Re: Storm Dylan?

Well we have entered the Hurricane season now, traditionally January is a very windy month, but we seem to have had hurricanes most of the year, does this mean they might have to employ someone as official storm namer, could become a full time occupation. I don't know about bus problems as we don't ...

Re: Gardening Indoors

Well spotted OS, it is a Valor heater, but it is for show only, the insides of it were rusted, a neighbour gave it to me years ago and we had it blasted and the Wizard has recently painted it for me, I stand plants on it. I may even go with a tomato plant, you never know, but there is not heating in...

Re: New potatoes for dinner

I must go and search for those potatoes I saw growing a few weeks ago, before a frost. I have also been growing flower sprouts as an alternative to sprouts and they are just like tiny little cabbages, my sprouts always seems to explode anyway so may as well cut out the middle man

Re: Anyone growing Satsumas?
