Dove, do you have to cook them at all? ...and I'm sure it can't be half a century

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

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

Great to see this thread back

What's the star in your garden right now

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
