Nasturtiums

You can pickle Nasturtium seeds as a substitute for capers. Never had them myself, but I get through so many jars of capers perhaps I should try

Very nice tree?

Dove, thank you for that suggestion; do you think they would munch their way through it?

FG, when the builders start you may have to be a bit 'Head Prefect' with them so they don't damage your garden. I have spent about 40 years working on building sites and have seen stunning gardens wrecked in minutes.

Mice or possibly Mouse

Posted: 02/08/2014 at 16:46

Cleared out under the kitchen sink this morning and found...a large box of unopened mouse poison that the mice had half eaten! But I know they are still alive as I heard one blundering around in there at 5.30 this morning. The Jack Russell would not go into the cupboard even after I had vacuumed up everything, she just put her ears flat and refused to go in.

Went and got new poison already in containers, put 2 in there. All cloths and dusters have been boiled and will now go into plastic boxes for protection. (I don't look after my jewelry this well!) I can guess where they are getting in; around the pipework, but that is a difficult area to block off, though will try with some MDF I've got.

To be cautious, I would also sow some in a seed tray in a cold frame or greenhouse then prick them out into larger pots, when they are 3 or 4 cm high
