I've just received one of these as a freebie with seeds, but there are no instructions:

Can anyone tell me how much water I should put in to expand the pellets, please?

Over the last few weeks i have been watching an allotment tenant near me take down a fence to remove a shed in one piece onto a trailer, then get in a mini digger, a skip and most recently a tractor and trailer, to clear and dig his plot. Maybe I'm just jealous, but this seems like cheating to me! Or expensive- though as we're in a farming area he's probably getting mate's rates. I'll be watching with interest to see what he does with the land!

Does anyone have a Hotbin composter ? I am very tempted I was wary about the cooked food element but it would appear to be a good idea as it helps with the humus element. It would be for home and on the face of it would look to be a good investment , unless you know otherwise!

Noticed in LIDL today a very neat battery operated digital inside/outside thermometer with clock.

Comes with 3m lead to outside probe, full instructions and aa alkaline battery. Easy to set, also records min and max within the 24 hr day and a bleeper if the temperature detected reaches 0 deg.
Would have been very rude not to buy one, should have bought two but sealed in a box, one has to be cautious...
 Very impressed with this . It works accurately. Not suitable for outside installation of damp areas but I think it ideal for greenhouses,with sensible location, either to monitor inside/outside or inside gh/inside propagator or surface/bed of sand benches. My second one (Let me get one more before they go!!), will be adapted attached to a tube probe to plunge into compost heaps/manure and any little crevice that looks inviting(!)

The price -£2.99, less than a pint.
