They won't keep in kitchen conditions. I would par-boil them now and freeze them (spaced out on a tray, not in a bag, although you can bag them when they're frozen hard). You can them roast them from frozen on Christmas Day.
Best potatoes for roasting? Maris Piper and King Edwards.
Someone's trying to swim across the Atlantic. Am I the only person who thinks this is of no earthly use? If he wants to raise money for charity he should do something useful. the money spent on his support system could be given to charity and that would do a lot of good without him even having to put his swimming trunks on.
make sure you have good tyres on your car and some Yaktrax for your shoes. - both really useful in the snow.
Some varieties of apple store well - others are best used immediately.
Apples which are soft, even a little wizened, are fine to use for cooking as long as they are not discoloured.

Tagetes are usually half hardy annuals. I would pinch them out now to encourage sticky bushy plants and keep them in a frost free greenhouse over the winter.
Good morning all
Cold and dry is infinitely preferable to cold and wet, and not too windy is good too. Snow isn't too bad if it doesn't drift. Maybe some cold dry weather will deal with a few slugs - perhaps it'll slow down the flatworm march - or is it 'slither'?
Are these Tagetes or Calendula?
It's ok Chicky I'm still awake - great finish wasn't it? But thanks for thinking of me ((hugs))
