Gemma, you're right about gentle exercise for the back so long as you don't overdo it. My arthritic knee is much improved if I use it. The worst thing for it is prolonged periods of sitting down which is sometimes inevitable in meetings.

How do you manage to prepare food if you do not use sharp knives? A very basic skill I should imagine for any cook.

There is obviously a place for a cultivator, but sometimes it can cause more problems than it solves. Most gardeners know that.

The tools are supposed to alter the taste of the garlic, too. And not in a good way.

I always crush with a spatula or knife, pick out the skin and chop or add as is to the dish. Simple and you don't have to pick garlic - wasted garlic - out of the implement.

Hi Logan, like all conversations between friends the subject matter can twist and turn in all directions. Go with the flow!

Maybe the thread will return to the original subject, maybe it won't.

Mike, did you bin your hard drive with your computer? It is best to keep it or destroy it completely by a physical method (maybe involving a hammer) to ensure nobody has access to your data such as passwords.

Little Oak Tree

I would think almost everybody on this forum has grown an oak tree from an acorn picked up on a walk. They must be the easiest of all the big seeds to germinate. Many of them germinate from acorns buried by birds or squirrels for their winter food.

Your best bet is to liberate it from the pot in your garden or a local park or somewhere it can grow to full height.

Yes, it is a method of telling if Cox's Orange Pippin is ripe. Don't know any other apple that does it so well.
