...Skarlett, to post a photo click on the tree icon above where you are typing and then follow instructions. I find it best to pick out the photos I want to post first so I know where to find them (files and tags etc are a bit of a closed book to me)

Grateful D, I think there are a lot of forum members, but I don't think that many of them post on threads unless they have a specific gardening problem

Best ways of preserving beetroot

Posted: 01/08/2014 at 19:10

Roast Autumn veg; Beetroot peeled and chopped into 4 or 6, Pumpkin; scrub the skin well with veg brush cut open de-seed and chop into larger bits than the beetroot (think about what cooks slowly and cut it smaller) Red onions, peeled and cut into 4 or 6 wedges, 6 or 8 garlic cloves un-peeled. And then any other veg that needs using especially if it is a hot colour.

Heat oven to 180 with large roasting tin. Pour veg into tin with large slurp of olive oil and loads of fresh herbs stripped off their stalks, mix well, roast until beetroot is tender, stirring once (about 40 mins). This can be eaten now...frozen now....added to stock in blender and made into incredible soup

The problem with mice is that apparently they don't have bladders, so they leave a trail of urine everywhere. There are also loads of mouse droppings under the kitchen sink and that is where I keep all the cleaning materials, dusters, and the cloths I use to wipe down kitchen surfaces. So the mice, whatever kind they are HAVE to go.

There is a recipe for courgette bread and loads more courgette recipes on BBC Good Food (I think it is called) I seem to somehow be registered with them and they send me recipe emails from time to time.
