    We are thinking of going to the above. We've not been before and it's not just down the road. Is this a good agricultural show or just an oversized car boot sale as too many have turned into. Opinions please.

    How fast have beans been emerging. I got some drilled this week, but the weather stopped application of the pre-em. Just wondering how long I have ? The linseed that I got in last week has been really slow, 8 days and not up yet, I would have expected 6 days at the end of April. Plenty of...

    Frozen hen eggs

    Collecting the eggs this morning a couple had frozen and split the shells. Can I assume that all frozen eggs split or will there be others that don't show up in this way. If so is there a way of telling if an egg has been frozen.

    lift pump for vehicle without one

    I've changed the fuel filter on our car (S MAX) and it doesn't have a lift pump. It's always been a pig to get the fuel back through but this time I can't get it to go and think there may be a poor seal on one of the connections or a split pipe. Is there a pump I can buy to draw the fuel through...
