Re: Late Summer Bit and Bobs.

I'll get the grape & apple chutney recipe off my mate & post it in recipes. She rates it, but is a real foodie with 2 chef sons in the business working in Michelin starred restaurants in London & it is one of their (or their restaurants) creations. But it's still a chutney so shouldn't b...

Re: Late Summer Bit and Bobs.

Hi Primrose! My grapes are eaters not for wine. My plan was to share a few bunches, but they are small bunches & loads of people would not be as impressed as me. I thought the wasps would find them but seem happy enough with the cider & plum jam mush on offer. My friend has found Spanish rec...

Re: Late Summer Bit and Bobs.

Lovely on lottie today & I am feeling rather chuffed. After at least 3yrs of moaning Mr Westi has put a new gate on Lottie 2! No more going all the way down the back of Lottie 1 & then back up Lottie 2 to mulch, water or put on compost. Harvested the last of the Russets as it was a bit breez...

Re: How do you post a photo.

I find it is hit & miss, sometimes they turn out fine then the next time everyone gets neck ache as they turn on their side when on here. It is better since the upgrade though, but some times it just doesn't want to play at all. It seems to prefer cameras to phones still. I love to see other peo...

Re: Top 50 posters

Hi WestHamRon! 'Friends get together'? I personally don't know any of these people & am not posting & replying to make them friends. I'm just trying to keep the forum open. I personally feel this is the better mag & don't understand why the forum is so slow & limited, but your though...

Re: Top 50 posters

But here you are Stephen, so still reading the posts even if not contributing as such! We don't get many questions about growing now days as the mag seems to cover that nicely in different issues & from different sources. Now & again though a question is asked, but it's not what you know or ...

Re: Anybody going to Malvern Autumn Show

Keep an eye on it robo & hope it's ready or can be hidden before November, or some low life will have it away for a wasted halloween prop! I have hidden my Polar Bear pumpkins under membrane & netting hoping it looks like a pile of stuff. The only reason I'm doing it this early is when I wen...

Re: help required please

Hi! Welcome to the forum Edna! I would have liked my net tunnel to be perforated polythene but couldn't find it & so necessary on a windy site so I went for the net which is very fine & it is warmer in there but not by much! My suggestion is go on the 'A' USA site. Delivery might be a bit lo...

Re: Bucket list....

Agree Primrose! I'm not brave at all & take my pleasure from the simple things that don't risk life & limb. Hey it's a limited life span without mega heights or speed! But I have No.1 on my 'bucket list' - want to see the white buck in the New Forest, the rest are personal challenges - grow ...

Re: Top 50 posters

That kind of proves we are not inclusive, 50 people have joined & posted loads, dropped off & some came back & I kind of expect some more might. If some of 'the viewers' would be brave enough to ask a question, comment on any old thing on general chat or post some pics, share a recipe or...

Re: Pa Snip Enterprise visits Agricultural Show

Ho robo! At some point you will have to cut it but would be better to store if possible to really appreciate it in the colder months. When you cut it & take the slice the size you want place clingfilm directly onto the cut flesh. This first slice you cut off as it will dry & repeat the proce...

Re: Sometimes you hate being proved right.

There has only been one feed of runner beans for us so far this year & not that tasty. My plants sulked in the heat so I re-sowed direct & these flowered but the beans set big seeds straight away so I had 2 or 3 large seeds and then the rest of the bean was saggy, then they got black mildew ...
