Have suggested he uses dough hook on mixer, too noisy he says.

When we were thinking of moving, showing estate agent around he took one look at my daughters bedroom and burst out laughing. Deep purple walls and bright orange ceiling doesn't sell houses apparently. Decorater came and had same reaction. In end had to have walls lined - only way to obliterate colours!

It's just FloBear that our bread maker, that he has control of isn't very well so he decided to branch out on his own. Baker he is not, and it mkes him so angry. Just eaten one of lastest batch of pancakes - whoops - bread rolls - Does taste Ok but...

Bone meal or Fish bone and blood??

Such a useful thread. to a relative novice in these things. I have always just sprinkled growmore, but last year began to plant with bone meal, have also started to use chicken pellets on veggie beds. 

Reading this I am heading in the right direction but need todo better next spring.

Just top dressed clematis with bone meal.

Wood burner will I think provide potash but am unsure what to put it on and when. and how long it will store.

Jo Not doing too much!!!!

Wel Forkers I've managed to get a pole, no bends, joins or central fastenings. Not quite colour I wanted but this is fine. What is more they had tie backs to match. Good for Wilkinson.

During week we had note through door saying no1 were hosting a small wedding reception, they have asked guests to not park in our road, not room to pass a parked car, and it would run from 1 tomorrow until midnight. Fair enough, good of themto let us know. Houses are plenty big enough

We also all ahve larger than usual gardens. Marquee turned up yesterday and today portable toilets. Left us wondering just how small, small is

OH attempting to make bread again - I hope its only a phase!
