Last year on Springwatch they feature a man who had a metre sqaure nature reserve in his garden, and he watched the insects and other life forms that he saw in it. Today I decided I would would make my own. I have marked it out 1m by 1m, and fenced it off with sticks. I have also planted some flowers in it, made a rock pile and a log pile. Now I'm just going to leave it to nature and see what happens, will update soon. Very Happy

Through the magic of YouTube, you can watch the Square Metre Project Springwatch piece online.

You can also get the latest on the Square Metre via the blog.

Over the last few weeks I have started grazing on side of the square. I wasn't eating it.....trust me! But I just pick it then make a pile of grass for little insects and stuff. What will turn up?! Very Happy
