If she's allergic to dairy, you will have to use very high cocoa content chocolate. Most  chocolate contains dairy., or get a good cocoa powder.

You could make cocoa crispy  refridgerator cakes, with rice krispies, golden syrup, cocoa.

We're in East Midlands , but are planning an expedition west.

What is this plant? Could it be a weed?

Posted: 14/08/2014 at 02:21

Yes, I think you're probably right 

A caper spurge, a type of euphorbia, also reputed to deter moles.

As with all euphorbias, wear gloves to handle as the sap causes skin to be burned easily in the sun, causing blisters.

You have obviously got it sussed, pushkin.

Lots of hard work ahead, but I hope you reap the rewards, and wish you good luck .

If the land grows good weeds, at least you know it is fertile.

Cloudy here, and too much light pollution from Nottingham and Derby to see much.

I did enjoy lying on a beach in the maldives, late one night after a few too many pina coladas, watching shooting stars and the milky way.

 I seem fated sometimes. I went on the nightime "sounds of silence"  meal and a talk about the stars at Ayers Rock.  It rains about once a year. Guess which night we went???

Yep, an expert talking about the stars which were obscured by cloud and spitting with rain. Camp fires needed to keep warm!!!   If we hadn't paid so much for it , it would be funny.
