Lovely day developing here as well,
Had planned to weed the front and cut down whatever needs it, but I have new plants from yesterday to put in and containers to plant up. Hey ho -
Have a feeling the weeds will win otherwise they will just take over!
Dahlia Honka continues to be more and more spectacular as it matures
And roses are in full flush
Should be out - right off I go
I just leave them to do whtever they want - seems to work - my problem is being 'short' that if I lean over too far to remove finished compost I am terrified of falling in
with the dalek. I fill it up and then let it sink. I lift the whole plastic cylinder off and move it to next to pile of stuff. then I throw part rotted stuff back in again. Then it goes in the Tardis (square black thing) for maturing until next spring. I cant lift that off , so it comes apart.(4 sides and a lid that supposed to slot together) Its currently strapped up with duck tape.
Compost corner. left to right. Tardis, Rotol, Dalek.(Other dalek not in view)
Dalek lifted off, compost ready to move left.

Calling all forum chefs... OH bought some venison steaks for me to cook. As you may not know, cooking I don't do these days. In all my 27 years I have never cooked venison so any tips and ideas, accompaniments etc greatly received.
If you've not cooked venison steaks before, I'd go with Delia
and remember that venison, being game, is very lean so don't overcook it, and after cooking give it a good 5 minutes rest before serving. If you take it out of the pan when it's slightly less done than you would like, it will continue to cook while it rests.
I would differ slightly from Delia by removing the steaks from the pan and putting them somewhere to rest, then finish the sauce while they're resting, and pour the sauce over when they're ready to serve.
Love venison- great in a casserole too. I'd agree with you Dove. I've always taken meat out before deglazing to do a sauce. I seem to remember - did she not come under fire from lots of chefs for doing that?
Anyway- morning all!
Reading back the posts from yesterday as I wasn't really on much - good luck Stacey. Not something to leave any length of time. Don't be fobbed off either.
Did lots of concreting yesterday- posts for raised beds for sunny fence. Hope to get some timber on them so that I can get plants in. Plenty of suitable ones for there. Nice day again here but work for me which is a shame as I could do with getting on out there again. Going to nursery later as it's the last day of 25% off- can't resist.
Nice to see you pg- we missed you! Hope all is going well for you at work
Work for me too Hope you all have a good day
Good luck with the dr Stacey x
