Hi Pam, if I make soup I use a pressure cooker & so just add the pearl barley without pre soaking/cooking since am using 1&1/2pints stock. That is fine for me, but if wasnt using a pressure cooker I may soak, or pre cook it a bit, but depends on how much liquid you're using i'd think.
Have just spotted some 'poo' on patio. Bit late & cold for hog I would've thought, could be ratty of course after bird feed? Compost bin that we use for all the kitchen veg waste is still secure- ie no sign of holes around the base.
Trying to psyche myself up to do something this afternoon. Same every Monday, knackered, with OH leaving so early. Today I had to find him a watch as he's either lost/mislaid his normal one. All the 'spare' need new batteries of course- ooh, just reconed that the 'shoe repair' place next to photo shop will have new batteries, can try anyway when go up to collect OH's photos later in week.
Need honey toast now. Daughter off to work soon, so peace again. J.
