I've just been told (aka three minutes ago and have rushed on here) by an allotment holder that if her garlic goes yellow she puts epsum salt on her plot as it indicates the garlic is lacking in magnesium.

OL - mine seem to be perfectly happy in the greenhouse right now. If its looking like a cold night I put them in propagators for extra protection though they're growing to the point they wont fit much longer. If the weather changes for the worse I'll put them in my plastic greenhouse within the actual greenhouse but its been so mild this year I'm not too worried about big frosts.


Just keep an eye on the weather reports!

Thanks Nut! I'll have a look at that.


Lovely and sunny here - currently sat on the patio trying to put off going back inside to do the cleaning.

OL did you put the maggots out for the birds?!

Matty - congratulations for your daughter! I keep trying to drop hints at OH about getting engaged but his trip to Machine Mart reliably informs me there'll be no money in his bank account for a shiny ring for a while. Don't worry about the costings- a few if my friends getting married made so much themselves creating really very unique (but surprisingly simple) things and shopped around they say they've no idea how you get cost to the average cost without going silly.

I'm trying to make gluten free lemon drizzle cake with potatoes. The ingredients list doesn't call for eggs but the instructions due. Cue meltdown!!

Punkdoc can you crank it up a little please?! I can still hear the neighbours kids! Think they've found the sugar jar bless them!

....! Big lump of beef awaiting my attention for a roast tonight - guess that means I'd best start pottering on!

What time are you expecting us Clari?   I can lay my hands on a couple of bottles of Medoc 

Strictly a cider drinker here KEF alas but any time after 18:00! Not sure why I brought such a large joint for just two of us! Lots of beef sandwiches this week!

Also I've lost my roasting tin - think its disappeared in the manshed along with my hairdryer.

How is the worm set up Clari? Any pics of them moving in

I set it up Friday night, opened it yesterday to find most of the worms hanging around on the lid! I've a few photos I'll pop up later, nothing terribly impressive to look at I'm afraid!

Need a sausage sandwich to get the brain working KEF?

Trying to work out what I CAN DO in the garden today. This list is varying wildly from what needs to be done! Big lump of beef awaiting my attention for a roast tonight - guess that means I'd best start pottering on!
