HELLO FORKERS!

12+lbs in jars and two little china pots - you can have one of those Lily

Now to make a spiced brandy syrup to put more plums in - you can't have any of that until Christmas Lily

Grass Seed - Mould?

How long has your cousin had it?  I don't suppose it's been stored in optimum conditions?

That being said, what've you got to lose?  I'd try sowing it pretty thickly, that way if  half of it germinates you'll have reasonable coverage.  If none of it has germinated  in 10 days time buy some fresh and have another go.  Conditions are perfect at the moment.

Good luck

It seems that email notifications are a law unto themselves and every time the techies correct a blip it throws the notifications out of sync.  Still, we gardeners are used to things not going quite according to plan ...

Good morning all

Fidget - your dad must not be sent home without a Community Care Assessment being done and an appropriate Care Plan being in place.  If the hospital social worker hasn't sorted this out then phone your dad's local social services and ask for the assessment  as soon as poss.  They must get in touch with the hospital and tell them not to send him home until they've set everything up. ((hugs))

More jamming started - now must go mining in the garage for more jars!

HELLO FORKERS!

 I was going  to do a load of ironing, after all I did get three loads of washing dry - but I'm still involved in jam making so the ironing can wait.

Thanks for the cake Lily

Temp here went up to 21.7C thC this afternoon

I've a load of lovely blue-black plums so as well as jam I'm going to have a go at bottling some in spiced brandy, as per the River Cottage recipe here http://tallcloverfarm.com/4738/plums-in-a-jar-spicy-spirited-keepers

Nothing I can say to help, except that you're obviously a very good and kind man and your mum is very lucky to have you as a son
