Oh dear Geoff, take it easy today and get the kitchen staff to bring you nourishing little snacks, and plenty of drinks, not  the alcoholic kind, hope you are soon fighting fit.

Shopping day today, visit Mum, visit daughter who has just got back from her hols in Portugal, OH hoping for a bottle of port will be handy for C***********.

Having a rest from the garden as we had some overnight rain, but not the strong wind some of you have had. Might get some bulbs into their pots later if I have time.

Thanks for the pepper suggestions, will get onto Delias site to investigate.

Have a nice day.

I am looking for recipes for sweet peppers my OH doesn't like them so why we grow so many I don't know.

We seem to give more away than we eat, and this year they have done particularly well.

Always feel a bit sad when it gets to this time of year, although the trees are starting to look spectacular with the Autumn tints.

Hot water bottle in, it's a bit chilly tonight, and the weatherman said we could have a touch of frost. so I'm of to The Land of Nod.

Night folks.

Hi everyone.

Nr Lincoln.

Been a glorious autumn day here, sunny and reasonably warm.

Green house cleaning finished and I assisted OH to insulate it this afternoon, when I say assist, I had to get in all the awkward places he can't reach but at least it's done. Now to get everything back, minus the accumulated rubbish.

Hi everyone.

The last few peppers and chillies Greenhouse all clean and ready to be bedded down for the winter. Had a couple of good days in the garden as weather has been lovely. Not so good fore casted for tomorrow so will catch up on indoor jobs.



Just catching up with your posts about pee and compost. I saw that programme last night, didn't know urine could be so interesting, annuals on compost heap, must get OH to "activate" it before tea.

Tea tonight is Chicken Korma a la Loyd Grosman.

Like the idea of C smilies, do you think Daniel will be able to oblige.

Hello to all our new forkers.

Have had to use spell checker a lot tonight, no control over my fingers, must need cake

I bought some paperwhite last weekend after seeing MD planting them for Xmas, I bet the sales of them have shot up as a result.

Beautiful morning here, the box says Sunny/clear, so they are right!

Cosmos and other annuals are going on the compost heap today, and I too have got bulbs to plant, mainly in pots as I have loads in the garden already.

Have a good day whatever you're up to.

Hi everyone.

Lovely morning here in Lincolnshire, we are forecast a rain free day, so hoping to get cosmos and other annuals consigned to compost heap.

Jean- I water all my containers that I want to keep over winter with Pravado vine weevil killer, it kills the vine weevil grubs that are lurking in the soil, and so far I have been lucky.

Geoff, Goose taste very nice, but there isn't a lot of meat on them, they look huge before they are cooked, nice with apple or gooseberry sauce, but very expensive. Never tried wild goose though, be a job to catch I would imagine

Must be the day for haircuts, me and OH have been to see the lovely Claire in the village salon. 

Gammon steak, grilled tomatoes, chips and peas for tea this evening.

When we did our supermarket shop last week I had a look at the bacon grill in tins as was mentioned in previous postings, looked alright, that is until you read the ingredients, which included and I quote, "Mechanically recovered chicken" no thanks..

I have high blood pressure along with other things, my OH on the other hand has normal blood pressure, normal cholesterol, he eats all the things you shouldn't, chips, chocolate, anything sweet, pork pie, the list goes on. I on the other hand have alway been careful what I eat, it's just not fair
