HELLO FORKERS!

We're going to leave the hedgehog where he is until we come back from our holiday - the tree isn't being taken down until 20 Nov so he'll have plenty of time to re-orientate himself

Which Cornish Garden to visit in September?

Damson fever - a little known but alarming seasonal disorder affecting the memory of fruitivores

Thanks - I'm sure we will

Pat, that sounds as if the bug has been tough on your live r- you need to let it rest and avoid fats for a little while - so make sure it's skimmed yoghurt.  Good luck

It's turned  cooler here with a little light drizzle.  NDN came around to see where the hedgehog food is kept etc.  She'll help herself to raspberries, grapes and runner beans etc while we're away   She took a big bowl of raspberries away with her - her parents are coming to tea - she's going to make them a raspberry trifle.  It's such a small world - we found out when we moved here that her mother grew up in Suffolk in the next village to me and her grandfather had a greengrocery business and her Uncle Billy used to deliver fresh vegegtables etc to our village - I remember him well

Duh!    

Freezing runner beans

Prepare them as you would for cooking i.e. top, tail and remove strings, then slice as you like them.

Then you can blanch them in boiling water for 2 mins before cooling quickly, packing and freezing.

They can be frozen without freezing, but they won't keep as long and the texture will not be as good.

Pat - try some good live yoghurt - it'll help your gut to repopulate with good bacteria etc and that'll help it to work properly
