Just a quick question as I am off out shortly, but I want advice on my Sweet Pointed and Bell peppers please.  They seem to be suffering in the cold weather despite being in the greenhouse.  I have been picking the ones that have changed colour but should I harvest those that feel ripe but are still green?  I don't want to lose them. 

Your help is much appreciated.

Today I went to the lotty to find my sweetcorn completely devastated by badgers - as have other allotment holders recently. We had no sign of badgers until a couple of years ago. Our site is in suburban Birmingham near a railway line and a small river.
Has anyone actually found an effective of stopping them getting at the sweetcorn? On the web the only methods that seem effective involve the sort fencing needed to stop foxes getting at chickens or electric fences (which aren't an option on our site!)

My "questions asked" to "suggestions offered" ratio on this forum is appalling so here's an attempt to redress things.  After endless moaning about trying to break up my clay-based soil no matter how much compost/manure I added, I cashed in my pension to get an 18v cordless tiller. It's probably one of the smallest on the market but its performance was excellent after the sun baked solid parts of the plot the other week, it even broke up easily parts that have been compacted solid for years.  40 minutes on one charge and I reckon it will take no more than a few days to get the whole plot done nicely... compared to the never-ending struggle of boulder breaking with a fork and bag after bag of soil improver.  I'd always been wary of the cheaper end garden gadgets (burnt before), but as they say, if only I'd found this 15 years ago. Thoroughly recommended toy for the plot.
