 Mac'd's coffee's are drinkable when you are on the way to work and didn't get time to have one at home...sausage and egg muffin's also fill a gap between 8am and lunch time .

I like most of the stuff on the list Runnybeak apart from Avocado and have never eaten chicken livers, probably not going to now either.

I don't like scallops or raw fish although I can eat salmon uncooked and if I eat fish and get a bone in my mouth it puts me off eating the rest so although liking fish, will pick at it after boning before putting it in my mouth.   

My other hate is tom's that have been cut the wrong way with the middle core left in, you often find that in shop bought sandwiches so if buying a sandwich it has to be without tom's in it.   

Tomatoes

My tom plants in the GH, look alot healthier this year but not as many toms on the plants. Some have gone red but most are still green. 

The one's outside in hanging baskets have been very poor, they started to fruit early and have all but stopped now.

One of my chilli plants though has alot of fruit going red, which I thought was a bit early for chillies, I'm convinced it was September time last year before these started to change colour.

New allotment OMG...

Thank you nut. I've also saved the site in my favourites.

One of the nice things about having an allotment is seeing the different wildlife. The back garden hasn't had as much attention this year either and the number of birds which come has more than doubled since last year.

Forester2- I'll start picking some mini pop tomorrow when I'm next on the allotment. I can't beleive how big the plants are. I kid you not, they are twice the height of anyone else's main crop corn 

Extra soil

If you get muck from the person who owns the horses and get the opportunity to bag it yourself from a pile, take the top 6 inches off or try to take muck from the middle of the pile, there's less chance of you contaminating your bed with weed seeds then.

The heat from the middle of the pile may have killed them and seeds in the top few inches are usually blown there on the wind   

I've cleaned out my greenhouse

Well done nut, good luck with the cuttings.

Need to clear out my shed, it's 4 by 6 but there's only room to step into it, luckily the double doors are on the 6ft side so I can still retreive most things with a stretch
