Has anyone used this as substitute lawn? As my lawn is tiny, am thinking of changeing to this. Would need to sow seeds soon (seedaholic have them) to pot on for winter and plant out in spring.

Would like info/opinions on this please

Rotting courgettes

A neighbour recommends removing flowers as courgettes develop to stop the rotting. Have done that in previous years, but forgot this year and have had no problems.

I've found a recipe on line; all measurements in 'cups' and am brining the seeds first as collected so many, then will use white balsamic from Lidl Should fill a 500ml jar and a smaller one. The theory is the brining stops them from being too mustardy.

In Malta, they seem to just preserve their capers in salt, which makes them far too salty, bought capers are in brine and Jane Grigson, normally a food hero of mine scoffs at the idea of preserving Nasturtium seeds 

But if Dove does it, that's good enough for me

Mice or possibly Mouse

Checked the cupboard this morning, no droppings, so keeping fingers crossed that the rest of them were killed by the mouse poison packet they helped themselves to.
