Twisty bits are just as tasty 1Runnybeak1. We do all want perfectly shaped veg though. 

I grow for show and look for perfection within the rules.

I know that they have to be perfect to win £ so am I putting a image of perfect veg being the only thing we can eat? Bigger is not better when it comes to our own food supply.

If you watch the new Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall show 'food on waist.'  then yes we are. ( Yes I know he is just another rich kid,trying to make a difference but he has our principals. I hope and actually has tried these things.) He is right in asking who do we more depend on? The farmers or the suppliers of there food.

It makes you think.

Got woken before 5am by HRH 

I think you should tell Her Royal Highness Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall to have better manners and not misbehave over there! 

We are expecting a bright but cold weekend 3°C or 4°C top, just like this summer up north apparently.

Good to hear your computer is back up and running, Dove . I would love to know what the answer was( I had some idea) with all the certificate issues  but I just presume it was a update or download that caused it.

Good to know LO sorted it out for you and all is OK.

We do forget that sometimes when the internet is down, the rest of the computer still works. But who uses that bit!!!!

They say older people are technophobic, but my Dad can't live without his computer.
He's on Life Support. lol.

I just logged on to my new laptop computer.

I should really avoid taking new items to the loo first. though.

My son broke his Apple computer today and had the audacity to ask me to buy him a new one.

I said, "Apples don't grow on trees you know " He is only 5 so will live and learn I hope!
Is it just me......or does anybody else find pressing F5 refreshing.

Turnips and swedes

All tops with no roots or small roots is usually caused by planting too close or by not thinning plants. Excessive nitrogen can also contribute to extensive top growth at the expense of root growth.

It looks to have some life in it so I would pot it on in some new compost and see what happens. Nothing to lose by doing this.

OH has just handed me a frozen apple turnover and pointed out the fact that it has  "Do Not Turn Upside Down" written on the underside. Talk about confussed.

New allotment- what's this tree?

Posted: 15/11/2015 at 16:49

It says 274D on the label!

Too difficult to tell from that pic Charlotte2311. It does look like a fruit tree of some sort. 

Is there any fruit left on the tree or around it? Can we also have a close up pic of the leaves please.

Need Help with my Avocado Plants

Posted: 15/11/2015 at 16:40

No need to clean the roots, just pot it on. The soil should always be moist, but not saturated. When the stem reaches 12 inches tall, pinch out the top two sets of leaves. This will encourage the plant to grow side shoots and more leaves, making it bushy. Each time the plant grows another 6 inches pinch out the 2 newest sets of leaves on top.

Not sure if it will ever fruit but it is worth a go and you might have some in about 3 years or more..
