instead of being out in the sunshine tending my weeds I shall have to sit in a classroom being lectured on speeding, because I was driving on a road full of wannabe Olympic cyclists and instead of keeping my eyes glued on the speedo in case I got too near to one I drifted over by 5mph and got clocked. The car would have still stopped quicker than the braking time given out in the highway code but I suppose the government needs the stealth tax. First ticket in 55 years driving.

My onions appear to be ready, lying there looking fat and tasty. What's the recommended method? Leave them lying in the soil and harvest as required? Or harvest now and store by tying and hanging up?

Also - how do I know when my garlic is ready for pulling up?

This morning I decided to have a look at my large compost bin after ignoring it for several weeks to see if we had any compost worth spreading.
What I found was a large ants nest with ants busily running around and carrying eggs etc. There were a few winged ants as well.
This presented me with a problem. Basically the ants are breaking down the stuff in the heap which is what I want to happen. However it make clearing the bin of compost awkward and I don't want to transfer the ants to my beds to set up yet another colony. I popped round to a local DIY store but all the ant killers around use permethrin which would also bump off the beneficial insects as well that help the breakdown process.
Any suggestions,advice or previous experience with this matter.
