Re: Show us your harvest!

They vary in size,dependant upon the variety.There are also some Chinese things,which are a different vegetable,that look identical but are half as big.They are ,apparently, brilliant for diabetics.

Re: Tomato questions

Last year,when I had a couple of quid,I bought a pair of indoor LED light boards from Brightlightz.They mean that I can comfortably sow a bit in early Jan,and grow on in the tunnel,(or indoors if you've no outside power).This way your plants will be big old units(keep potting on) before you stick th...

Re: Sloppy potatoes

If you deny potatoes water, they tend to become hard rather than soft,or more correctly,they take ages to soften when you boil them,then go straight to mush. As above,it's all about variety,though,the 'all round ' spuds everybody's so keen on are a poor compromise,grow 1 waxy,1 floury and one salad ...

Re: Home made cleaning products

Re: Define your alternative self

Having finally(after 40 years) been diagnosed as Bipolar,it's one of the classic consequences of the condition that looking back it's virtually impossible to tell 'what was you' and what was the BP.'But supposing that if certain traits were shared with my Dad,and Grandad, I would suggest: I hate usi...

Re: Very small simple hot water system off back boiler?

I had a narrowboat with a Morso dove running a backboiler connected to a rad about 20' down the boat.As it was a thermosyphoning system it was pretty important to get the correct angle on the top pipe to the top of the stove and to have the header tank in the right place,and it has to be 28 ml.coppe...

Re: Allotment thefts,how can we prevent?

It'll take a a while,but you need decent thorn hedging.Who ever owns the allotment be they council or private needs to look at the fencing in the meantime.
As for the police,58 local people have been broken into..........
