No I dont fancy eating them. Apart from being small, odd shaped & having that pointy thing on the end, they've not ripened past the dark green stage. It was a bit of an experiment, bringing them indoors to see if they'd keep going.
The sweet & chilli peppers did very well in the greenhouse this year. When I thought they'd finished they started flowering again, so I brought one of each plant indoors. The chilli produced a few more red chillis & the sweet pepper started growing 5 more fruits. But they all grew into these strange...
that would be pretty awful wouldnt it. I expect loads of people would stop keeping them, and I guess the rescues would find it hard to rehome if they couldnt free range. If the main worry from Defra is the risk to people then they should be clearer with their advice. They always stress "the risk to ...
I agree its awful to see how its affecting the wild birds. A tv article about Skuas dying from it in the nest was heartbreaking, & a friend of mine saw several dead birds, including birds of prey on & around the beaches on a holiday recently. If it came to my area & some wildbirds passed it to my ch...
I saw a discussion with chicken keepers in Norfolk. Apparently in some areas all chickens have to be registered, however few, & spot checks on their housing have been done - sometimes when people werent in. I dont really understand how 2 chickens in a garden pose more of a risk of spreading avian fl...
im interested to hear how you get on. Ive had a small air fryer for a few years. We use it for chips & other small things that need fast, hot baking/crisping. DIL's mother was impressed with it & bought her own (bigger one) recently, which she uses instead of her oven for lots of things. She loves i...
I'm afraid not spreckly. Having a 3 year old & her mum living here makes it quite hard to get things done. However, from September little Alice will be at nursery every afternoon, so maybe I can start working through my "things to do" list!
2022 veg results so far. Well the cucumbers in the greenhouse produced a handfull of mini cucs then got blight. As did the beef tomato plant in there. So far the toms outdoors are ok, I've pulled off the bottom leaves & been careful when watering them. I'm half hopeful. Chillis & sweet peppers in th...
Oh dear, I have years like that. Last year something pinched all the apples from my little tree (yes a squirrel I think) My runner beans got diseased & the tomatoes & cucumbers got blight. This year my blackcurrants have all dropped off early & the blight is back. I think the hot weather affected so...
Thanks for the encouragement LL. I still havent got around to making my bread, but I will. I like the idea of making something simple like a small loaf or rolls, maybe if I can get it right I'll be inspired to get the machine out again. I'd like to have a go at flat bread/pittas too eventually.
