pancake day

Posted: 09/02/2016 at 08:56

We'll have savoury ones for our main course (either  emmental cheese and slices of smoked ham or duck and plum sauce, depending on whether there's any duck in the supermarket this morning).

Then for pud we'll have sweet ones, with either a fruit compote (probably raspberries, red currants, blackberries etc) , sugar and lemon, or maple syrup.

I shall consult OH

They look a bit like Physalis   (Chinese lantern, Cape gooseberry etc).  Solanaceae so related to aubergines

If you're talking about pelargoniums, I find they take most of the year round.  Should be fine now.

Ah, that's ok then ....... I was perplexed by planting aubergines in the winter in the UK LOL! 

I've not grown a lot of them, so am by no means an expert - let's see what others think as they come along (I'm up early this morning).

Hi Chrystal

Those don't look like the leaves of aubergines I've grown in the past - my plants had darker more toothed leaves.

Whereabouts are you?  I wouldn't expect aubergines to be growing outside in the UK at this time of year ..... but it's been a funny season

Oooh that's full of possibilities!!!  If you can dig that hole I bet you can turn it into a pond without out builder ....... probably not as sophisticated a pond as a builder would make, but .......

Great news Clari    I hope the next lot comes on time ... but it's really not good enough - you should still speak to the auditors.
