Tizer bottles with bulbous top halves,

Taking a pop-bottle to the corner shop to buy Vinegar loose from the barrel.

Spuds a shilling (5p) for 5lbs.

Rag & bone men giving day-old chickens in exchange for rags.

Sheep & pigs being unloaded outside the butchers, as you bought the meat inside. 

Taking pop-bottles back to the shop for the 2d deposit.

Roof repairs

Probably bitumen you're thinking of, Pansy....I would imagine the thickness involved would mean that it wouldn't dry properly.

Roof repairs

Alan - A quick fix may come by means of a suitably size piece of exterior grade plywood screwed & glued (liquid nails adhesive is best)  from the inside....then I presume the whole roof or a section of it will need re-felting.

HELLO FORKERS!

Hi, Punkdoc....saw your name and wanted to say nice to see you around.

Curled new growth on tomato plant

Posted: 28/07/2014 at 21:46

Well that looks to be a very healthy tomato plant to me...the bottom truss seems to have set fruit, so feed weekly with a high potash feed such as Tomorite from now on.

The bending down of the upper leaves are nothing to worry about, on contrary, it's the sign of a healthy plant.

The only leaf curling of tomato leaves you should be concerned about, is when hey roll up into a cigar shape.
