After a couple of burglaries in recent months we realise we need to improve our security with securitiy lighting, CCTV and possibly alarms.  We are in a rural location and there is no electricity on site.  Any advice? Do you know any suppliers who deal with situations such as ours.

Hi folks.  I have such a heavy crop of outdoor tomatoes that the trusses are beginning to break off the plant.  The fruit is still mainly green at the moment so they have to survive on the plant for some time yet.  Any hints on how to support them?  I have tried tying them to a leaf higher up the stem with garden twine but I think they are going to 'fold' and then snap.

I like seed saving and tend to end up with the windowsills and radiators covering in piles of beans.
But Aldi sell net bags for 25p.  They are designed for weighing veg so as not to use one off plastic bags.
I have bought quite a few, and hope to dry the pods off in them.  I can have a neat little rows of bags hanging along the radiators.  Then if the beans fall out they are in the bag and not all over the carpet.  Then I can hang them up hopefully out of the way of mice. 
I left quite a few beans in my car and a mouse got in and ate them.  There must have been a hole because when I cleared the car and sold it, I never saw any mice.  So I lost some of my favourite HSL stocks.
One year I had boxes but the pods at the bottom rotted off, and another my husband got helpful and put them all into one box and muddled them all up.  Since then I have only grown one of each seed type so I can tell them apart.  So the bags should help with labelling as well.
