Sorry!

I know you might be getting frustrated with us for not doing much but, there is a good reason. We have been concentrating too much time on the HQ and money and school and much more. We have been training Calum and Thomas to be part of the team. This meandering we can be posting almost everyday! We will give you another update on the HQ next week. We have sown sunflowers and runner beans to grow in our little patch of garden beside the HQ and other flowers like mixed annals, and many more. We will be back on track starting on the 1st July. Sorry for the rely in posts.

Cameron’s Seeds – #2

Hello, and welcome to Cameron’s Seeds! Today we will be looking at the book Cures and Remedies the Country Way” by Robin Page. This book is one of the oldest books I have!

Let me just give you a history of the book. It was made in 1978 and the author Robin Page is a Farmer, Journalist and Political Activist. Robin was born in 1943 in the UK and is still alive to this day. He supported the Conservative party (A british political party for those in different countries).

Right, enough boring stuff and let’s get to the book. Remember these are old remedies so I suggest asking a parent if it is safe. We only provide safe and healthy remedies, it may not taste nice but it works wonders! The book is full of old and bad tasting things that surprisingly work. One of the only ones I have made is the headache remedy which consists of Sage, Mint, Water and Vinegar.

First get a small pan, then get 2 cups of water and put the water in the pan. Next put the pan on the heat (6 on a stove or gas mark 4) then crush the Sage and Mint and put it in the potentially boiling water. Then put about a shot glass full of Vinegar in the combination of Water, Sage and Mint, Leave to boil for about 5 minutes. Finally sive the mixture into a cup and drink. This will take about 5-10mins to work but when it starts to work you will know!

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial on how to cure headaches! Join us next time for how to cure and prevent the common cold and cough. If you have any questions or corrections please feel free to comment or E-Mail me at yourbackgardencameron@gmail.com.

Back Garden Problems – #2

Are your plants infested with slugs? Do you have bite marks in your carrots? Well don’t put down slug pellets. Want to know why?

Hedgehogs are uncommon in gardens in britain now but are very useful. The hedgehogs eat slugs, worms and other insects. They used to be really common but because people put slug pellets down the slugs eat them and die then the hedgehogs come and eat the dead slugs and they die. So please don’t put slug pellets down or it might not be just a bite mark in your carrots you will find in our vegetable garden.

If you have any questions please contact us on yourbackgardencam@gmail.com or comment. We appreciate your feedback even if its bad.

Back Garden Birds – #3

Hello and welcome to the third edition of Back Garden Birds. Today we will be looking at the Great Spotted Woodpecker and Buzzards.

Firstly is the Great Spotted Woodpecker. This bird has black, white and red feathers. It is a medium-sized woodpecker slightly larger than a Starling. It is the most common woodpecker in the UK. You would probably think that the woodpecker feeds on wood but actually it feeds on wood-boring insects like maggots that is why they dig in the tree with their beak.

Next is the Common Buzzard. This bird is part of a group called Birds of Pray. It is mostly brown with some white and a yellow and black beak. This bird will eat most things like small animals such as Rodents, Worms and Insects. The Buzzard is highly unlikely to visit your garden but you will find them flying around the countryside
