Re: Product review. Brogio flail head

It looks like a dangerous weapon.
Looks like EU health and safety agree.

Follow the rules we don't want any nasty accidents.
It would be a dull place on here if any thing nasty happened to u.

One like the medieval knights on horse back used to use.
Pecan unused it riding a horse?

Re: What i'm brewing at the moment

Some EM ( environmentally friendly microorganisms) to act as compost activators. Off to lotty to use some on my overflowing compost bins. Then I will top up with water, the dregs washed out from my marmite jar and any carbohydrates and sugars I can find in my cupboards. Looks like the weather should...

Re: Red apple and black current chutney, preserve

Yes the flavor of the black currents is still there with a little bit of a bite too.
I sieved the black currents out in the end and ended up with a acidic jelly .
I think it will be good with cold strong flavored meats.

Re: Flowering apple tree in august.

It could be stress as it was very dry in June and July . The tree is only 3 years old so I was giving it along with some newly planted trees a real good soaking once and some times more a week. I stopped watering about 3 or 4 weeks ago when I went on holiday. It could be the change in watering that ...
