Re: How do you keep amused in the winter

Making minestrone soup (or "Bottom of the fridge" soup as it's popularly known in this household. We always seem to have a lot of vegetables to use up, and with lots of Christmas socialising meals to get through as well as traditional Christmas meals, it's sometimes a welcome relief to eat...

Keep needing to log on

Can anybody suggest why I now have to log in with my ID and password every time I'm notified of a new thread, rather than just being able to click on the link and go to it automatically? Thanks

Re: How do you keep amused in the winter

I usually treat myself to arm armful of books from the library and bitterly cold winter days are an ideal opportunity to Wade my way theiugh them. Right now the garden is awash with flashes of green as hungrynparkeets descend o. Our bird feeders. I guess most of the easily accessible berries have al...

Re: Wildlife photographs

Another fascinating photo and ll the more interesting because these birds are usually such solitary creatures. Not often you see them together like this. We're lucky if we see one of them, let alone two!

Re: Don't be Gnome Alone This Christmas!

Aagh ! Well done! Please tell me the address for the gnome so I can send him a letter to replace my broken spike leek hole digger. I've only had it for about 20 years and the darned thing has decided to break on me.

That's the trouble. Nothings lasts longer than five minutes these days !!

Re: Early Winter Bits and Bobs.

Sounds delicious and glad you enjoyed it Pa. Just shows that you can't disguise the taste of quality food no matter which way it is served.
I love cauliflower cheese and it's a source of frustration to me that I can never successfully grow the darned things so all power to your elbow!

Oh please everybody tap your deepest wells of humour and keep it flowing.
No point in looking to Westminster for any light relief for the foreseeable future !

Re: Early Winter Bits and Bobs.

Mine's about 8 inches high now. Just planted it rather too closely as I didn't want to waste any of the bulbs I had. Now annoyingly I can't get into the middle of the vegetable patch to weed it without trampling on some of the shoots.

Re: Early Winter Bits and Bobs.

That's tough Pa when much of the pleasure of eating is enjoying the different textures, especially the crispy parts of roast meals.etc. Hopefully at least you can still enjoy the flavour of your home grown produce and the taste of some of your favourite meals. Hope you enjoy the evening at Wisley an...

Re: Early Winter Bits and Bobs.

i'm saying this quietly but so far my leeks this year are looking good too and showing no sign of rust. They were wrecked last year and I was worried that contaminating spores might still be in the ground. Pa, are you having to have all your food whizzed now to make it easier to swallow or are there...

Re: Please help this Christmas

Probably now one of the several hairdressers or estate agents. Hair must grow really fast around here to need so many hairdressers! House prices seem to have stalled though so maybe some of the estate agents will disappear (and become nail parlours or tattoo shops!). Oh for a useful hardware shop or...
