Re: Chilli and Sweet Pepper

Re: Tidy plot versus a jungle

I start off trying to make it a tidy environment but when all the plants start to grow that’s it, they take over so looks untidy. I’m always on the look out for weeds and do like to have flowers as well as vegetables.

Re: Sitting and admiring your plot

I don’t have a plot as in allotment but I have part of back garden which I can see whilst doing washing up. Don’t have time to sit and look at it but am always looking at the various stages of the plants.

Re: Bread making corner

I made a loaf same way & ingredients as before. Dough seemed to be on the drier side and was not sticky as it usually is. I could handle it very easy without having to have floured hands. It did not rise as it has done in the past, as not very sunny today wonder if that could that be the reason....
