.... Don't throw anything at me but I'm not one of Sir Tom's biggest fans

Neither was I, but the stuff he's recorded recently really is very very good indeed, and unlike any of his earlier stuff - Proper music

Look like dahlias - are they getting enough sun?


Strange garlic

Garlic needs to experience low temperatures to initiate the dividing into cloves.  Perhaps your garlic just didn't get cold enough this year - different varieties might need different temperatures. 

Use it for roasted garlic - my mouth is watering already

Looks like a Hart's tongue fern - I love them and have several types.

Garden produce recipes

Just put the sliced apples and blackberries in a pan with a very little water and sugar to taste and simmer gently until beginning to soften.  Put into the dish and allow to cool.  Top with the crumble mix, cover with foil, clingfilm and freeze. 

When you have your oven working remove the dish from the freezer, allow it to come to room temperature then cook as normal.

Hello Pdoc - good to see you - glad you're finding positive things to keep yourself occupied - the other stuff doesn't do anyone any good ((hugs))

Watched Sir Tom on Jools Holland the other day - brilliant, better than he's ever been - trying to stop myself buying his new album Long Lost Suitcase - it's on my wish list for Father Christmas
