Re: Old Clothes

Not in the wardrobe but in the cupboard under the stairs I have my para boots and army jacket that I've had since I was at college in the early 1990's. My jeans from the same time are in a box somewhere, only thing holding them together are a few patches! Oldest thing I know I have is my tshirt from...

Re: what are you harvesting?

Hi! Still got some carrots in the ground but not holding much hope for them growing to anything substantial. Chili plants are still producing, but they're on the windowsill so are probably a bit confused! Right fiery wee beasties too. No idea what variety they are. The squash that was growing in the...

Re: Making Bread

I've only just started making bread myself, same as you Bramble I used my bread maker before! Been using the recipe on the back of the flour packet and so far so good! Last night I did the same recipe but after kneading I rolled it out thinly, spread pesto on it then rolled it up into a sausage - li...

Re: Gratuitous Gushing about River Cottage Everday, Thurs 8p

I really enjoyed the one last night, going to make those lovely chunky chips with our dinner tonight, they looked well tasty!

Daughter has recently requested that she's allowed to take the River Cottage cook books with her when she goes to Uni!!

Re: Ripening Chili's

We used some of our tiny green ones yesterday and they were quite hot! No idea what variety they are so probably not much use!

Late planting

Helloo! okay, we ordered some baby plants to arrive in June. Due to popular demand the arrived last week!! I think they may have forgotten our order but anyway. So, we planted things - carrots, beetroot and salad mainly. What are their chances? We live in the M8 corridor in Scotland and at the momen...

Feverfew - I think!

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, wasn't sure if it should go in herbs or health! So, I appear to have an invasion of what I think is feverfew. It started as a rather unsuccessful plant in a pot a few years ago, and I thought it had died off. But not there is masses of it all over the place! Comi...

Allergy testing for poorly teenager

Hi all! Been ages since I've had time to visit. My daughter hasn't been keeping very well of late. She has a couple of days off of school at a time. Her symptoms vary but the most recent, and new ones have been vomiting and a funky rash. She suffers from regular tonsilitis and her skin isn't great (...

Even though its the South facing side of the house it stays nicely cold in the summer and extra cold in th...
