David, are you ok??

Just testing the two new icons on the far left of the message box taskbar.....or of course, they could have been there all the time and I hadn't noticed them.

Thank you. I think they were a touch too beetrooty,though, I'd use a little less next time.

Did you blend it before addng to the mixture?

Ignore me, this is just a test.

Well done, FloBear. It's the addition of beetroot that gives the aforementioned cake its moisture characteristic.

Thanks for the suggestion, Becks.

To clarify:  When I say 63% +, this means the actual percentage of the cacao bean in chocolate......63% being quite rich.

The great part of this cake is that it has small pieces of  plain dark chocolate (at least 60%) added and these stay whole in the cooking.

Tomato blight

Posted: 06/08/2012 at 09:26

This is such a shame to hear and must be very disheartening for you.

First of all I would suggest that if the present trend of wet summers continues, growing tomatoes outdoors will be a thing of the past.....the spores of blight flourish in warm damp conditions. Growing in a greenhouse does give some degree of protection as the foliage remains dry for the most part.

The only advice I could offer is to grow blight resistant varieties in future (Ferline by T&M is a reliable one) and keep your greenhouse well ventilated.

Btw, Your greenhouse will need a scrub-up with Jeyes Fluid before you plant with tomatoes again and *fumigate using a sulphur candle just before planting.

*Make sure the greenhouse is totally empty before fumigating.
