runner beans hestia

Runner bean,  Hestia are a dwarf variety. Too close to the ground for me. The slugs get low down beans, I dont grow dwarf french for the same reason. I use a tent shape frame of bamboo poles and have the runners and french beans up high.

If you have glaucoma, you should have drops to reduce the pressure. If they are not working and you are still in pain, go to the doctor for some different ones, or you could lose your sight altogether.

Pain in the eyes is always a case for urgent referral

Yesterday my sister got to the ward, to find dad had been given a roast chicken dinner. Apparently he had ordered it. As he never did eat chicken, i find that unlikely. It seems that the agency staff who are on the wards for the weekend do not know he has liquids only. My sister lost her temper with them, and then went home to calm down. I went at teatime and the message seems to have got through. However those nurses are not on today, so I took a red whiteboard marker and wrote instructions in large letters at the back of his bed. I wonder what today will bring.

Beef fat is harder. Pork fat can be messy. Don't use if you have salted the joint before or during cooking. Salt is bad for the birds.
