HELLO FORKERS! part two

Posted: 22/02/2016 at 14:08

Spring must be here ... I've spent the morning tidying the kitchen drawers and cupboards!!!

However, despite a bit of watery blueness up there, it's pretty chilly - I've switched the heating back on Brrrrrrrrr! 

Are these Pyracantha Firethorn healthy?

They probably spent the last growing season getting their roots established in their new home ... they'll start romping away before very long - I'd give them a sprinkling of Fish Blood and Bone around the roots any time now

  Good stuff!

New lawn

Posted: 22/02/2016 at 11:14

It'll improve when the soil temperature warms up.  I'm in East Anglia, and although it's not been cold, our lawn hasn't really been growing.  We've not cut it since October. 

Don't panic

Rabbit waste for composting

Oh I wish you were nearer!  I used to get guinea pig waste from a colleague, but she moved and I retired.  Rabbit poo makes fantastic compost.

Ha ha Fritillary - I saw your name come up and I wondered if you were going to recommend Udder Cream - it used to keep my hands in such good condition when I was hand milking twice a day - but a tub of that would be a bit large for my dressing table.

I was thinking of a big dark orangey/brown blowsy floppy oriental poppy a friend (now moved) used to grow - I'm sure the leaves looked like the pic ... but I may well be wrong

I do hope Hosta's had a good night's sleep - I also hope that he's set his alarm for 8 and is awake now   Sleeping late in the morning might cause problems tonight! 

Rye pancakes, odd results, and cheap pan

It was a natural fermentation.  Rye flour is often used as an ingredient in sour-dough starters as it has more natural soluble sugars than wheat flour which aid fermentation.

It sounds as if you ended up with a type of Blini.

Many of the keen cooks I know swear by these pans - http://www.greenpan.co.uk/uk/mission-7947.htm

Good morning all  G'day Pat

Think it's about 7C out there at the moment - or that's what my iPhone tells me - it's too wet to go out there in my jimjams.
