I've been growing seeds for decades, I have yet to dust a seed with fungicide or anything else.

See original post

 Fungus, like cancer and other acid rich promotional,  moulds, do not like Alkalinity. It kills them.

Your body regulates acidity in your (second brain) The stomach.  Your eating habits do not help if you promote a acid environment.

Not sure what to say after this  

You work it out.

Kalette is a horrible word.   I bought them in Belgium last winter as Flower Sprouts and we loved them.  I hate sprouts but love cabbage and kale in nearly all their other forms.   I have bought seeds to grow my own but have to wait till we get our new veggie plot sorted.

 Just eat the top leave. They are fantastic.

  the reason we have no room left in freezer is the 3 pensioners I used to keep in vedge have passed on  and now I keep 4 houses going with veg.       

See original post

 Did you buy the new houses to hide the bodies of the pensioners in the freezers? What happened to the veg?

Great story.

Is your new home at the edge of a village, next to a graveyard? Is this your new start?

Tips and advice for burning garden waste

Kitty 2 says:

Hi Rachael, must admit to being a little confused as to timeline on pic1 & pic2 photos as some burning seems to have already taken place in pic1.

Sorry Edd, but I would strongly advise against "piling it high" and burning overnight. The position of your incinerator seems too close to the boundary Rachael, and any fires lit in the garden need too be watched until they have died down and put out safely.  

 Edd's advice to pile it high to burn overnight is unsafe and reckless.

I have a small garden Rachael, and would never attempt to burn that quantity of wet garden waste all in one go.

I do understand your concerns though and it all needs looking after, as you say Thanks

Next Christmas cooking job will be making some batches of pastry to lurk in the freezer for mince pies and sausage rolls to be made a bit nearer to the Big Day!!! 

See original post

Be careful Dovefromabove as I remember VERUN saying he likes to lurks after pastry! 

Leave a gap please.
