Morning/afties and hiya to fidget - I can't keep up with the different times. I have enough trouble with ours!   

Been chilly through the night - think we've sent you our rainDove  - sorry 

chicky - at least you had a nice weekend with her - won't be long till the next one. How is Mr chicky these days - is he keeping you on your toes? 

Aren't your seeds about 2 feet tall yet? 

I don't see any middle of the night posts from Hosta - do you think he's ......had a sleep right through? I'll whisper just in case...

That's just what I was thinking chicky - I didn't think roses enjoyed extreme heat. Loads  of fruit and sunshine - just what we need just now Pat!

You must smell very nice JIMMMY  

a new half barrel (well perhaps not quite a half)

Do you have a nice spot in the garden for it Valerie? A specimen shrub or small tree would be good, underplanted with spring bulbs.

The mini pond has always been a popular idea - you have to make sure it's kept in good repair to keep it watertight

Hosta - that made me laugh out loud  

I start with good intentions, but invariably, the gloves come off after about five minutes. Hopeless with them on 

I do use them for doing 'lifting heavy, dirty objects' type of work.

My hands always look rubbish anyway so I doubt it's worthwhile trying anything on them!   

Rye pancakes, odd results, and cheap pan

Hi Leif - I'd guess the combination of the type of flour you used and the soya milk has created that effect. Think you've hit the nail on the head with the fermentation thing. Again - the rye flour might be a factor.  I think Dove would know the answer though as she's a real foodie 

As long as they tasted good though....
