Hi there. My LJ isn't just about gardening (alot of it will be once I get properly started) - there is a lot of day to day stuff, my occult interests, my cats and my daughter. Have a look (I don't lock my entries) and if you like it, add me. I am joolsmd. All are welcome!

I guess medlars from different bushes will be ripe at different times. Also, they start bletting from when you pick them, so maybe pick some 2 weeks in advance of picking the others. But your recipe is the same as the one I found so I have no idea why it won't set. My medlar liqueur didn't turn out ...

I'll be happy to join in - I have some seeds so will start this w/e. I grew some a couple of years ago and got a lovely small bush with smallish (but fiery!) chillis on.

How will they be judged? Size isn't everything, especially with chillis. Those Dorset ones look evil.

Applied for *cough* both of the veggies baskets. It may be worth doing a little thread about them when (if!) we get them. :)

Thought this link would be useful for any Yorkies out there. http://www.ylc.co.uk/auctions.php?zid=6&sale_dates=1 Lists all Farmers Markets at York Livestock Centre (they do veg too!). The site also has some useful links and info. Also, apparently there is a Farmers Market in York City centre on the...

Could you post the recipe here? I thought it may be a lack of pectin in the medlars (they need to be well and truly ripened) but the only other recipe I found for medlar jelly was just medlars and sugar basically. I have 3 medlar bushes near me and am luckily the only person on my street who seems t...

Plastic bags

Hello I just joined today, and the first thing I noticed was the 'carry-a-bag' link near the top of the page. I always carry a bag with me, and as it says on the site, it is sometimes a real fight to stop the shop assistants from giving you a new one. My question is, though, what do you do with the ...

Hello

Hi there, my name is jools. I would have picked that as a user name but someone already got it. I am reasonably new to all of this. I started foraging and homebrewing last year, and have just had my garden cleared for vegetable gardening. I will probably be asking a lot of stupid questions at the be...
