Well I'll be happy to find you a packet no probs and send it on. I don't have any seeds myself, but I am always lurking around garden centres etc!

So, you want a good old fashioned type marrow that we all hated when we were kids, stuffed with mince and things?

Oh god Nev, I have a few days a week like that. :lol:

Perhaps I need a bigger freezer. Mine is pathetically small cos I freeze virtually nothing. It's good in one way, because I cook fresh food each day, but come the harvesting season, I may have to use it to store all the fruits of my labours!

Thanks Nev and Pure, A solar dryer would be interesting. My brother is a mad proffessor. :shock: (actually he's not, but he looks like one) I know that he has made solar panels and what have you from recycled/cheap materials, in the past. I may call upon him for a design. He's actually a highly inte...

You'll be ok Nev, I only cut the toes out of them!

Seriously though, I am on a sprouting mission this week. I am going to ask my local post office shop for another sweetie jar to start my beans off in. (they usually sell them for 20p in aid of our local hospice)

Drying Fruit etc

I read on another thread that PurePortugal dries fruit etc which can be done in the sun. (lucky thing!) But...how do you dry stuff when you don't live in a lovely dry place? Anyone dried anything here in the sometimes sunny UK? I have done apple rings on strings in the past, but is there anything a ...

Oh that's great news, I am still investigating the availability of allotments in our area. I am hoping to get one which is literally around the corner from us, but I am aware that they are tricky to come by. Go and have fun! Lots of hard work, but just imagine what you'll be able to grow. How exciti...

I think I may go on slug patrol tonight, it's quite easy in my back yard, cos I have a security light near one of my slug havens. It's probably the easiest way of getting shot of them.

Good idea Wulf!

OK here goes. You'll have to put up with my rather vague amounts for stuff as I am not a measurement cook! 1lb minced beef (organic if you can get hold of it) 1 Onion minced up in the food processor or just chop it as small as you can. 1 Garllic clove chopped finely 1 slice of bread chopped finely o...

Hi Fluffy, Supersize Me was scarey, but it reflects the way a lot of people eat today. I must admit, we go to 'Mc You know where' or BK, about twice a year, which I don't beat myself up about. The coffee is good there, but little else! The kids don't eat those sort of things week or even every month...
