Talkback: Front gardens

Posted: 18/12/2013 at 21:28

I understand that there are planning regs that force developers to restrict the number of parking spaces per dwelling… 1.5 each I think. Since most households have around i car per adult you can see the source of the problem. Yet another brainless politically response to global warming. No wonder our front gardens are disappearing.

This man here gets to do everything…. come on ladies, be honest, would you let your OH do all the preparation for Christmas even if he wanted/offered  to do it?

Hi Verd. How come you are in your deckchair? My rain radar says it's tipping down in Cornwall. Is it the lager or the dodgy cheese which makes you hallucinate?

By the time I get up and going all the early birds have flown the nest. Off to shop to serve again. Watching Arkwright, Open all hours revival on Breakfast TV made me laugh again. Thinking about it I am the only man to work in the shop! Must get some brown overalls. Still I look great in my green pinny!

I see a You-Tube clip coming on…. looking forward to it… it will be better than all the pressies put together.

Hi Verd. I think some difficult decisions may need to be taken, but not sure what. Will be interesting who they chose for the 2 remaining games. Hopefully some younger players will be given a chance.

Snowdrop bulbs

Posted: 16/12/2013 at 22:14

If you grow bulbs you could try putting a handful in a small pot to bring them on and then plant out the clumps that succeed. Make sure to keep moist and as they come up give them some weak liquid feed to boost the growth and which will then find it's way into stronger bulbs for next year. But still best to buy them in the green, when they invariably succeed.

I have been to Pensthorpe too, on a visit to Morston Hall Hotel, which is to be recommended. We went the year after one of the "watches', not sure which one, went there. Probably good for winter visitors too. ( you and the birds )

Verd. What a lovely post from you to remind us all that Spring is just around the corner and starting with you in the corner of this land of ours. If it stops raining perhaps we can go out and have a look for a few shoots of our own.

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.
