Clari, I think Dove would have 2 asprin, no cider, gargle with TCP and go to bed with a home made hot lemon & honey drink

Me, I'd have the cider and the asprin and eat maltesers.

Hope you feel better tommorow ..hugs x

Grow Blueberries in Pots or Direct in Garden?

Posted: 11/08/2014 at 19:48

I have two varieties of blueberries in pots of ericaeous compost I treat them as DamsonJ does only differences are that I give them one tomato feed when fruits start to swell and don't need to net as they are right outside patio door and birds don't come that near

Bekkie & Fairy

My version of Summer veg bake ..well today's version.

All my own veg

New spuds diced and fried in olive oil, added chopped french beans & few baby runners, courgettes and shallots cooked until still all a bit firm ( that info for Bekkie) added good shake of black pepper. Left on the side.

Sweated off chard leaves & frozen sprouting broccoli from last year. Chopped it with scissors. Then added chard stalks and a few of my precious peas,  not got many  did a bit of a stir fry with it then added stuff from the side and some dried Italian herbs..

Made a white sauce and added some wine and crushed garlic.

Put the lot in a shallow largish oven dish, pour sauce over put slices of tomato on the top & bung in oven & cook until bubbling, then added grated cheddar & mozarella and put back in oven until melted. Served with fresh Greek basil which has a slight aniseed taste to it.    

I so hope this doesn't disappear when I press submit  cos won't type it again

Hi Fidget my winter sprouting broc' has a lean about it but can't be bothered to take netting off and stake it. Well not today.

It was fine and dry this morning , a bit windy, did 4hrs up the road, OH hedge cutting me weeding, and you might know it the minute we got home showers on and off.

I'm on G pig duty again until Saturday, one seems to remember me, or is just greedy the other hid when I opened the other part of hutch to make sure it was alive & eating. Doubt I'll be putting them on the lawn this week looking at the weather.

Veg' bake in the oven, a right combination of our fresh and our frozen stuff from last year ..will put cheese on the top and some fresh basil so it will be okay ...rather have a lump of meat but eaten enough of that over the weekend.


Got Big Courgettes. Recipes, please!
