Slow cookers

Posted: 15/10/2014 at 18:30

This lid actually rocked from side to side and I could see quite a large gap around part of the edge. I learnt recently that steam is invisible it is vapour that one sees.

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?

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?
