RE: Chat hub
When I bought this place I decided that the past owner was a masochist and didn't want to fall into his trap. I kept the front lawn and let the rest go back to nature. 

Front yard.

If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?

RE: Chat hub
I dont know whats wrong with me, but the PO of the house let the yard overgrow, and I am trying to get the half of the property on the house side of the brook groomed up. Hoping to get the rest cleared up this year, and start getting some fruit trees and plants planted next spring. Want apple, pear, peaches, raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. Maybe more at some point. Best part, I can make some booze out of what the family dont eat Drinks

Interesting property for sure 18, and I just love the fruit trees Pulsar, I have 2 apple trees on our new property and would like to plant a couple more, maybe a pear and a cherry. We'll see, we are in the process of building a new home.

RE: Chat hub
I'm looking for an apple tree that will survive the conditions - one of the old birch trees has died - it was probably 300-400 years old. The house is around 400 years old.

But it can get pretty cold there at least by UK standards. I've been there when it was below -20C which was fun even if it did mean melting snow for water.

After 6 hours on the job, a couple of hours to pick up the dogs and get home, I think I deserve a lot of beer but it's a work day tomorrow Sad

So a dram or two will have to suffice. Wink

This is our back garden a few winter's ago with my boy about to throw a snowball at me Smile

And this one looking back at the house from under that apple tree (which is substantially bigger than it appears) Smile
