Re: Mushroom propagation

Well I know they can inocculate tree roots with truffles, so I'm guessing it's possible. You can buy the spores in little rods that you put in holes of cut logs. I don't know how they'd mix/compete with what's already growing though. Why don't you see if someone can safely identify your current incu...

Re: Free food

I'm saying nothing.....well, OK I will say something. Well done and of course it tasted fantastic - even with budgie cage grade wheat, freshly ground flour is so much more nutritious and flavoursome than any flour you can buy. It might be worth buying a bag of wheat for "emergencies". You'll be grow...

Re: Identification help please

The leaves look like laurel. A quick look on Google suggests it might be cherry laurel which is poisonous. So unless you can get a local ID I wouldn't touch it.

Re: The effect of having to lose weight

I agree, Flo. I've lost 4 clothes sizes over the last couple of years-ish and nearly 5 (just bought some size 14 t-shirts - first time in about 30 years :cheers: ). Fortunately, because of my almost complete lack of fashion sense I still happily wear some of the clothes that are a size or two too bi...

Re: The courgette glut

I've recently made Courgette Butter. Great in sandwiches, or just melting on top of your cooked veg (or on a steak). It's a very easy recipe - grate, salt and drain your courgettes, then squeeze out as much juice as possible. Fry a couple of cloves of garlic in a good amount of butter (I suppose you...

Re: Free food

I've never grown any, Weedo - never had enough land to even consider it. I have bought whole wheat to grind myself as it stores much longer than flour. Having only a hand-powered mill I nearly killed myself making enough flour for one loaf! OK, maybe I wasn't near death but it took ages, mainly beca...

Re: Free food

More oats = less grass cutting? We've got a few freebie cereals growing under the bird feeders. Not enough to bother with though.

Re: Free food

That looks like fun. You should keep replanting some of it until you get a field full of freebies!

Re: Grapes

It's Moroccan, I think. I can take or leave fresh pomegranates - the flavour to pain in the bum to eat ratio is way too low to bother with.
The highly concentrated flavours of the molasses are absolutely delicious though. I even put a splash in my gal's tofu bacon marinade.:lol:

Re: Growing Melons

Prying allowed. It gave me an opportunity to boast a little - I am quite chuffed about it. I'm sure your T1 diabetes is well controlled but for those less fortunate keto is having good results for them too - although with medical supervision to monitor insulin needs as requirements can change quite ...
