savory - summer or winter?

I've had a savory plant growing in my garden for years. These days I find little offspring everywhere, and like to offer them on Freecycle, along with strawberry plants, marjoram, parsley, limnanthes etc. etc. How can I find out whether my savory is a summer or a winter one? Admittedly it has stood ...

Don't waste heads and feet!

At the moment, in our case, this means pheasants' heads and feet. But the same holds for all birds and poultry. When you prepare a bird from scratch (if you have to buy it, unfortunately it doesn't come with that stuff) don't throw out the best parts. Use them to make stock along with other bits and...

Hungry Gap Mash

This year being what is is, we're still in the Hungry Gap though the spinach is coming on. We haven't even got enough radish greens to make my famous radish green mash! And I refuse to buy veg. So I let my husband eat our tiny spring cabbages, while making myself some lovely Hungry Gap Mash as follo...

Can anyone identify this herb please?

I bought a herb in Glastonbury a few weeks ago. It was an unusual one which I'd read about, and it had been on my wish list for quite a while. I was so pleased to find it! Planted it out. And now .... can't find any trace of the name anywhere in my, updated, files. I thought it was called something ...

Spindly asparagus

We've had our asparagus bed for some 15 years. This year, as always lately, a lot of very thin ones come up, along with, luckily, fat ones as well. I've heard it say that the thin ones are the female ones :wink: - is it a good idea to pull them up, or should I keep them and let them grow with the ot...

Re: 101 natural health and medicinal remedies

Re mouth ulcers. Speaking for myself, I always get them when I lack zinc. So though you can deal with them in many ways, to prevent getting them it's good to eat more shellfish (oysters!), peas/beans, yoghurt, (pea)nuts, whole grains and seeds. Meat eaters are less likely to get a deficiency, as it'...

Re: Hi from the South Wales Valleys

Fancy growing your own tobacco - did not know you could do that here.
We used to live in a self-sufficient commune in Mid Wales - happy memories!

Unhealthy is probably right.Before he married his diet was largly egg, chips and beans. His wife has perservered over the years and with much nagging (or is it "life coaching" as I've heard it called?) has finally got him to eat a least a few vegatables although the brocolli he eats is do...

Re: Hello!

My friends brother is also a vegatrian and makes it much harder work. He is very fussy about what he eats and the majority of veggys are off the menu because he doesn't like them, It sounds like he'd be unhealthy whether he eats vegetarian or not. Might a simple book about vegetarianism/nutrition m...

Re: Hello from Montreal

When I was younger I travelled to Montreal solely for the reason that the Lonely Planet (travel guide) said people from Montreal like to take their clothes off.

And was it true?
