Healthy Eating

Posted: Yesterday at 18:54

For me it's home cooked food. Nothing processed apart from the odd pizza. Fresh veg and fruit, fat, butter, Sunday lard, olive oil and no supermarket ready meals. It's the way I was brought up, and the Mrs and we have 3 huge 6ft plus boys who are all healthy and we rarely see a doctor. We don't have much sugar though, a bag lasts 2 weeks, but the Mrs bakes weekly so she does use caster, but what she bakes lasts us a week. Everything in moderation as well.

Plants you don't like...are there any?

I hate anything which runs. Snowberry, soapwort, acanthus, Jap anemone etc etc. Number of times I've battled against it in various clients gardens and on the odd occasion my own. Leyllandii as well it should be banned in residential gardens.

It's one of three things, damping off, mice or slugs. More than likely mice. I've had to resow and set traps this year due to field mice digging up the seeds.

Derek pot them on into 9cm pots in some gritty compost. They'll be fine in your conservatory over winter. They're hardy so the cold won't bother them much although they will need a degree of protection whilst they're so young. I'd start feeding them some liquid seaweed in early spring and by May they should be ready to plant out.
