Thanks to all for chilli tips and warnings, I will definatley use gloves to prevent any accidential burning. Dove the receipe looks very good, will get used to using real chillis before I embark on using red wine as well.

 

Completely new to veg growing

Posted: 29/12/2012 at 16:45

Hi all,

Didn't think it would happen..... but will be having a go at veggies next year.

The plot will be 10ft(L) and 6ft(W) in a really sunny spot. I want to grow something easy and generally low maintenance but most of all something that I can go out and get and then cook it

I love sugar snaps but i find they are a bit too much money to buy in the supermarkets. Onions, I use a lot of so think these would be good as well.

Are these easy vegs to start off with? Any advice about what seeds to get? There's so many different types/varieties

I have a cooking question for you all I cook a chilli on a Saturday and although the vast majority of it is from fresh ingrediants I usually use a tabasco sauce to liven it up.

I've bought some fresh chillis (red, medium) but don't really know how to use them. Do I chop them up and just bung in with everything else or add them to the mince, onions as I'm browning them off? And how many do I use?

Hi Dove, I have a few little chimes both in outside and in. The neighbours just have a blank huge lawn but fortunatley their noisey, yappy nippy terrier is kept indoors (not good for the dog) but good for me

I love my sleep so if it was keeping me awake it would really annoy me. Although I have the ablity to sleep through anything

no more food talk please :o(

Sounds like a really annoying one. I do use Firefox but I also use a programme called Ad mucher.

Becks- I have been tempted to changing my provider to Sky but seems like the service isn't that great so might just stick with what I've got

Geoff- The Leopard,really enjoying it, tried an earlier Harry Hole book but couldn't get on with it

Dashed out and planted some white grape hyaciths, but now the skies have truly opened (again)

Hiya, had a real shock when I couldn't get on, glad that normal service has been resumed.

Been out to GC, came back with some half price and less spring bulbs, just need the rain to stop so I can get out and plant them. Though they might be a bit late couldn't leave there at the price

Afternoon planned with fire on and reading a Jo Nesbo book

nutcutlet, I know that feeling.

blairs- do you grow from seed? It's loads cheaper but comes with additional dangers
