Re: Autumn bits and bobs

Oh OH! Commiseration's to Cook! Well bloody painful & debilitating is shingles! If beans on toast is your only recipe, now is the time to smart it up with an egg on top. It does look & feel a lot worse before it gets better & facial is the worst as the face is full of nerves which are th...

Re: Wildlife photographs

That is brilliant tiger - my fav pic!

I was trying to take a pic of something today to post here but the wee bee that was visiting was photo shy! November & a bee was still out & about was very surprising, but then the fact I have flowers still in bloom is as well!

Re: A very personal message

Sorry to hear that robo, lets hope the consultant meeting will have a solution that is not too evasive! Everyone on here probably knows someone who is affected or will be at some point & Pa's honesty about his alien has allowed others to share their journey supporting, hoping, worrying, all whil...

Re: Second hand tools

Welcome to the forum elway! The good thing about having a hobby is people always buy you things related to it for presents. A couple of years ago I asked Santa for the basic Wolf Garten handle & one attachment which was the hoe. Then each birthday or Xmas I get a different attachment or other th...

Re: A very personal message

Sad to hear this Pa, but totally agree it is about quality over quantity, powerful decision though but I expect liberating as well being in control! A bit more groaning at your jokes then - that will do nicely! I sincerely hope you feel more you without this treatment and keep on the site as much as...

Re: Dealing with windfalls - apples

I rescued the best that could have the bruised bit cut out & left the rest for the birds & critters - read the wasps found them also! I tended to avoid the area for a bit when they were very lively. What was left was pretty much mush & went on the compost. I'm not sure as have read the s...

Re: Autumn bits and bobs

Hi Stephen!

Cat logic? Maybe proper sunbathing can't be achieved indoors & they need the vitamin D or something? They stay indoors if it is raining, the greenhouse is for sunny days.

Re: Lemon Tree

Cheers for that information. It is not in the sun at all where it is, so I best find it another location for a start.

Lemon Tree

I've brought the lemon tree inside. It has 6 lemons on it & loads of flowers in various stages of maturity. Will these flowers continue to grow inside & respond to the paint brush method of pollination or is there secrets to citrus? IMG_3578.JPG IMG_3579.JPG I have failed miserably with all ...

Re: Autumn bits and bobs

Greenhouse cleared & washed down. I was prepped with the handy hand thing, no gaps between trouser hems & sock, & gloves over the sleeves & bobble hat. I'm sure the neighbours were confused as I did the spider dance in anticipation of everything I picked up & threw out the door b...

Re: Autumn bits and bobs

Try pureeing some of it & freezing that as well to use it up. Can be used for pumpkin pie, scones, more soup and pasta sauce & will take less room in the freezer if you bag it. Unfortunately my freezer is full of lots of the other stuff that survived the heat then came in bulk with everythin...
