What about chutneys and jams made with your own produce?

Could you have plant sales at other times of the year?

It's a yummy sticky cake made with oatmeal and black treacle. Best with ginger in it.

I use a container like the one Dove posted on the previous page. But before that I never had a bird with its feet caught. Better be safe than sorry though.

You must be mad Yvie, especially with a sore throat. Go to bed with a hot honey, lemon and brandy.

My Lucifer hasn't spread as much as I wanted it too. Probably too hot and dry here in the summer.

Morning all.

Your bed is looking great DD. Are you sure you don't want to join the Open Gardens?I've never bought or seen an intact empty bottle of wine.

Going to supermarket.

Happy birthday Lily Pilly

Can you help identify this plant (v. 2) ?

It is the herbaceous phlomis. I have it in my garden. There is a shrubby one too.

Fairygirl, we better get our coats together!

Did some weeding today and pruned a huge Tuscany rose. Couldn't tell what was what in the spring when the leaves weren't there. Loads of dead wood and old stems in the middle.

Love peanut brittle, but not with chilli. Do people still roast marshmallows on bonfires? Something warm and savoury? Chicken noodle soup, noodles look a bit like worms, OK for the theme.

Invasive shrub

Mine has been in it's place for over 15 years, has spread a bit but certainly isn't invasive.

Dove, I don't know how cold it gets in East Anglia, but here in Dordogne I've never managed to keep one through the winter in a flower bed. We usually have several -10°s in the winter though, except for last winter. When I've had them they've flowered right up to the frosts.
