  • Morning Clickers, the Sun is shining, but it is bitterly cold, had to have a strict Talk to myself, to get out from my snug Duvet, this Morning. Got a new Gardening Journal for Xmas, all White Pages waiting to be written on, this time of year finds me getting excited about a few Weeks time, and although have bought all my Seeds, am still poring…[Read more]

    The Programs were rubbish, except for Morecombe and Wise, they don’t make them like that any more!
    • Morning all, and a belated Happy Xmas, always enjoy Boxing Day, more, anyway, Floor littered with Boxes, not all completely empty, just a lazy Vibe. Hope Santa was good to you, he certainly was to me! Two eldest Sons, bought me a new Bird Station a big Stone Frog for the Garden, really happy, as love Frogs, and have Froggy everything. Just…[Read more]

      Morning all, grey here as usual, but might brighten up later. Made a Dummy run Xmas Cake yesterday, as needed to get the Measure of my new Oven. Did not have a couple of things, like soft Brown Sugar, Orange and Lemon. found my mixed Peel had gone hard, so had to dump it, still had the main constituents, so as it was really to test the Oven, went…[Read more]

      • I think that I would enjoy either of your cakes Tina ;-) … yum-yum Good luck with the shopping…I think that we are all going to need it as I hear that the hoarders are out in force again :-( HALD :love: :rose:
          • Lovely to see you again Tina and that you are back to your baking. I like sherry, shame I’m not nearer :lol:
        • Morning all, Grey but clear out, not that it affects me, having said that fear that I am getting depressed, and never been in my Life before. Going to do what Anne, suggested, and get a couple of Indoor Plants. Have already got a Ficus Elastica, and some small Succulents have grown from Seed. Had a tussel with the OT they decided to move my…[Read more]

          Yes, was thinking about a couple of Plants, Anne, have a Ficus Elastica, lost most of it’s Leaves during it’s Spell in the Garden, but coming back now.
            • Hallo Tina :-) I am nurturing pots’npots of [so called] Polka Dot plants … a tradescantia. I bought a trio of colours 6 months ago in a pot, really pretty, and they…

              It is obvious from the start, that your Bank would send you a Letter, not Phone you. They are certainly getting clever, is there such a word as cleverer?
              • Morning all, sorry not been on, but have nothing much to write about, so will only be popping in every Week or so now. Am not allowed Visitors, the Weather is not decent enough for me to go out into the Garden, therefore, nothing to write about. Add to that it is difficult to write, as have to use my left Arm to hold my right Hand to type. Am not…[Read more]

                • Hi Tina … Have an inkling of how you feel, as have been isolating for the past six months. It must be soo frustrating not being able to easily type … I feel for you. It’s lovely to ‘see’ you when you manage it though …. roll on the Spring, and meanwhile indoor plants :good: :love: :rose:

                      • Lovely to hear from you whenever you can manage Tina. Dreadfully frustrating for you not being able to get out to the garden, especially at the minute when you have to isolate. Take care of yourself and stay safe. :rose: :clover:
                        • Always good of you to pop in and say hello, Tina! Take care :-)
                          • Hi Tina, sorry your struggling, have you possibly got voice activated words on your computer? My phone has this, it’s useful for sending texts when you can’t use your hands? I hope you can have visitors soon 🥀🥀🥀
                          • Morning all, it seems a lovely bright Morning, but have been kidded before! Got my new Cooker, installed, just in time, as am back to not being allowed Visitors. Son, was coming to fit Splashback this Morning, but he is not allowed now. Made the worst Scones in the World, to test it, forgot to put extra Baking Powder in, and Scones do need it,…[Read more]

                          • Sorry, sorry, sorry! have not been on, but one thing after another. Had a nasty Stomach Bug, and it hung on and on, and if anything is going to make you miserable, it’s that. In between, been using the Apples, and Tomatoes, in Chutney, then my Oven conked out! So had to get a new One. I have been dozing when I need to be working, and that’s the…[Read more]

                            Lettuce will grow outside in Winter, Cilla, never heard of the Lettuce you grow, what type are they.?
                              • They are a hearting lettuce, a lovely green tinged with red. I tend to just pull off a few leaves for a salad as there are only two of us.
                              • Morning All, seems like a better Day, but have been kidded before, but have Plans for Outside, and Inside, so see what happens. Need to pick Apples, in case we get a spell of bad Weather. Have put it off, as had a very good Year, and even after sharing them, storage will be a Problem. Friend, is bringing me Bramleys on Friday, get them every Year,…[Read more]

                                • Your kitchen is a veritable haven of delights by the sound of it Tina :-) Have a good day, and be safe :good: :love: :rose:
                                    • Hi Tina. Can I come and live you please…..all those goodies sound wonderful :-) I grow Merveille de Quatre Saisons lettuce and they survived outside all winter last year so I expect you could grow them inside. Salad leaves, mizuma and rocket for some bite would probably grow inside as well. It would be fun trying.

Might make Chutney today, but am a bit short of Vinegar, however , have an Order coming…[Read more]

                                                    Morning Clickers, Sun, is shining for a change, but it is cold, very Autumnal. Hope to get Outside for a bit, just to get a bit of fresh Air. Brought my Green Tomatoes in yesterday, as frightened of a sudden Frost, and losing them all. The bigger Tomatoes are under my Bed in a Cardboard Box, and the smaller Ones will go for Chutney. Have bought…[Read more]

                                                        • Sorry to have rushed off so suddenly, but Daughter, phoned from Markies, asking if I wanted anything, is the Pope Catholic! Had to think on my Feet, well, on my Bum, in this Case, and when I get flustered, can’t think at all! Anyway, managed to get a small Order in, you don’t want to ask for too much, but could not think of anything but Swiss…[Read more]

Have got a Bag of Veggies that I picked yesterday. Celery, is massive, Peas, and Beans, and Salad, only one thing missing, Tomatoes, they are still Green, turning to a bit of Orange, everybody else seems to have big fat Red…[Read more]
