broad beans sown in autumn

Posted: 10/12/2014 at 08:57

That's my guess.  Are they black inside?  If not I'd cook them and pop their little jackets off and eat them - they won't be poisonous.

I have the same condition - mine was also undiagnosed for years and years - my weight ballooned and I became very ill - it affected my career, I had erratic heartbeat, several joint injuries and has had permanent effects on me physically. Since being prescribed medication I've managed to lose a lot of weight and I'm more or less back to normal but as I said, there have been permanent changes.  

There's no way I'd go without my medication!  Just recently they tried a very small reduction in my dosage and within 6 weeks I was having joint and muscle pains and other symptoms.  They've put my dosage back up to what it was and I'm on calcium and Vit D to guard against osteoporosis which can be caused by a high dose of levothyroxine. 

Either Mick Hucknall doesn't have the condition very badly, or he's bonkers.  Untreated hypothyroidism can result in myxedema and loss of brain function!

If you click on it and then zoom you'll see there's quite a few little birds peeking out from between the branches

Good morning Ashdale

Did you blanch them before freezing?

Morning Panda

BTW I just read back - Chicky, that is appalling!  Borrow a baby from someone!  They have to prioritise babies (and they're less trouble than borrowing an Old, believe me!)/

Do you have FB or Twitter?  I think just the promise of a mention of their after-sales service would have them beating a path to your door!

Feeding birds.

I think I've read somewhere that it's tom cats that poo in the open and don't bury it as it's marking their territory. 

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Glad Mum's feeling a bit better Verdun - you're doing her proud  

When I hear about other people's siblings maybe mine's not so bad after all

Good morning all - I overslept!  Has Panda got my bodyclock again???

Awful weather up on the West coast of Scotland - Stornaway coastguard talking about the sea state being 'phenomenal' - apparently that's a tech term for the worst it can possibly be!  And a lifeboat's gone out to rescue a Spanish fishing boat whose wheelhouse has been smashed by a wave - brave people those lifeboard men and women!

Keep those hatches battened up there in the northwest!
