Chatting on the Plot / Re: looking back over my shoulder
« Last post by compostqueen on Today at 00:26 »
We were only talking about the joys of outside lavs in winter  today as a matter of fact

I used to babysit at a house in a terrace and the privvy was down some steep steps which were lethal in freezing weather. I used to avoid drinking anything so I didn’t have to go.  The folks I babysat for used to use the pub lav before heading home 🙂
Windows that used to freeze on the inside.  Having to get dressed to go to bed 😁 I used to keep my jumper on in the bath   Happy days 🙄

Hang in there Goosey, it'll work I assure you!

I was very nervous when I first started my own blog, but believe me, it'll all kick in once you're familiar with the start-up stuff, which is a doddle...

Again, PM me if you want any more help!

i have to say I totally agree with you Goosegirl  and from what I'm reading there does seem a divide from north to south because I believe we have got more in the south than the north but as I said  that's just my opinion

but I really do think we appreciate things we have to work for and its always been a known fact that wages are higher in some parts of  the south than north and heavy industries have always been a big player in the northern part of the country I just think its so sad when the coal pits where closed ending generations of mining families that most new nothing ells but leaving school and working down the pits  :(

so I thing both replies really tell it as it is and was and that's what its all about working together helping each other exactly as it should be well done all ;)

Grow Your Own / Re: Have you ordered your seed spuds yet?
« Last post by Dev on Yesterday at 16:54 »
Got together with two friends to place our orders for potatoes and seed. Spuds are
       Elfe
       International Kidney
       Maris Piper
       Pentland Javelin
       Ratte
       Sarpo Mira
The spuds will easy to divvi up, but its going to get a lot more complicated with the seeds. I foresee a long winter of one for you, one for me and one for him. It'll be hell when we get to the carrots! We can always do it over a pint though, although things might get a bit more blurred.

Grow Your Own / Re: new potatoes
« Last post by sunshineband on Yesterday at 16:50 »
As a rough guide you'd get 10-12 potatoes per kilo. Obviously seed potatoes vary greatly in size/weight but that amount is more or less what you can expect. Salad varieties tend to be slightly on the smaller side in my experience

Hope that helps  :D

Grow Your Own / new potatoes

Evening All

                  I have been browsing the seed catalogues, as you do at this time of year, with a mind
                       to buying my spuds. The thing is, they they are priced by the kg, and what I would
                       like to know, just how many, roughly, do you get for a kg. I should say its new potatoes
                       I'm after. Any advice will be warmly welcomed. Cheers.
