Re: Staking POTATOES

I don't know about this technique as I haven't tried growing potatoes. But I bookmarked the site as it seemed really good and it's a garden related page for Toronto. You don't see many of them.

Re: Very useful left overs web site

It doesn't seem to like the veg that I've got in the fridge - french beans, beetroot and sweetcorn. I've got no idea either! :lol: :lol: There's always the old standby: Invent a salad! On another note, I went to this site and it looks promising, I am going to give it a go and maybe pass a link on t...

Re: The vistors from hell

You just can't credit how rude some people can be, can you? Last year, we had similar, although thankfully not quite so bad, visitors. They arrived, a family of 3, with 2 bottles of wine as their contribution to the week - which they drank themselves on the first night and moved on to our stash. :l...

Re: countryside pollution

All I can say is :shock: . Can these things be recycled or sent somewhere to be repurposed? That seems so wasteful.

Re: If your house was on fire...

WoW. I love the mandolin. I had both of my guitars stolen last year. Then a found a freebie in the disposal room. I took it. Don't know why as I haven't played in about 15 years. It just seemed right to do so. Anyway, I would take my I Pod, My box of CDs, and my purse----only assuming Minnie is o.k....

Ingrates. I don't know where you found the patience, Graye. I would have made it clear that I was unhappy with their behaviour and reminded them that when you visit, at least a modicum of gratitude is customary.

Jeesh, some people!

Thanks for the not minding my long posts, MW!

Re: I'm glad I make my own bread.

You know after reading that article I was left feeling bad at the presumption of individual incompetance. That is, afterall, why they must sneak what is good for us, into our food. :( Getting treated like some one who is incapable of taking information and using it to make the choices that would ben...
