I agree - casserole/slow cooker type dishes are a perfect way to use the legs - cook double the amount and use half of it to make a pie filling - two dishes for one lot of electricity

Growing honeysuckle in pot

Posted: 25/02/2016 at 09:18

Hello and welcome Little Bird

Honeysuckle, being a woodland and hedgerow plant, likes it's face in the sun and a deep cool root run and will suffer from powdery mildew if its roots dry out.

If grown in a container it needs to be really large, deep and kept in the shade, and the soil needs to be kept moist (not wet, but moist). 

I suggest that John Innes No 3 loam based compost is the most suitable, and I would add a good helping of organic material to this I'd use well rotted farmyard manure and leaf mould.

As long as you're not a caterpillar Chicky

Lesley, hope son is feeling better soon.

The source of the smell is thought to be the tray under the drain in the fridge - it seemed to be full of unidentifiable smelly gunk!  It was almost impossible to get at, but OH worked miracles with long BBQ skewers, J cloths and kitchen roll, then antibac liquid.  Only the slightest whiff this morning after the kitchen had been shut up all night so hopefully some Neutradol will sort that out.  If it comes back I think we'll need a kitchen fitter to come and deconstruct the kitchen   Talk about a design flaw

.... Snow disappeared fairly quickly yesterday but it snowed on and off all morning at work. ...

 

It's been trying to snow here this morning   but I think we've seen the last of it for the time being - there are blue patches of sky and the sun's trying to shine.

HOSTA - you have a PM

Good morning all  G'day Pat

I'm a bit late on board this morning - instead of waking first as usual I was still sound asleep when OH brought me my first mug of coffee!   So instead of coming down in my dressing gown and noodling with you lot I had my shower and dressed and now I'm on the sofa with my second mug of coffee. 

It's probably a good day to have a change of routine as we've a friend coming for the weekend and there's housework and cooking to be done now so that I can relax and natter when she's here.

BL - I hope the lady was reassured that her much loved family home will be much loved and enjoyed by its new family - I'm sure that will make leaving it a little easier to bear
