Poisonous raspberries?

Posted: 21/03/2017 at 17:52

Absolutely agree - no danger at all.


I've eaten so many wild blackberries growing amongst everything from Lords & Ladies to hemlock and water dropwort, and I've survived for more than half a century with no noticeable ill effects.


Enjoy your raspberries.

Fairy, glad you negotiated the roads ok - I've always said that I'm ok driving on ice and snow, as long as there's no one else on the road !!! 


More of a single malt girl myself - Laphroig and Balvenie Double Wood are favourites but my usual drink is G&T and I've just discovered Norfolk Gin ...... it's made just down the road and it's great - fab botanicals ...... got a glass on the go just now .... cheers folks

When we drive to Lincolnshire to visit MIL we almost always stop off at as little village pub In Fincham - they do proper pub grub plus they are a Thai restaurant and takeaway ... I could choose almost anything I wanted, but I almost always choose ham egg and chips.  Their chips are golden and crisp on the outside and light and fluffy inside, their ham is thick carved slices of local ham from the village butcher and the eggs are from a villagers garden chickens and so fresh and with such golden yolks ...... there's not a better meal in the world 


Good luck with the GP ............. has anyone ever left a message on their phone asking them to put a copy of their complaints procedure in the post?

LilyP  we have Clem cirr. Freckles which is similar. I love it. It's on a trellis at right angles to our sitting room window and for the past few weeks a pair of wrens have been spending a lot of time investigating among its green leafage and flowers.

I'm a big Johnnie Walker fan too - he spent every night under my pillow - that's where he was when he told me Otis Redding had died

No the posts weren't on Resurrected, they were about it.  I just forwarded everything to the Mods and it's been dealt with.  


I've been here a very long while and I have a tough hide .......but Ladybird asked the question and I explained what has been going on and why Punkdoc said what he did.


Now let's draw a line under it and move on 

Filling my first raised veg patch

Posted: 21/03/2017 at 13:44

That sounds really good LG - guinea pig poo is a fabulous addition to homemade compost and high in nitrogen so good for leafy veg.


When I worked, a colleague who kept show cavies used to bring me a bag of 'manure' every week - it's the one thing I miss now that I'm retired
