spuds just fall apart when boiled

Posted: 01/08/2014 at 14:06

I cut Charlottes so they are all the same size as the smallest (approx) then boil from cold in as little water as will barely cover them adding fresh mint. Test with a sharp knife from time to time; but they don't take long (8 mins perhaps?) I have never had them collapse so far. Any left over, slice and saute next day and sprinkle with chopped chives

I have discovered mice under the kitchen sink. Jack Russell and I were hunting them at 2.00 am last night. Will have to take EVERYTHING out and let small mutt loose in there

I'm not usually a big fan of pink, but that parasol and cushion combo is stunning

Oh Thank You Neighbour!

Liri, I have a feeling that they are supposed to report it to their Council if they have it growing there. I may be wrong, but it is worth checking.
