Over the last few months mice have stolen our garage. So I needed to evict them, but I love rodents (except rats) so I bought some “Live catch” traps. After a few weeks of trying I caught one. Being the soppy moo I am, I had to release it somewhere nice, where it stood a chance. The instructions says a mile or more from where was caught or homing instincts will lead it back. I had this mouse trap in a cotton bag on my lap whilst Blokey drove the car. It was about twenty miles until I saw a location I was happy with. A layby with a deep trench next to it. “Stop here” I say.
If you read the title and thought this was a bedroom post, you’ve a dirty mind. I’ve been growing fruit trees in my garden for a few years. The “red love” apple tree has been in our garden for about three years. In previous years not a single apple. But check these snaps out…. Lots and lots of tiny apples, at last. Yay!
