White choc cheesecake

whenever I've melted white chocolate it splits and tastes awful I wanted to make a white chocolate and raspberry tray bake.

Verdict....your new plants this year

Does it count if it's a veg? We had some Broccoli rescued from homebase for 50p we thought all were eaten and past repair, but suddenly out of nowhere we've got a great ruddy huge broccoli risen from the ashes!

And turn up I did. Still a distinct lacking of West Midlands folk I see

Maybe my ears were burning and that's what brought me back to post.

New garden new start... Fingers crossed

Were you fishy? Where?
It's been a good couple of months since I've been on here.

It's been well maintained, but not loved, hopefully we can give it a bit of TLC

we're hoping this little number goes into the sale http://www.wilko.com/garden-furniture/wilko-garden-furniture-balcony-bistro-set-textilene-red/invt/0343748 at the end of september, £60 won't break the bank, but it'd be nice to get it a little cheaper, as with everything in life

artjak he's a landlord that likes to keep properties as nest eggs and won't be selling for the forseeable future, but that was what our current landlord was like, he'd rented for years and years, and then bam market in our area takes an upward turn and he is selling. Needs must! It'd be a year tenancy with this new place, with a 6 month break should either party not be happy, I'd like to stay in more than one place for a year I must admit!

Swing seat sadly isnt ours very sad! The house was sold in June, then bought a month ago by a landlord with lots of properties, it's all cleared and finalised and now he's letting it. Quick turn around! He's done nothing to the place because it was in perfect nick when he bought it, canny really! I'll be very happy to live there and put my mark on that though. hoping to have some sweet peas up the fences, scented ones up the shed, or morning glory, not too sure yet, then small simple things in the borders as they're small and narrow, and i've learned my lesson this year by going for big and bold dahlias which are very very much taller than I thought they would be!

Something I love is that the window by the sink looks straight out onto the garden.

Will be keeping the pots we're so accustomed to using now for herbs on the patio area, a little nod to what got us into gardening in the first place

Top of the list to buy is a nice table and chair set before it gets too cold to sit outside with a cuppa.

PS just googled pheasants eye and it's not that it's lovely! It looks rather like scarlet pimpernel I think? Spreads like wildfire! Everywhere! I'd take nettles and dandies any day. I can control the bindweed at the allotment more than this stuff.
