Grow Your Own / Re: What I did on the plot today 2023
« Last post by Subversive_plot on Today at 21:14 »
More work on the fence today.

Buried a dead squirrel (not in the garden) that fell out of one of our pine trees. Landed right next to raised bed #5.  Burial better than reeking in the wheelie bin for a week. The critters jump from tree to tree 120 feet off the ground, I'm amazed it doesn't happen more often.

Planted more cilantro and spinach in raised beds # 1 and # 4.  Also planted red tatsoi, bok choi, and Chinese cabbage (Napa type) in #4.

Chitting snap peas and snow peas to replace some killed by our big freeze before the holidays.

Packed up some tomato, pepper, and other seeds to share with my sister in Indianapolis.

Chatting on the Plot / need a hat!
« Last post by wighty on Today at 20:27 »
Anybody got a hat I can borrow?  My youngest daughter got engaged today but no plans for the actual wedding.  They've been together for ten years and have Madame to show for it (our name for her as at 5 years old she acts like a 25 year old and loves telling her Grandad off). A lovely solitaire diamond set in a platinum band to show for it.

OH had a busy day out off road biking and I did too much gardening to have energy left for cooking, so we had curry from the freezer with rice and an onion, tomato and cucumber salad.

There is a beer for us each in the fridge as well.  I think we will be nodding off over our glasses in an hour or so though  :D

I bought one of the clam things you can put in the microwave by MICO after seeing a Barry Lewis youtube video. https://youtu.be/lpLBWV0MFkg?t=676 It's very passable - not as good as a good toastie maker but less hassle than the alternatives.

We managed to make our chutney with the absolute minimum of sugar - like a couple of ounces for several jars, as it's absolutely verboten here!

I still have plenty from 2019 lurking in the cupboard and the vinegar seemed to do the preservation trick!

I have to admit though, I zapped up a few jars with some nigh-on sugar-free damson jam, and added a handful of chillis, and we have loads of the best chilli jam we've had in ages!

Just read tomorrow's papers, Rowland, because they'll say the opposite - they always do!

You'll be fine - Growster says so!
