I make sure the logs from the dead/dying trees in the garden stay on the property, much to the annoyance of the other half.

These creatures need as much assistance as I can give them.

Not a nature subject as such, but showing apparently biodegradeable products.

Teabags - the dip/string variety that the other half uses in bulk.
These were put in the compost bin well over four years back and are now at the base with the good stuff that I'm growing potatoes in.

As you can see the skeleton is intact and worse still it continues to keep the leaves inside. I could probably make a brew with the remnants.

The choice now is to sift through the whole bin and add to landfill, or put in the wood burner.

It looks like a smaller than normal bettle from this region.

Your one also looks drunk, (or dead, can you confirm )?

Discovered that wild boars did lots of digging last night on the field next to my house. On the picture is only small part of the field, but in fact there are so many fresh black places.
