Yes, and am still mulling... I really am going to get a new phone soon which will enable me to do pictures. Sadly only this morning my plans to build an outside alpine bed have crashed as my contractor has been told to give up heavy lifting, as he has a seriously bad back! I feel very sorry for him because he is a genuine guy and a good worker. I will put this all on hold for now while I think of plan B.

Well said Dove and Verd. I have friends and relatives who send me very funny stuff over the internet. I pass them on, but not if there is the slightest whiff of politics, religion, gender, or  is at the expense of particular groups. If it offends , then it can't be a joke, can it.

When do slugs wake up?

If it's warm enough for plant growth I think evolutionary theory would probably suggest the slugs are following just behind?

Talkback: Front gardens

Posted: 28/01/2014 at 13:45

I think most of the blame rests with Central Government, which dictates the rules the local bods have to follow? One bad example is restrictions on the number of parking places per dwelling, regardless of the number of cars we might choose to own. Then people pave over their front gardens to provide more spaces.

Did I miss a birthday party ? I must be slipping. Belated hugs and kisses all round.....

Have now chosen stone for new alpine bed... plum slate , now waiting quote. And 2 lovely stumps too...

Lots of vegetarian cooking , with Nigel's help... risotto and lasagne. No not at the same time...

Hey, you guys, I think you have just set a world record for the number of posts on an individual thread on an single day!!!! . Probably a little bit due to the weather.

I, on the other hand , have just got home from a Burn's night celebration in the pub. a day late, but who's bothered.

Worst Winter ....... .?

Not really much point in getting out into the garden for a bit at least. Experience shows that we will catch up at some point. Remember last March was very, very, cold and we are not even into Feb. yet. I am relaxed.

Talkback: How to harvest sweetcorn

They are much better microwaved for about 3 mins., turned over, mw for 3 more mins. Lot less bother than boiling . Keep flavour and scrunch.
