Re: Hen Party - all chickens welcome!

Seedling moved to the south west and them came back up here, but no allotment and we're no longer living close by, so in touch, but not so much. Whatever happened to Lizzie and Grock?

Re: Hen Party - all chickens welcome!

I have just read right through this - there's 10 minutes of my life I'll never get back :roll:

Just how much were we drinking to have come up with all of that? I'd forgotten all about OHs Tattered Cock and Fine Bag, furthermore, that I had seen the inside of it! :lol:

Thank you Monika :wink:

Re: Late Autumn Bits and Bobs.

Hi OH, I'm sorry to hear of your troubles. The good news is that when you do have the job done, you can be on here all day long :D I was thinking of the forum parties we used to have on here, back in the days when we were young - before you joined us, I think. We had virtual music from Prefab Sprout...

Re: Leek Miner?

Hi Stephen, we suffer from Allium Leaf Miner and have done for some years. Our leeks don't look like yours. The miner lays something like a small dark brown grain of rice, which then starts off under the first layor of leek and heads for the roots. Once there, it moves in a layer and heads back up t...

Re: Giving Up Meat

There is a book available called Humanure:Shit in a Nutshell by Joseph C Jenkins, which I'll admit I've not yet read. The companion book of Liquid Gold is very good...

Re: Oops - is this aimed at me? (Or you?)

He doesn't read this :lol: Even if he did, it would merely confirm his suspicions that I am trying to poison him. He's caught me scratching sell by dates off stuff before now and claims I fed him baked beans from 1996 in 2014. He was totally wrong, those beans were dated 1998! He's still alive and k...

Re: Early Autumn Bits and Bobs.

Floods here in Rugby yesterday evening. Our road was awash, with some people further down the road sweeping water away from their doorsteps. Our sunken garden was a couple of inches deep at one point. I drains quickly, but it couldn't cope. Sunday morning was strange, as I decided that I didn't care...

Re: Early Autumn Bits and Bobs.

Thanks Shallot Man, I shall give that a go. I always struggle to get sweet peas to germinate, I manage about 1 in 10, which is hopeless.

Re: Oops - is this aimed at me? (Or you?)

I entirely agree Stephen! I am sick to death of being warned that I shouldn't eat stuff, not by my doctor, but by the nanny state. "Unsuitable for the elderly", how dare they! I am on the long approach to what may be considered eldery (I don't feel it) and I am damned if someone is going t...

Re: Bewildered of Rugby

I'm slowing coming around to thinking this is something to do with Nigel Slater. I've looked in Kitchen Diaries I and II but they haven't helped, however the Christmas Chronicles do say how wonderful is pickled quince! I was over whelmed with quince last year (none this year), so I guess it's possib...

Re: Bewildered of Rugby

I'm still none the wiser. I'm sure all will become clear, eventually, but it's driving me crackers! I can't blame autocorrect, I wrote it in my diary in pencil!

Why would I want to pickle quince, even assuming I had any? :?
