Hi KEF, Stacey and Clarington (who's obviously speechless about something ).

Yes, there's a lot of difference between a potted and a pot grown Christmas tree isn't there?  

LO is gorgeous 


Rotting Onions

Posted: 08/12/2013 at 07:17

My brother the big veg farmer grows onions for supermarkets - he said he's found that onions with a more oval shape, pointy at the top, store much better than those with 'shoulders'.  When buying onions loose in the supermarket I always select for that shape and it seems to work.  

He also said that in his experience red onions do not store as well as white ones - they seem to hold on to much more moisture.

I've been eating beef casserole and drinking Adnams bitter   I'll make a huge Dauphinoise for tomorrow, but if you want pork chops you'll have to bring your own, I only bought two and OH wants one of them. 

I think I might be falling asleep on the sofa again soon

I've been very happy with some Joseph Bentley tools I've bought over the past few years.  Good ash handles, stainless steel blades, sound traditional designs - very happy with them 

Pulmonaria! :)

I grow pulmonarias in a mixed shady bed with Dryopteris ferns and wild primroses - backed by rambling roses, honeysuckles and clematis which (hopefully),  will take the attention later in the season when the pulmonarias die down.

Pulmonaria! :)

Sissinghurst White is gorgeous.  It seems a little less robust in my garden than some of the others.
