Ripening Tomatoes

Posted: 18/10/2013 at 21:10

We've had a fantastic crop of beefsteaks, oxhearts and others - they've all ripened, bar one - no green tomato chutney to be made here this year - good job we've still got plenty from last year

Yes, that's one of the things I'm really looking forward to - prepping C******** dinner at my leisure.  Instead of making things ahead of time I'm going to be able to make more perishable things closer to theh Big Day, no 'fruit cake' but a chocolate roulade 'log' is one plan 

Right, off to work, driving cross country to Kings Lynn this morning - see you later - have a good day folks

Ideas for 2 spare old railyway sleepers

Afraid that they won't be any good for raised beds etc as the tar/creosote they're soak in will kill plants that come into contact with or are planted close to them.

Lost,stolen or strayed?
