Re: Early Winter Bits and Bobs.

So sorry to hear of your loss. I know it is very difficult to lose a pet. She looks a very beautiful, loyal dog. We are really behind with preparing our beds on the allotment for winter. Everytime we have a few spare hours it is literally hosing down. We haven't even managed to put our back garden t...

Re: Fresh chicken ummm

OH we have eaten the rest of the chicken for our evening meal tonight and it was fabulous. Not dry at all and it melted in your mouth. I envy you with your facility to purchase local lamb. We do have an extremely good butcher here, and I do buy his sausages which are amazing and all his meat is bril...

Re: Food unwrapped

OMG Luckily we have never had the urge to eat that sort of food. All I can say is I prefer home cooked food. I know what is going into it.

(85% are kept in corrals like this) They have just explained that they feed their cattle corn, and because the cattle have come from grass pastures to these fattening yards and they are being just fed purel...

Fresh chicken ummm

We went to a Farmers Market yesterday in Grimsargh, Lancashire and bought some diced salt marsh lamb(which we froze) from one supplier (450g at £4.50) and a free range organic chicken. The chicken we bought from P D Willacy from Poulton le Fylde. Free range and no antibiotics or pumped with water (u...

Re: Unimpressed (sorry to be negative)

Well I am glad it eventually arrived. I tried to buy a copy of "I forget which month" back in September and my local newsagent promised to order me a copy from the supplier and it is now the middle of November and it still hasn't arrived. I think I might give up now as I can't remember wha...

Re: Why ?

Must admit that I find the green a bit garish. I agree with Fred. I know it will take time to get used to it, but "if it ain't broke dont fix it" will be a comment repeated. I am sure there are many people on this Forum who would like it to have carried on the way it was. It seemed to be w...

Re: Frilly sprouts

Westi I have just been on their site and unfortunatley there are a lot of seeds not in stock. Rather disappointing. Maybe we have to wait until after Christmas before they get more stock in. :!: Their sweet pea selection last year was very good.

Re: Frilly sprouts

We have used Simply Seeds for a couple of years and find them very reasonable. Particularly sweet peas. I think last year there were 40 seeds in a packet and they were really cheap.
