Re: Mid Winter Bits and Bobs.

I grew Cylindra beetroot in 2018 or 19?...and liked it, I seemed to think it was sweeter than the other regular one I had alongside it at the time. :)

Re: Mid Winter Bits and Bobs.

Cottage pie a la Co-op today with Early Onward peas from the freezer. :) I have regularly typed of my use of Co-op veg ready to ping in microwave recently, it is just so easy..too easy....as on two recent visits that shelf has been empty again... Buying their veg for heating/cooking has been a most ...

Re: Mid Winter Bits and Bobs.

No snow here but mighty white frost. It's showing 0.3C on outdoor weather station now....so we're nicely above the suggested -2C as shown on Met for this location on last hour. Poor old glasshouse built by my dad in 1969, as I have often recounted. If cleaned and re-putted now (maybe not this mornin...

Re: Mid Winter Bits and Bobs.

No snow in this part of the county..there was some, I understand, down Spalding way for a while. Had some online "paperwork" to do this morning but did do one job outside this afternoon. I had noticed a pane of glass had had a slide in the poor old greenhouse here. I managed to get it back...

Re: Mid Winter Bits and Bobs.

I still wonder if I had planted the Swift at the time then they would have set into motion...wondering if it was some form of application to stop chitting in storage that would degrade in soil...or had they been over dosed.? but then wasn't fully comfortable with them so think we discarded them all....

Re: Mid Winter Bits and Bobs.

Do you remember years ago my posting on about some Swift that staunchly refused to chit.? I then bought another bag that chitted up perfectly as normal.

Re: Mid Winter Bits and Bobs.

No sunrise visible here this morning, it's staying very dark...

We did get to see an amazing red sky in the morning last week...I suspect it may have been the forecast early warning.....

Re: Mid Winter Bits and Bobs.

Re: Mid Winter Bits and Bobs.

You are certainly making good progress, Clive, must be very satisfying...sounds like your Father made a really good job of the frames, when he built them. It's all a bit of distraction at the moment...but yes, good to get a bit more done and in cold but, importantly, dry weather. Green Cuprinol was...

Re: Mid Winter Bits and Bobs.

I did get a bit more done this afternoon. Pathside weeding and sorting around the oddments that reside under one side of the cordon fruit trees, then weeded out the bigger of the two cold frames.. Amazing to think that my father built this frame in the early 1960s...it's a little tired but still qui...
