Chatting on the Plot / Re: What's for tea? 2018

I defrosted a haddock fillet and made a cheese sauce for it, peas, carrots and cauli to go with it  :)

One or two of our Euonymus came from the Chelsea Flower Show (ahem ) back in the seventies...

It's a forgiving shrub and will rediscover its former glory however you bash it down, so do what you need to do, and as other chums here say, it'll look a bit grumpy for a while, but it won't be for long!

We love them, they are just gorgeous colour and shape in odd places here and there in the garden!

Might even go out there for a few more cuttings now you mention it...

I cut one of mine right back, leaving nothing but a few 2" think stumps  8" long,  it was fine if a little scruffy for a season. If you're worried take some cuttings now - they root very easily and if it doesn't go well just replace the original.

Don't judge me until you've tried it. 

It's badly fried eggs with stewed tomato. Even sausage, bacon, mushrooms and black pudding couldn't save it  ::)

I had the chicken and chorizo with couscous, it was rather meh - lacking a veggy ( like a courgette  :nowink: ) and taste in general.  My ability to cook really has gone to the dogs. Mind you the waitrose chicken vindaloo I had last night was shameful and the notion it would serve 2 even worse.

I suspect there will be a grilled cheese and onion sandwich in my not too distant future.

It is just from the communal lawns behind us, NO weedkiller present!

Marvellous, Goosey!

He had a beautiful voice!

I'd love to put a song by Nat King Cole up here too, would 'Ramblin' Rose' have been played?. They both had fabulous tone and somehow children always listened properly to their songs, I know we did!

Not the best mulch as it tends to get a bit clumpy (OK when dug in though)  - from an unknown source it may contain lots of weed seeds, or worse, have been sprayed with weedkiller before being cut.

Absolutely. Just a light scattering though, a thick layer of grass clippings can become slimy.

Early this morning it was very cloudy and humid, like a storm was on the way.  Met office agreed and forecast rain from lunchtime - a joke right? No rain and brilliant sunshine from about 11.30am. I note they've now changed the rest of todays forecast to match what I can see through the window  :lol:
They're also saying it will be nice tomorrow morning as well, there doesn't seem now, to be any sign of the cold weather that they've been waffling on about for the rest of the week, either.  :wacko:
