Fire engine fueled up ready to go. Do they drive on the same side of the road as the north?

I've solent wight to try this year but thought I'd try elephant for the novelty factor and that it's good for roasts so isn't purely to keep myself amused..

Morning all. Big day at work and to be honest I'm cream crackered! Thank goodness tomorrow is my day off and next week I'm even getting a proper "weekend" - these one day offs really scramble my brain.

Does anyone know if elephant garlic will grow happily in a pot?

Should I leave my onions

Posted: 28/10/2014 at 07:27

What kind of onions are they? My electric red onions were monsters this year making shop brought look very pathetic but I'm just wondering how big yours should have grown before we strike them as a poor lot.

Silly how people cut their noses to spite their faces GardenGirl. I've seen no end of things thrown away rather than be donated "just because".

Sat at work having just finished the day shift. Now waiting for the night shift to start - lots of zombies wandering around and screaming girls. I'm trying to not eat my dinner until at least 17:30 so I wont get hungry (coffee shop has a large supply of chocolate which is not good!!) later on.

My attempts as resisting are proving not so great at the moment. Just look at what I'm spending on garden centres!

Right I've booked the fire engine there's no way I'll not get stuck in the traffic now! Anyone needing a lift from here to there get your fire hats on we've a lot of motorway to churn up.

Anyone for gluten free brownies? Pretty sure, what with all the health fads, that gluten free also means super healthy and thus not fattening.... right?

Morning all! 13 hour shift at work today as the fright night horrors have started. Hopefully I can collect my garlic bulbs from the postman too and then we'll be working out where they can go when I (might) have a day off on Friday. The vegetable garden is no way near ready for anything so space is tight.

Keep safe everyone!

Only in Sheffield could you be driving an American police car and be over taken by a Welsh ambulance! I think we both gave each other a funny look before we waved!
