Slow cookers

Posted: 15/10/2014 at 18:12

Not strictly gardening, but I will be putting home grown veg in it.

I bought a slow cooker today and then took it back as the lid did not fit snugly, to me it seems important if you are cooking a stew for 5 hours that the liquid should not evaporate due to an ill fitting lid. Was I right?

brat!!

kev, you sound really upset. Could you raise the level of the top of the gate to the legal height for spikes? ...and also follow Dove's advice.

Alan, on Amazon; Green Blade garden kneeler - £11.30. It's the same as mine.

Need help identifying (and saving) this small plant

I agree with Dave, you could google Tradescantia (indoor varieties) and see if they look familiar.

Alan, I've just had a look at mine - no brand name on it. It is metal and folds up for storage.

Verdun, that sounds as though you are speaking through a medium, whooooOOOOOOooo ...spooky. On the other hand, I don't mean to cast nasturtiums, but have you tried reading the instructions to this ipad thingy?

I got F-F when she was 9, so she was already part trained, I have trained her : NOT to bark at horses, babies ( though I haven't really achieved much in her relations to children and adults) I have finally figured out most of the commands that she was taught.

My wonderful builder breeds and trains gun dogs. He also gives training classes to dogs with owners; he says that you train the owner, not the dog. You and your family have to be consistent (but totally) when training. If doing 'x ' is forbidden to the dog, the whole family has to be consistent about it, at all times, spray the dog with water if they don't obey. In the final resort you have to ask yourself, 'Do I run this family or does a French Poodle'?
