  • 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.

                Hope you have a lovely time, and the Weather is kind to you.x
                • Morning all, sorry had to rush off like that, then forgot to come back. !The usual, don’t know what the Weather is going to do, it changes all the time, Daughter, assures me we are getting an Indian Summer next Week, wonder where that Phrase came from? 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]

                        Morning Clickers, wish I could say it was dry, but it is not, however, there is a bit of Blue, but also plenty of Grey! 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]

                        • Hallo again Tina :-) Glad you managed to get out and retrieve the veggies, rain or not! Have a good day :good: :love: :rose:
                          • Not me Tina – toms still very green – know I was late getting them into greenhouse but they could at least try to turn into red ones for me before winter – ha ha!

                              • Hi Tina … I realise that typing may be painful, so just short answers are fine. How are you? Hope you are managing to get into the garden with some dryer weather. Hope your daughter’s health is improving. HAGSunday :love: :rose:
                              • Morning Friends, no Sign of any Sun here, just more Greyness. Have not been able to get out for the last couple of Days, the constant Rain, makes my Ramp slippy, and am so frightened of falling again. Will have to manage today, as Daughter, has had a fall, and injured her Shoulder, so will not be up to water for me. Nothing much to report, so…[Read more]

Will be having a Baking Morning, starting with a Fruit Loaf, with a twist, had Orange Juice left out during the Fridge/Freezer swop, so am soaking the Fruit in that, it may work, it may not, omitting the Spice, and Syrup. Think…[Read more]

Got, not a lot done yesterday, as just wanted to sit in the Sun, and make the most of it. This year my Courgettes , have not progressed beyond Baby Stage, have had a couple of small Marrows, but generally, been very poor not in quantity, but in getting much…[Read more]
