Re: Sparkling elderflower cordial?

Ok, I did sterilise things like I do for jam but I didn't do the water bath thing so it must be the wild yeasts, I am not complaining though!

His rash which h...

Re: Milk intolerance?

I will try goats milk, I am a bit iffy about soy milk esp for boys- I figure it is better to avoid it than risk the rumours of hormonal disruptions being true. Whenever I go to the Dr. with health complaints I am told there are many complicated expensive tests which are inconclusive and/or there is ...

Re: Milk intolerance?

That seems like a good suggestion, he is the one who has the most milk so he probably wouldn't notice if we didn't switch but I think I will pickup some kind of "non normal" milk tomorrow and get started. Hopefully it will cure every thing that ails him( I was going to put a *fingers crossed* smiley...

Re: PSB.... thoroughly confused....!

I am still eating shoots from my plant which matured in Spring, the one I planted last year- I don't know how long they are supposed to sprout either!

Re: How can I be?

I am beginning to wonder if there is anyone these days who isn't touched by depression/anxiety/mental health issues and therefore can anyone tell Boboff what "normal" people do? Not me that's for sure! I know I have trouble "being" and trying to get my dear husband to stop doing things constantly BE...

Unfortunately that one would go over my head two fold- one I suspect it is a country specific reference and two if it was a reference to the Australian celebrity masterchef I still wouldn't have the foggiest!

Re: Elm seeds- compost? Mulch or....?

I thought leaf mould might work- it is raining now so now they will be all damp which will be easier to handle... I will bag them up and leave them to lurk behind the shed!
