Re: Fresh tomato salads in winter

You'll never freeze them & make them suitable for salads as they contain too much water & the cells burst when freezing Primrose. I actually found something last night on Pinterest with brining them which I will try for cherry toms. It says that the natural sugars in them mix with the brinin...

Re: Netting tips

Actually just got my delivery of 2.6m x 5m environmesh for £21.83 including delivery! (Literally just got through the window)! That is for the leeks as run out of a large enough piece so would have to sew 2 together & I'm not a good seamstress & leek moth slips in the gaps like cabbage white...

Re: Where to buy?

Pa! :) Being organised for once & got all these e-mail offers which clearly said delivery won't be until late September but sites didn't show them as in stock so then panicked, but ordered anyway for late September delivery but order was rejected - as out of stock! The thing is some showed in st...

Re: Pa Snip Enterprise Log Stardate August 20 18

Wow! Very fine harvest Pa - I am well jealous tbh! Brilliant crop on your tomatoes. I only grew Crimson Crush once & actually did like the flavour of the few I got, but I didn't grow them again as they got blight. A bit later than the others I admit but they were the last to ripen so lost so many.

Re: Roundup

It was on the news last night, incredible payout for the poor man. I think Monsanto will appeal & ask for proof that he used the product correctly with the right clothes, wind conditions etc. That would be hard for him to prove. Like you I shall be getting a wee stock just in case & some wee...

Re: Sizzling Summer Bits and Bobs.

We had drizzle but no impact on the crops. Still no lettuce germinated, patchy fennel, brassica's standing better but some are deformed & all are small, cucumbers in the net tunnel have just woken up, runners have huge seeds in them when only about 6" long with a strange red seam & keep...

Re: Wasp traps

They have not turned up here yet but one of the plot holders told me he just blows up brown paper bags & hangs them in the trees & they think that is a resident wasps nest & he doesn't have too much bother. As I really meant to buy one of these type of look alike hive things & comple...

Re: Netting tips

Hi robo! You could do that with environmesh as well as netting to keep the butterflies off the brassica's beds. A bit more expensive investment to begin with but it lasts for ages - 10yrs + & comes in all sort of widths & lengths! The site beginning with 'A' has it by the metre. It would be ...
