what car would Jesus drive?

Didn't Jesus not own anything? He went on boats, but he didn't own one, and he and his disciples walked everywhere. Granted there was not much choice in those days, and even the donkey ride into Jerusalem was on a borrowed ass. I reckon he would still be walking. So I agree with Chickpea, Wulf and S...

Elderberry syrup for colds

Hi the fee fairy. Sorry it took so long, my sons hog the computer now school has finished! Here is the recipe. I find the cold cure effect is greatly enhanced for adults if it is added to a large glass of chilled champagne or white wine and sipped slowly in a hot bath. 1 Put about 2 quarts of berrie...

Pips

Hi Ina
Thanks for the welcome!
I named my self after the spotty dog on the woodentops. I am afraid we don't have room for a farm, but I do my best with a 30 x 90 ft garden by the station and a stiff legged :duckie: cat.

Elderberrries

I use my elderberries for a cold cure syrup. I have given it to my kids since they were tiny. I got the recipe from my aunt in Hereford, and she got it from her great Aunt etc. So far as I know nobody has died of it yet, and we don't get many bad colds! I found the same syrup for sale at a health sh...

lemons

I grew my lemons just the same, at the office party. They came out of my G+T so maybe that helped. It was 29 years ago and they have been fruiting for 2 years. The first slice was a real occasion, the kids all watched me cut it up! I don't think they believed it would be proper inside as it was olde...

lemons again

Good evening Wombat Thanks for your suggestions. Sadly the white stuff isn't fluffy it looks more like limescale you get in your kettle than anything else. I am really more worried about the little new leaves and shoots that are dying back. Most of the leaves look nice and fresh and healthy, but som...

I'm new and I have sick lemons!

Hi everyone. I just found this site looking for a lemon diseases site. I see there are people from all over so maybe someone can help. I grew these two lemon trees from pips 28 years ago. They are now 5ft tall and fruiting. This winter I let my paraffin heater burn out and they lost most of their le...
