David, could I have egg fried rice please 


Consider it ordered, Lily....The paddy field is ready, all I need now is some form  of heat, light & humidity. I'm looking into possibility of buying some cheap,  ex-industrial, chicken brooders I've seen on Ebay.

Yes, well said.....can't understand why people keep adding posts to the thread.

With hesitance I resurrect this thread, but just to say that Wintersong's account is still active and hopefully she may decide to re-join us at some point.


Root Trainers

I would recommend root-trainers for growing sweet peas (with one reservation) that is they are best for seed sown in autumn.

Still okay, but the advantages decrease for seed sown after Christmas and beyond as root congestion is less of a problem.

Has anyone made their own greenhouse staging?

Posted: 06/01/2016 at 21:40

Just as a temporary measure until I had time to do a proper job, I made one from a pasting table, something like so: having said that, it did last for about five years.

I don't think I would be tempted to make one from one of those flimsy ones with hardboard tops costing around a tenner....too prone to sag in the middle.

Strictly is back!

Take heart ladies, I miss very little where Strictly is concerned, but I don't recall it either.

Probably this was only ever intended to be a time filler but you may still enjoy:
