HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 21:43

I pinched out all the squash tendrils that escaped the patch( 4m x 3m) except the one trying to get to the dahlias over the fence, and two that are now 6 ft up a hawthorn hedge. I have over 20 that have set, currently mostly like cricket balls but three football size. When can I start using them? Do I have to wait until all the leaves die off?

Its been sunny here all day. Maybe hurricane balderdash has burnt itself out.

After saying that I'll probably find the polytunnel on the garage roof tomorrow.

Damsons aren't ready here. If anyone local to Notts/derbys border has 10 lb or so going spare...... I'd be interested.

I suppose you'll want malteaser cake as well. Good job my toyboys not keen on chocolate.

Plenty left, but can you keep those dogs out of my hangy tent thing?. Hairs get everywhere.

Good luck with that. I find damson stones are well stuck in. Damson cheese is good, simmer damsons in a little water until soft. Put through sieve. discard skin and stones that dont go through the fine sieve. Weigh pulp, add equal amount of sugar, boil until thick and set in small  sterilised jars. Great with cheese.
