I'm finishing dinner with red wine and stilton. Have a good evening folks.

Kef, I grew the apples and onions, but I confess I bought the red cabbage.

Anyone done any gardening today?

I got the big ladders out to get a cutting off tge big rose growing over a hawthorn. I also took some hardwood cutting off Cornus kousa chinensis. They may not grow, but I won't have lost a lot.

I thought it was odd when he said there was a chunk of apple in, I put apple in with the cabbage , onion and balsamic to give a sweet sour flavour that is ok with sausages but not with porridge. Better than snail porridge though. I've just got to get rid of the onion tang now.

Humus rich, well drained. Mix a soil based compost with some fibrous compost.

I just made porridge. I put a large blob of an unidentified frozen object in that I thought was squidged up raspberries. It was cooked red cabbage and onion. 

Himself said he thought it didnt taste much of raspberry.

Just call me Heston.

Not a lot happening here. Himself got a new ipad, and I got some onion seed. I have loads of plant porn, it seems a new catalogue falls through the door every day. Sarah Raven takes the prize for the best illustrated, but at her prices I will be getting seeds in and growing my own. Chiltern has few pictures, more left to the imagination. More hard core, or as himself says, fifty shades of green.

I had another man to measure up for the kitchen. I forgot to tell him I need a cupboard with heavy duty locks on for the biscuits and crisps.
