Re: Short supply ...

Tabitha has the cheap Tesco's biscuits + a small spoonful of tinned twice a day. To stop the tin going off I divide it into pouches to last a couple of days each, then pop them in the small freezer compartment of my fridge. Only get pouches if family are feeding her.

Re: Quail

I suppose people who buy them in the shops are looking for a luxury item (for a dinner party?). People who buy at the door maybe want staples, not little fiddly things.

Re: Short supply ...

I was really annoyed on Sat. Live 10 miles from any big supermarket, so shop when passing. On Tues I detoured on the way home from choir to get Tesco cat food. Out of stock so bought small box of dearer brand to tide me over. Sat I went somewhere else so googled to see if any Ts would still be open ...

Re: Quail

What do you use the eggs for. Are they worth the bother of shelling hem?

Are you sure?
When my children were young breakables were move higher and higher. Having seen the way hens jump i think you might need sky-hooks.

Re: How does your garden grow?

Still a few strawberries ripening, but only one at a time, so I nibble as I pass.

Re: How does your garden grow?

I spent over 2 hours today chopping brambles and pulling nettles in a tiny corner of the orchard, where I thought there was a long forked pole to replace the washing prop that broke. Mind you, I don't know how long before that one snaps . Jim cut it so it must be over 6 years old. Not long. In fact...

Re: How does your garden grow?

I was thinking about my fruit tree harvests but my garden is so overgrown ... A patch of brambles took hold in the bed by the glass greenhouse and is now completely blocking the access past the chicken runs. The brambles are even taller than the shed and I can see from the back door that they are f...

Re: How does your garden grow?

An excellent year for plums, both Czar and Victoria. Pick to eat. Picked to freeze. Picked for my daughter. Picked for my charity stall on the verge. Given up now, the bees and butterflies are enjoying them so they can have the rest. There are boxes of James Grieve in the porch. The Worcester are re...
