Re: Hi from Sweden!

Hi Johan! Nice to meet you and welcome to 'ish :wave: It's a bit quiet about the place at the moment as I think we are all busy getting things going in the garden, but it won't be for long! I am insanely jealous of you living in Sweden and being Swedish. I love pretty much everything about Scandinav...

Re: Guilty pleasures

Hummus definitely - 300 calories a pot but I can polish the whole thing off with a packet of pitta bread in about ten minutes!

Re: What Is For Tea?

Merry Christmas everyone - funnily enough we are having our leftover pork and cranberry stuffing tonight - it is still in the freezer in a sort of loaf shaped tin, so I plan to bake it in the oven and slice it like a meat loaf with cabbage, spuds and gravy!

Re: What Is For Tea?

Sticky pork skewers for us tonight with possibly salad and some kind of rice with nice bits in it. We don't usually have meat two days in a row but it's been quite a veggie/fishy week so far, so I don't feel too bad.

Re: What Is For Tea?

Ooh Almond Crusted Cod, sounds lush. And 'clean'.

I have a beef casserole in the slow cooker with all of the odds and sods vegetables curling up in the fridge and half a bottle of red wine (I think the alcohol will cook off by the time I eat it). Served with mustard mash...mmmm...

Re: What Is For Tea?

Going to bump start this old thread with the ground-breaking news that as my husband is abandoning me for the cinema tonight, I will be having a jacket potato, tuna mayo and some salady bits.

Anyone else eating something more exciting?

Re: Someone say something

That is a dubious honour Weedo! Hehe. I like the fact that our growing seasons are at the same time of year, even though yours is over winter while ours is over summer. I am sure once the growing season gets kicked off in earnest and the sap is risen we will all perk up a bit. I feel the same way - ...

Re: How do you water potatoes through fabric?

Thanks Zoe :-)

Good point - didn't think about damming the ends. Will give that a go.

Re: Someone say something

I know, it is quiet isn't it? I have been racking my brains for something new to post but I haven't been doing anything very interesting apart from tidying up and sloshing mud about in my garden!

Have been sowing though, perhaps I will start a sowing thread.

Re: How do you water potatoes through fabric?

Thanks for the congrats and the suggestions all. Will keep you posted. Flo - you raise an interesting point. Am I being unrealistic at having a full on veggie garden and having a new baby at the same time? In my mind I will be wafting around with a baby sling and a trug and keeping on top of things....

Re: How do you water potatoes through fabric?

Yes, thanks Tony, good point - must remember to plant in order of harvest so I don't end up with first earlies bang smack in the middle!

Re: Bird Flu restrictions

I think these restrictions are lifted now aren't they? Last time I checked the DEFRA website (which was last week) it was 28th February.

Re: How do you water potatoes through fabric?

Thanks both :icon_smile: What could possibly go wrong eh? Its amazing the lengths you go to for a year off work! Maggie we already have the membrane (bought way too much for the greenhouse) and a distinct lack of mulch - have already emptied the contents of our only compost bin on to these new patch...
