Oh Busy ((hugs))   

Pat, I've also heard very good things from the FODMAP regime - hope it helps - and in the meantime, yes - let them do a bit for themselves - tell them you've had a migraine

Hello again -  I'm back from the city and waiting to hear from the garage re the MOT etc.  as the garage is on the northern edge of the city I had to get a bus into the centre and another from there to home - thank goodness for the bus pass   While I was in the city centre I walked through the market and picked up some pork chops for supper, and also managed to get a top from M&S 

Now I'll see what everyone's been up to ...

 Obelixx    here is a link to my friend Ian's website and recipe for guinea fowl - I add chopped quince to the apple - it also works really well with pheasant. 

Must get ready to take the car to the garage - see you later folks ......

Obxx I love quinces. They keep well and just one will perfume a room. one of my favourite recipes is to use it in a pot roasted pheasant or guinea fowl. If you're interested I'll find the recipe when we get home tonight.

Good morning all 

Such sad news Pdoc ((Hugs))

at times like this it's hard to remember that there is more good in the world than bad and more love than hate  and it's so important that we keep showing love and kindness and giving it air and sunshine so that it grows - A generation that grows up without it will never understand the beauty of peace and love.

I love Monty & the guys, but miss Carol & Rachel. I would think that the extended time would have allowed for more woman gardeners. And I love everything Nigel & Nell. They make me laugh ever time.

See original post

 Carols been on most weeks. Rachel was on last week, and there have been two other women Gardeners with regular slots recently. The lass who visited the garden on the Cornish cliffs and other extreme spots, and the woman who did the mini makeovers in inner-city gardens. Sorry can't remember their names  and I'm posting on my phone so it's complicated to look them up halfway through posting.

Possibly the invasive thug Carex pendula Or one of its cousins.  I'd get rid of it and keep an eye open for any more.
