What's the best book you've EVER read ?

Posted: Today at 15:18

Had to read it at school aged 11 but didn't appreciate it at that age, have read it many times since and always makes me smile. Gerald Durrell, My family and Other Animals.

Do enjoy the Thomas Harris books, Silence of the Lambs etc.

The book that took me the longest to read was Solzhenitsyn's Cancer Ward, to this day I don't know how I feel about that one.

Stored Spuds Sprouting

Posted: Today at 08:59

Newboy, I only grow enough for two of us, I don't have space in veg garden so I grow them in sacks I don't have any holes or damage to them.  By far the best producer for me this last season has been Charlotte. I buy my main crop spuds.

I think it's time we were shown the % votes by the general public. each week one decent dancer against a rubbish one in the dance off, didn't used to happen.

Tim only in his 64th year  He must have had a big paper round had him pegged as at least 10yrs older.

Love the remedy Clari, Pdoc on Mum duty so you are now our appointed resident medic

Soz not seen your undies ( not a good way to say that   )  dunno if wind blowing in my direction, maybe MrsGarden has seen them flying by. The wind doesn't know which way to blow other than to do a lot of it  We need a smiley with a hat on with a chin strap

Hope all have a restful and damage free evening, off to open a bottle of something white & chilled, lemonade of course !

Rat spotted

Posted: Yesterday at 16:42

I'm in the corner for putting down a rat station. If there is one in evidence they'll be more and probably lots. Mice at the top of the garden fine, live & let live, but not if they are in shed or seen near the garage, don't want freezer wiring nibbled etc.  I'll get my tin hat ready  

Stored Spuds Sprouting

Posted: Yesterday at 16:34

Newboy I grew Pentland Javelin & Vales Emerald 1st earlies, and Charlotte 2nd earlies. All stored in garage in paper sacks cadged the sacks from green grocer as I buy from him what I don't grow.

 1st earlies starting to sprout so eating quickly  Charlotte looking okay. Usually eat all before Christmas. If you've got a lot maybe rub the sprouts off until you get to eat them, but scoff 'em quickly  

Nut that's my way of preparing spuds for veg bakes
