Re: New start at allotment

It looks ok , fairly tidy and clear. Just picked my last crop of late sown peas for tea tonight which makes everything worth while. Planing is the name of the game over the winter.

New start at allotment

It's a while since I have been on here as I have not had a good growing year for various reasons. I was thinking about giving up the plot as I got disalusioned by having no neighbours and extremely overgrown plots on both sides. Well I am going to give it one more go as there has been a bit more sti...

Re: First bread maker

Got some quick yeast from my local ethical shop today.
Going to give it a go using basic ingredients rather than packet mixes.
My hubby loves the bread but I think he could be eating a little too much of it as it is so yummy.

Re: First bread maker

Cheers.
I think the present was for hubby not me.
Two loafs , wholemeal and tomato and Parmesan from packets .
On a hunt for the right yeast to use so we can use flour direct from the Mill we go to in Derbyshire.
Think it's a winner .
Although my diet has gone right out of the window.
