Garden produce recipes

Just made 9 litres of goosegog wine, and invented a very good (if I say so myself) courgette and feta soup the other day.

A neighbour introduced me to the idea recently of adding a handful of herbs to salad; delicious.

Daydaisy, I just sieve it and mix with sharp sand and sometimes some bought in growing medium. Anything that does not go through the sieve gets popped back in the compost bin. Hope that helps.

My lean to faces East and it is fine; grow toms, cucumbers, peppers and aubergines plus an apricot tree. Have a frost buster that kicks in when it is about 5 or 6 c. It still get sunlight from the South until about 4.00pm.

building houses on green belt land

HyperC, I was painting in a very upmarket house near Maida Vale, London a few years back. The house next door was having a huge kitchen ripped out; I asked the workmen why, when it seemed pretty new. The answer was; the tenants are changing, when you pay £4000 per week rent you expect a new kitchen -  the one they were taking out was 1 year old.
