Strictly is back!

Kelly again for me this week, Jason gave a brilliant performance on the floor then looked as if he had been tazered in the interview. Helen Anita and Georgie were up there and Carol to go, that is of course up to the GBP we will see.

David today I have Silverside of beef in the oven, lunch 13:00 exactly bring your own plate.

Sungold Tomatoes

Posted: 06/10/2015 at 13:41

Best show of tomato's this year, still ripening and tasty though the skins are getting a bit tougher. A south facing green house and here in the NE of England we seem to have better weather than most. Having grown plants to give away then discovered the recipients would be on cruises the GH was packed out. Being on hand to open and close vents plus wetting down when needed helped to get a good crop from a mixed selection of types.

Phoebe aged five gave me strict instruction, plant plenty of those small ones, she would disappear among the plants and come out with tomato juice all over her top.

Jason and Aliona SGL, they got 31 top mark. My pick of the night again Katie Derham and Anton, a proper dance.

Odonnal and Kristina surprised me with the foot work though dead above the knees. Kelly and Kevin, Helen and Aljaz also took my eye, as for the rest let us hope they start dancing sometime in the future.

David, did I say something to upset you. I was agreeing with SGL who was saying forget the razz ma tazz and just dance, or are my glasses steamed up with the leg of lamb cooking in the kitchen.. Each poster has their own make on things and every right to stress them. Some of us want a dance competition some to be entertained or even both? Put that way and reading her post again we both agree with her.

i will now go and baste the lamb.

Star Gaze Lily, is it a completion or entertainment, the BBC wants the viewers to engage hence the acting up. To me as a once avid dancer watching the feet and body posture does mean the razz ma tazz gets a bypass. My dance for Friday was Kellie Bright though the music was never a tango. Saturday it was Katie Derham, that lady can dance. It looks very much like a lady getting the top prize but then we have the GBP from next week, anything could happen, I hope the dancing wins out.

Hello Shrinking Violet and thank you to all who said hi to me, nice to have friends.

A lot of discussion in the family they are all now into dancing after years of saying it was old hat they discover the joy of it. Why can we not flow as you and mum did they ask? Well children both mum and I learned at a very early age as do my grandchildren    It shows up with the celebs though it depends on what type of dancing they did, not all ensures them a place at the top, we will see.

Yes David, it is the best dancer on the night not the one your heart goes out to, they allowed Caroline to enter and cannot complain when she wins. There are a couple of trained dancers this year any bets as to where they finish.

Sorry KEF" DAVID not hard to get just circling like a white shark round Ausie skinny dippers, I appear when hungry.

last year my vote was with Caroline from day one, she was not universally liked and did go into the dance off coming back to win. That is what I look for the will to win you do not need be popular say's he who has been there. The dance with Pasha Saturday was not up to last years standard, Caroline was short of practice Pasha thinking of his nubile number cruncher, nice but not perfect. We will wait for the time they have to produce the goods.

Frank is still around SGL and KEV, after a month of year after the event tests by the wonderful NHS blesis em. All clear may not call me next year.

Strictly third league celebs this year having read them up, oh well we will not judge until we see what they can do, oh for the days when they did Valeta and English Waltz, we sewed our own sequins on, it hurt a bit until they told us " on the dress you fool" we live and learn.

Hotbed

Posted: 01/07/2015 at 00:35

We used hot beds for years, the ideal was a bale of straw in the base, plenty of very fresh manure on that,( we had horses) another bale of straw then top soil. It would then be covered and left for a couple of weeks to start working. It would gently steam as it heated and as we always started late February and it did have covers soon got up to heat. The straw helped the manure to breath and start working, the covers, glass lights, could be lifted to let in more air. Why you would make one now though five days is not enough time to get heat. I grow melons in the greenhouse but they will grow outside in a sunny sheltered spot, use fLeece on cool days or nights.

They take time, Monty must have had his tongue in his cheek when he made that poor excuse for a hot bed.
