Since its my day off I'm waiting for rush hour to be over before I trek into the big city. Trouble is its so foggy outside I can't see the greenhouse much less the vege plot that needs digging.

Chilli peppers

I can confirm WEAR GLOVES when handling your chillies. On Sunday I cut up jalapeños to keep in white wine vinegar ready for using... its Tuesday and my lord can you tell when I accidentally touch my eyes / nose / lips. 

I've also got some threaded on a needle and thread hanging in the sunny windowsill to see if I can dry them this way. We'll see!

I'm just waiting for a few more purple riots to ripen - they'll be going in the freezer I think.

Bekkie - considering the amount of fire engines we have you'd have thought I could manage something myself! 

OH is working late here too. Cheese on toast seems a good idea Mrs G - I'm not sure how much longer I can hold out on cooking dinner.

Evening all. A plea to parents - whatever sugar loaded goodies you're putting in your dear little angels lunchbox... stop it! I had a school of 60 in today. They were wonderful all morning but come afternoon good lord were they intent on destroying everything they could.  

Still I have a day off tomorrow... going into work regardless to see what I can tweak on the tour to keep their interests.


On a gardening front - is it okay to put coffee grinds in my wormery? I don't want my worms too hyped up but I'm sure I remember reading it made good compost.

I'm sure the spambots would love that. A nice way of bombarding us with pms without having to put any effort into it?

Ooh yes please KEF! Not sure why mine aren't back up yet (although I'm still on the tablet - about to fire up the laptop after I have a shower so that might give them a shove to get them working! )
