Excuse me Verdun..or should I say hey up Verd, don't you fancy my apple pie ? I'd planned a large piece for you  Very nice it has cinnamon & nutmeg in, and crust not too thick.  Guess it's just not cake.  

If you could invent something...

Lyn  Will check out hose, do you have a brand name/ supplier ? Thanks.

I could have so much fun with this thread.

The start of the list:

A sensor type laser that detects slugs / snails near my hosta and zap.

A bleeper that detects when neighbour's cats are about to dig in my veg patch

An automated great bird that would scare off the sparrowhawk, who eats my little birds.

Something that would warn me that the meal is burning whilst I'm playing on here...Oh I do have a buzzer on the cooker.

Will give others a chance.  I've loads of things I'd like to invent.

Hi Forkers, hope all are okay.

Good night on the tele' Adam's Farm & Tudor.

Salmon prep'd in ginger, lime & chilli flakes. Potato wedges sitting in smoked paprika and garlic, just got salad to russle up, still got fresh rocket growing in GH. Knock down priced asparagus to accompany.

Now hold on to your hats..I have actually made the well threatened apple pie. Can't find a shocked face smiley.

Even bigger shock, I made two, so one for the log cabin, someone will need to bring cream / custard / icecream. I prefer ice cream, as pie will be cold by the time I get there.   

Have a good evening all..

p.s. Yes we will save you some Verdun, would be such bad manners not to since we are rent free

Not invented anything, but would love a GH that opened it's own door ( my roof window opens) so that in the Summer I'm not nipping down the garden in my summer dressing gown, hoping the neighbours aren't watching from upstairs.

Would also like a machine that washes, dries and puts plant pots away in the shed.

Also ( there might already be one, but I've yet to find it ) a hose pipe that doesn't kink, and is long enough to reach all the way down my garden.  

Worst Winter ....... .?

Bill, looking at the sky in your pictures I think you will be getting more snow later today.

Stay well & warm.

Just a Canadian laugh.

Not seen you on here for a while Bill, hope all is okay.

Growing Mushrooms

Posted: 27/11/2013 at 12:03

Dove I've looked at them and I don't have anywhere suitable to put them when they are growing. I can't remember exactly what they required but I know I couldn't grow them. Would love to, as I use lots of mushrooms.

At one of my previous jobs the first thing our manager did when getting a new diary was to enter the date that the trimmings would be put up, usually November. None of us could have that day off. It took some fun out of decorating at home.
