Re: Early Spring Bits and Bobs

I did the same when I planted my Jazzy potatoes OH! He scared people with his openness about his condition a bit I think, but I hope we all contributed by accepting this as his way of coping & he never lost his humour for sure! Cheeky indeed! But such a willing contributor to the forum to welcom...

Re: PEACE AND QUIET

I don't mind it as I kind of count it as seasonal & expect the disruption. I prefer a run of nice days so it is over quicker than it has been this year though with the rain & cold; although there looks to be a run of better weather over the next couple of weeks so won't be long until more pe...

Re: Max/Min Thermometer.

Mines a bit like what Sally has linked, but has a re-set button. I won't be down until Sunday so will check which one but don't think it is ETOH in it, but bought off same site.

Re: New to breeding rabbits and I have a few questions

SophieBunny, I don't have a clue but just wanted to welcome you to the forum. Hold on for an answer as if these guys don't breed themselves they will still know or have someone with experience to help. We used to have someone on the plot with bunnies but they weren't pets (we have the old Victorian ...

Re: How many pots do you have?

Thank you Sally - a couple of them are cracked & broken but I like them so much as so fine & thin if I find a cracked one it gets the bits put inside the pot & I wrap them up in newspaper. Any ideas on what I could grow in the really tiny ones or were they just for first sowing in their ...

Re: Lockdown one Rescues success

Kayburton - that looks fab! I've not seen anything like that on the UK site, although saying that I have not looked anytime recently as it was a few years ago that smoking piqued my interest - quickly lost interest with the chippings on the BBQ type stuff I found then. Although still interested don'...

Re: Early Spring Bits and Bobs

Well nothing seemed too upset from yesterday's weather antics even though it was -2.2C in the tunnel. Plum beauty which was in full flower was nipped a bit on the outside branches but it has been in flower for weeks now & both the neighbour & I have seen the wee fly looking things all over i...

Re: Early Spring Bits and Bobs

OK! Now mother nature is taking the Mick! Rain, hail & sleet this evening - oh & a big freezing wind! Settling down now but about 4 hours of this so far. So glad I remembered to tucker up the plants in the tunnel & close the door! It was not nice but even less so having all the critters ...

Re: How many pots do you have?

Or just tidy up every 10yrs or so & put extra's in the big crate near the shop on site! (Not the 'dead' cracked ones). Strangely I found it weird to not have a huge collection of pots when I did that; & I did regret a few decisions especially this year when potting on more as Mother Nature i...

Re: Early Spring Bits and Bobs

It was freezing unblocking the drain outside the house today, but had to be done as would have been treacherous had it iced over. 3 houses in a row all blocked up so we helped each other as my neighbour borrowed some rods. It was gross & the culprit was as expected was fat, but I collect mine an...

Re: This year's new trial!

Too true Stephen! Our weather is so fickle & unpredictable but if you are lucky enough to have a bit of space can be considered a bit of fun with the hope of maybe success! I know the chances are very likely extremely low, so they aren't the focus & always last on the list for a drink or TLC...

It's true OH! The bigger the reaction means the bigger your natural antibodies ability to fight back. At the end of the day though those with lazy antibodies that don't hear the starting pistol will wake up quietly & get almost the same % of immunity by the end of the race. A bit of a tortoise &...

Re: Radishes

You can also soak them for an hour or so in ice cold water while prepping your salad & they go crunchy again. I suspect the ones in the shops are chilled from harvest & only leave the chilled environment when they go on the shelves. As most supermarkets move their stock fast they are still c...
