Absolutely nothing to do with gardening too too

I've lived quite a while and did several things at once, and with a broom shoved wherever ...........

Yes, if you're not eating rice straight away chill it quickly, cover and refrigerate.  Many people blame the Chinese or Indian takeaway for their gyppy tums, but it's usually the rice rather than the more interesting bits.  When I had a catering business and did  food health and hygiene training it was one of the things they stressed really firmly.

Will do Hosta - thanks. He's still asleep. 


Have a good day 


Hope Wonkys feeling better. Didn't speak to her yesterday as I thought it better to let her rest and be looked after.

Chicken manure is as good a compost activator as anything I know And a compost heap with plenty of that in it shouldn't need any help. 


If you feel the need to add anything else 'recycled beer or cider'   in a bucket and diluted with some water and poured over the heap will also help. As you're in France 'recycled wine' will also work. Apparently it's most effective if recycled via the male of the species, but female will so if thats what is available.


some green leafy stuff would be a good addition to the mix you have.

How to cut small lawn ? - no mower

Posted: 18/12/2016 at 14:27

Do you have friendly neighbours with a mower?  Could you combine resources and volunteer to mow their lawn when they're away and contribute towards repairs and servicing?


Otherwise I think I'd rethink the garden - nice flagstones with creeping thymes in the cracks maybe?
