB media

Update on plant growth. Things are still growing very well, even though it's getting quite cold at the moment. I've still got some problems with rats getting into the system, they are eating broccoli and green tomatoes, and possibly some of the peas and snow peas.. I didn't think that the tomatoes would still be going now that we're into winter, but they're doing quite well, and would have tommies on them too if the rats hadn't got them..

Might be time for some rat traps Joel. Great growth - I must give snow peas another go. I put some in but they didn't come up.

You've found one of my fatal flaws there Jaymie... Unfortunately I don't eat anywhere near as much as I should out of my garden.. I don't buy much in the way of veggies though, only potatoes and carrots really..

hey eb i bet your neibours are loving the rat farm next door to them. i just hope they are tolerant. last thing you need is the council coming round after a complaint. i sure hope you can get them under control mate.
