Re: Does anyone know.....

Unfortunately we threw away all the seeds - I just managed to whip out this little blighter before they were unceremoniously dumped by OH. Can't grumble too much - it's taken me 30+ years to get get him to tidy up! :lol:

Re: Winter storms

Crikey, you're lucky that was all the damage.

The sky, here, has been a very odd colour this evening. Heavens knows what's brewing!

Re: Does anyone know.....

Yes, I think that's the best plan, Zoe, it's still doing well, growing slowly but quite happily. I'll move it to another room which is much cooler soon - we're near the stage of lighting the boiler, so I think it will be too warm on the living room widowsill and I am slightly concerned, KL, that com...

Does anyone know.....

.....if I can overwinter a squash plant? We got a lovely acorn squash in the veg box a couple of weeks ago. I cooked it and left the gubbins - seeds etc in the bowl for taking out to the compost. The following evening when we came to take it out there was a teeny sprout growing - I'm guessing it was...

Hi Jasmine, welcome to Ish. :wave:

I like Eliot Coleman's work too. I've got his 4 season polytunnel book - unfortunately no polytunnel any more.

Have a look round the threads, old and new. We'll try and answer any questions you might have.

Re: What are you growing right now?

Erm, pretty much everything has finished up here but we had tomatoes, cucumbers, chillies, herbs, berries and apples - oh and two small pears (but that's a huge improvement on the none we've harvested before :wink: ). We're not eating spuds or many root veg so there's no point in growing them. The h...

Re: Apple ID anyone

Yes, we picked all ours on Friday. Today we're tree moving! :lol: Fortunately they're all in pots so we can move them into the shelter of the house. The wind has picked up nicely :roll: today and although the remnants of Helene are much further south, according to the Met Office, we've got another f...

It looks to be missing us out, for once. I hope your travel plans go to plan.
