what to cover a south facing wall with

Posted: 28/10/2013 at 19:05

Yes- mowing would be very tricky! Combining into a single bed would be a good idea. How about some trellis on the railing and let some clematis etc cover that whole wall area? Would make a very attractive welcome when you go in and out. You could relocate your trough under the window by the front door perhaps?

Glad you're ok MrsG and not under several feet of water or sheds or trees! 

Perhaps archie will have some tart or biccies for us tonight!

Just had a reply from Daniel re the issues with notifications/PM issues etc. He's trying to gather all the info (as it's not just one problem) and hopes to have an update tomorrow. 

How to build a compost bin

Posted: 28/10/2013 at 17:49


Most horses aren't bedded on straw now James mainly shavings but it all helps the mix so don't remove. Straw breaks down quicker than shavings though. Don't know about the lizard, except that if it's not a veggie I'd say no!

I think Daniel will probably report back once he has info on the different issues. I know some people like the notifications and don't get them which has been a long running one. I don't request them as I find it a bit of a nuisance- but I get them nearly every day! Must be something to do with the different browsers we all use too. Technology eh? 


Dessert apples - glut!

Posted: 28/10/2013 at 15:39

Cooking apples break down more than dessert apples so it just means you have lumps rather than puree if that makes sense. I would think you could do things like tarte tatin as the apples are in slices anyway. I've seen chefs do crumbles and pies using a mix so that it's not such a soft squishy filling. Granny Smiths often get used instead of Bramleys for pies as they're tart but firmer. Expect it's a question of personal taste too, Daintiness.

Hopefully things will settle down if the mods are on top of it all a bit more KEF. Wonder if  there's  been any progress on the pm/typing/notififcations issues though. I've not had a reply by PM from Daniel but he may just post on here so that everyone can get the info directly.
