Chatting on the Plot / Re: 70 page booklet binder.
« Last post by Goosegirl on Today at 15:06 »
Thanks Lardman. I saw a Rexel when I was Goggling it but it may be easier if I can find some place in town to do it for me. My booklet is an updated history of Cockersand Abbey so the subject has a niche market and am told it would be rather expensive to get it published. I fund and print them out myself with a cover page and use a spine bar to hold them together then sell them to visitors at £5 per copy when the Abbey Chapter House is opened during the second weekend in September. All the proceeds go towards maintaining and improving the various display areas inside. I just want it to look a bit more professional because I've put a lot of work into it and its had many good reviews. If anyone wants to read it, just email me and I'll email you back and attach the front page and the latest edition, but no money is necessary as I just want to help in promoting its importance in our history.

Some of her songs so reminds me of my early days at work especially "Say a Little Prayer for You". Massive voice, massive personality and will be massively missed.

I am so unknowledgeable about all the different types of coffee because I just like an ordinary mug of tea.  Today I went into a café and asked for an ordinary coffee with milk and sugar. The reply was " Is that a black coffee or white"?  :wacko:

Getting up this morning I had a song with charades in its title. Yesterday I had the Cornish Dance. What will tomorrow bring?  :unsure:

Grow Your Own / Re: Richmoor Compost from MOrrisons
« Last post by brokenglass on Today at 12:05 »
First 3 bags were OK second lot were less that useless.   Contacted them and they thanked me for doing so and will pass on my complaint to help their supplier in the future.     They then promised me vouchers and points on my "more" card received 2 £ 5 vouchers today which just cover the costs of the bags but I have to spend such in Morrisons obviously not on compost!    My advice is to steer well clear of Morrisons when you purchase compost.

Grow Your Own / Wizard beans
« Last post by JayG on Today at 11:42 »
Just finished my late-sown crop of broad beans (Masterpiece Green Longpod) and pretty reasonable they were too given the growing conditions.

With limited space, I am wondering whether Wizard beans give a better yield per plant, and also how the flavour and texture compare to more traditional broad bean varieties (needing to remove tough skins is a definite deal-breaker for me!)

I'm not a fan of overwintering crops if I can help it - although the recommendation seems to be sowing in October, will they still perform well if sown in early spring?

Grow Your Own / Re: Parsnip germination failure
« Last post by JayG on Today at 11:33 »
Long standing members will probably sigh wearily as yet again I post a link to a chart of germination rates and speed at different soil temperatures for various crops, but it does show just how extraordinarily long parsnip seeds take to germinate at low temperatures (and therefore often rot before doing so.)

Well Snowdrops.   I am sure that the ladies in the teashop will be successful if those 'photos are anything to go by.
The Ploughmans looked a proper one, and the afternoon tea - yum.   I guess you are not any of the ladies in the 'photo and you are behind the camera.   :lol: :lol:  Mrs Bouquet

No I’m not behind the camera! Lol

I am looking at the 'photo now, trying to decide which one is you.   Mrs B
