Growing Shop bought Ginger

Posted: 17/12/2014 at 14:44

Hi! Like you I stuck some ginger in the ground earlier this year - its a lovely little plant and grew about half an inch this season (South Yorkshire - in greenhouse) you can imagine how long you'd need before you could use it regularly and as people have said the conditions are hard to achieve.

To me its a plant for amusement rather than one that will keep my kitchen full,

Wrong coal?

Now I'm not in the best position to say as my experience with coal is more to do with 14 ton steam engines than domestic fires but I'm sure when we tried anthracite it needed a strong updraft (air flow from underneath). Is there anything you can do on your fire to help the air flow?

You might need to dig down and try mining buckets of the good stuff at night (when its all shut up) unfortunately.

Is it worth phoning your supplier to see if they have any advice / complaints from others?

If it's still bagged up phone your new supplier and ask them to come and get it!

Funny you should mention rescue dogs Damsel; we've just filled in the adoption form to adopt a German Shepherd. Hopefully they'll get in contact soon to arrange a home check and will consider us suitable!

And when positivity doesn't work block them. If they don't get the attention they crave they'll get the hint and slink away to torture some other poor souls.

Can you send me a shot of whatever you're drinking Dove? I really need to clean the house but I could happily nap the day away.

Must get our family secret Santa cracker finished. They specified bad joke!

Morning all. Its my day off (yay!) And since I can't get a doctors appointment to see about this cough that's been lingering far too long now I'm self treating with mugs of tea, the heating on, and crawling back into bed to make a nest with a few good books.

Must do the wrapping too: I did some a while ago and due to my tbi I'm having to go through the receipts and then squidging all the parcels to see which belongs to who and indeed what they are! I really must learn to put labels on!

Lizzie; feel free to send the mulled wine this way. There's no reason for me to have to leave the house today

Keep safe everyone!
