Rabbit waste for composting

Posted: 22/02/2016 at 11:10

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. 

A Gardener's Hands

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. 

Plant ID please

Looks a bit like one - and it's got the little hairs - I'd wait and see

Collapsed on the sofa having eaten roast beef, yorkies etc  - there will be banana splits later, but we're too full to even think about them for a while.

Hope everyone has a good night's sleep tonight

A Gardener's Hands

Posted: 21/02/2016 at 16:13

At this time of year I have unbroken fingernails and reasonable looking hands, but very soon I'll have broken nails and chapped and sore hands and they'll remain like that until the winter has set in again

I wear cotton gardening gloves for as many jobs as possible, but they're not comfortable or practical for every task.

I've tried all sorts of hand creams to help my hands - which do you find works best on a gardener's hands?
