Do check for bugs but apart from that I can’t see why you couldn’t use the stems in cooking.

Thanks. I have pulled up a dozen or so. Most are whoppers, about 3" diameter so I'll follow your routine with them

Mrs B - I am sure it is going to look lovely, but 39 is a lot to look after.  I have about 1/3 of that and wonder if I have overdone it  :lol:

Shaker style cabinet doors - been there, done that.  My kitchen cabinet doors drive me mad with the grime they collect and even more clever, I opted for a painted finish so you have to be really careful what you clean them with  ::)

The kitchen is old and due to be replaced soon, so I care less about the cleaning aspect and just scrub them nowadays. I just wish it didn’t have to be every 5 minutes  :lol:

Curry  :D  Just a simple Japanese style one made with S&B Golden medium hot curry block, but it was quick and tasty  :)

Curly garlic is usually due to thrips, which are tiny - so have a good look...

Eddie’s diary … also known as you got that on wonky or is it the way you are standing.

It feels like summer, the annual winter flock down for bird flu is past and I’m back patrolling the garden  :D

Well I was until the totally uncalled for and rude comments started. ‘What’s with the tail’ she asks. ‘Are you trying a comb over’.  I’ll have you know my tail is magnificent and admired far and wide !

Then of course Millie gets involved. ‘You are right’ she calls over ‘deffo wonky’. Conspiring with the human -pah!

Then I inspect the 2 hooligans who are dust bathing and get told my tail is not as straight as last year and they think it’s funny. How they can tell anything when they are upside down with their heads in the dirt is beyond me !

After this barrage of abuse I use my ninja skills to sneak up and treat the human to my best hard stare. She was lolling on a garden chair drinking coffeee as usual until she finally realised she was being watched and spotted my beady eyes on her. That told her  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:
