Grow Your Own / Thieving on lottie captured on cctv
« Last post by cardoon queen on Today at 01:19 »
Not sure where to post..so what rules about evicting does your lottie have? We have captured a chap on film gaily helping himself to the compost in bags from a display outside the shop in front of the car park. 2 broken barrows to be planted up & 2 old wellies filled with compost to plant. He looked and then went & got a barrow and helped himself including emptying each boot.  We have a  no theft policy but ... would you evict?  should maybe mention he has shouted at people, has stolen timber off plot & tried to bribe committee but the previous committee did not warn him about behaviour or send him letter cos of covid so there is no paper trail.  If so how long do you give people to take their stuff?? Be v interested to hear what other committees do...

That's a very good idea as some of my outside canes have black stains on them (due to diseased tomato plants) and I'll follow your advice

Chatting on the Plot / Re: Choosing colour for emulsion paint.
« Last post by Yorkie on Yesterday at 20:17 »
Having lived in rented accommodation for over 20 years, all being painted magnolia (except one which was pink and brown  :ohmy: ), I knew that when I bought my own place it wouldn't have anything called magnolia in it!

Yes, there's lots of neutral shades, but none magnolia  :lol:

Last night was horrendous with the heavy rain and wind.  It's still been windy today but at least it's been dry.  Not very warm though.

In the supplement with the Sunday paper this weekend were two recipes from the Hairy Bikers new book on pies.  We've now had both of them this week as we had all the ingredients in the cupboard/freezer.  Hot pot style one using corned beef and tonights was sausage meatball and veg made into a cottage pie.  Both to be recommended.

Tuna pasta bake because for the life of me I can't remember what I was planning to make with the chicken drumsticks I had delivered on the shopping ::)

Grow Your Own / Re: Growing Potatoes This Time of Year
« Last post by rowlandwells on Yesterday at 18:26 »
I was looking at some seed potatoes in a garden centre the other day and it said seed potatoes for autumn planting  i though where on earth would i grow them maybe in the poly tunnel in tubs but as I've never attempted to grow potatoes in the winter i think its a no brainer to consider growing potatoes outdoors over the coming months frost's and all

I know some gardeners have planted potatoes late summer to harvest new potatoes for Christmas but to me its hit and miss but everyone to there own personally I'm keeping to growing my potatoes come spring

Grow Your Own / Growing Potatoes This Time of Year
« Last post by Abunndance on Yesterday at 17:37 »
Hi Everyone!  I have some rotted straw bales and am attempting to grow potatoes in them.  They are lofted over the chitted taters about two feet.  Right now, they are all just peeking out.  Is this a really dumb idea?  Do you think they have a chance outside this time of year?
