The State Of The Ground.

Just remember that the road from Pilton A361 to north Wootton (just by the crown pub) is closed to all except village pass holders. I'm not sure when this comes into force but security set up on Saturday.  I'll check my paperwork and see what it says.

You are probably best going to wells and coming into Wootton from that direction as traders won't use that road so much.

Ah that would be kind, thank you.

I was thinking it may be better going Wells way, it had completely slipped my mind we'd be sharing the roads with the traders!

My Wife's grandparents will be coming from Street so better give them a heads up ref traffic as well...

Just looked it up. That road closes on Tuesday. However I’d still come the Wells way then you miss the traffic.

Good morning happy smiley people. Today’s facts ( believe them or not , I give no shits):
 
RAM jam jar = 30mm. So some evaporation occurring.
 
The gherkin = 0 mm. no rainfall in 24 hours
 
avocado eaten - replaced with a more high tech device. 
 
well sticky stick = well dry. Base harder than it’s been since records began. Mud thick and difficult for 2 inches. Increasingly difficult to get the stick into the base. Not yet got to “snappy stick” status but we are on our way. 
 
Big Dog paws= Flakey.  A little  like himself this morning. Current position- sideways on grass soaking up some rays.

I miss the avocado already :(

Still it put a good shift in. All the best to the pine cone which I am sure can pick up where the avocado left off.

The pine cone has form though so should stand up well in the role.

That i feel the same way is starting to make me question my sanity.  If the Sticky stick goes Snappy stick i'm not sure i'll recover!

Wow I must say, catching up on 10 pages of this thread has been an absolute delight. Thanks to one and all (esp the dog owners).

Hope the avocado was nice. It seemed like a good one radiating positivity on the weather of Pilton as it did. In gastronomic terms there is not much worse than cutting into an avocado and discovering that it is horrid on the inside and can't be eaten. 

Give belly rubs to Big Dog .

I bloody love this thread!

Aye, why I love this place.  For every argument about Tories, there's @bombfrog's Favourite Track thread.  For every thread about diversity and women in music going down the pan, there's the quotes of people's mums being asked for their opinion on Stormzy.  For every snarky response there's the thread and whatsapp group on supporting mental health at the festival.

And towering over all, like a furry colossus, is Big Dog.

Ahhh the art of knowing when to sacrifice the avocado is not one I have mastered yet. However this one was very good. It had sat in the sun all day so was ripened to perfection.

big dog says “ mmmmmmmm don’t stop” I worry about that boy sometimes

As the associated human it is OK for you to miss out the capitalisation but for the rest of us the correct usage is Big Dog.....

To be fair it’s not a substantial stick. It was my oil tank dip stick, and before that a runner bean support stick. It’s been around and had a varied life so to be relegated to well stick is not so bad

Given the positive trends since Avocado entered Dee's updates, I am concerned about its demise...

Sounds like it had a full and rich life. No harm done if it snaps in services to efests now.

if they didn't come in Glass Jars I would wonder how many people would be bringing gherkins to the farm this year ...maybe someone should let the coop know so they can get extra supplies in

Don't worry, it was always going to be upgraded as it would never have lasted until 2020 when Dee starts her new state of the ground thread!
