HELLO FORKERS!

Just been walking about with crying baby granddaughter, 3 weeks old. Son and DIL have been trying to settle other gd aged 2 1/2. Daughters x 2 and GC x 5 arrive tomorrow. May not have time to be on here!

Today went to help other son tidy his garden for his baby's baptism party. I removed loads of brambles from his shrubs. Ouch, stinging nettles too. OH mowed his grass, big garden. Tired.

Thanks OL. They are only yellow ones, one shortie, the other tall. The 2 other sorts, red and orange red, didn't germinate.

What a beautiful tidy bed, Chris, and the edge is perfect.

The star today is the rain, watering everything, saving money and work. But it's not the right day, I had outdoor things planned. Tomorrow would be much more convenient!

Morning all.

Was going to son No 2 today to help sort his garden for baby's Baptism party on Sunday, but it's pouring. I've made lunch so we'll go then. Have to take a couple of extra foam mattresses anyway for guests. May have to help with garden tomorrow instead.

Beaus mum did you want to know how to upload Google images? We used to do it quite a bit well over a year ago, but then there was some question about copyright, so I don't know how it is now.

Thank you Kitchen gardener, just what I wanted to hear!

Got Big Courgettes. Recipes, please!

Posted: 07/08/2014 at 08:26

Made a Moroccan cous cous salad with courgettes and chicken to take to son's for lunch today.

Make a marinade for chicken breasts with Greek yoghurt, harissa, ground coriander. Wrap breasts lightly in foil and bake in oven for about 20 mins or til cooked. Put cous cous in bowl and cover with boiling water, leave until absorbed, stirring from time to time with a fork then add lemon juice. Chop courgettes and fry until coloured but still a bit crisp. Chop French beans and cook al dente. Make dressing from cider vinegar, olive oil, the juices from the chicken, chopped lemon thyme, a little harissa or chilli, seasoning. Cut chicken in bite size pieces and mix all ingredients together.

Sorry, as I did it like that with what I had available, I don't have a recipe for quantities and timings, just adjust as you think fit.
