Ah. I've done it in a roasting tray but I've a couple of le Creusets. Never though of using them for that. Not sure what I'm having tonight but it'll have to be something comforting! 

No chance of gardening here today- horrible outside. Curtain making and ironing for me.

I know how to live

Yes. Hope it doesn't fall on deaf ears nut

KEF have you done brisket in a slow cooker? I got one recently and the girls asked if I could do that in it. Presumed I could.

Making me hungry now

James...tut tut...

You'd best hurry with your bin or the wind'll blow the whole lot into another county!

Stacey- don't rise to it. Like the song said - push the button....

Hoping the wind doesn't materialise here- it's just raining. How come you've so many acorns lily! Are you next to oak woodland?

Can you secure the door in some way KEF so it doesn't take off and end in outer space!

And...pressing ignore now people.......

Oh Stacey - I hate when that happens. 

Brown shoots on crocus corms - will they flower?

hct - I have the same ones and , like you, they haven't gone in yet  I've just looked at them and they're as you describe, while the Snow Bunting ones are paler so maybe it's just the colour of their shoots. I'm hoping to get mine in to their bed in the next few days. The weather is definitely having an effect I'd say.

I think that's the case KEF. I only bought this one earlier this summer so it would have been pollinated when I got it I expect. There are males and females - like Skimmia. I may have to get another one as I don't think anyone round here is likely to have one.

Yes- I assume that's the reason Fg. I'm not going to do a taste test any time soon though!  

The berried trees and shrubs are looking terrific up here this year. Lovely to see them.
