Things I don't get

I don't get ........... baked beans with a fried breakfast 

Bacon, eggs either fried, poached or scrambled, fried bread, sausages, black/white pudding, kidneys, tomatoes, mushrooms, fried leftover potatoes from the day before (either new or mashed)  ... all or any of them yes please 

BUT baked beans have no place on my breakfast plate.

Quite happy to have them with sausages and a jacket potato for supper tho'

P'doc - The good expensive stuff, prepared traditionally by experts on small farms in small amounts ... good

Attempts at mass production ... bad

I suggest that you send a sample to Kew 

with details of when and where you found it.  They should be able to identify it for you and it will also be added to the national records.

There used to be a market stall in Norwich that sold Pig's Fry 

Sadly that butcher retired, just after the tripe stall closed ............. but my butcher has some in his freezer

Koralik tomato query

Posted: 31/08/2016 at 09:26

Yes, an old heirloom variety 

Looks like they do well in cooler climates, have good flavour, can cope with a short growing period and are disease resistant.  I'd carry on growing them 

Koralik tomato query

I think Koralik are a heritage Russian variety - some of them do produce varied fruits from time to time.  The flavour's usually pretty stable but the shapes vary.  Probably because they're the product of years and years of 'seed saving' and possible cross-pollination.

If the tomatoes grow and taste ok I wouldn't worry about it. 

House Plant Recommendation

I'd recommend Sansevieria  - mine lives on a sunny windowsill above a radiator and is happy with whatever sunshine and central heating can throw at it.  Probably gets watered once a month.    It's so happy it's bursting out of it's pot.  If you live in Norfolk you're welcome to an off-shoot.
