good morning +

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Good morning
What kind of a dog is she Pat, and what’s her name?
Overcast here but no rain expected, so I really must venture out and stock up on a few things

Still feel a bit muzzy but much better than I have done

Have a good day everyone

Dull and chilly here today. The bird feeders need a top up but I’m up to date with other jobs ... I may settle down with a good book later on.
Have a lovely day folks :D

good morning, all.
overcast. i was right about yesterday - the sunny glimpses never arrived. they won't appear today, either.
all the salad leaves in last night's salad came from the garden - rocket, green in snow, and three other types of japanese leaves. interestingly, the 'mustardiness' of the leaves is greatly reduced by the salad dressing. i also have some radishes - admittedly only small but they are there.
i think a cup of coffee would be good right now - i fancy a croissant, too, but we have none. one day i will have a go at making them. i bought a bag of the french flour from aldi the other day so i haven't really an excuse not to.
i think some wall drilling may happen today and a swing past the farm gate to check out the cauliflowers.
have a good day, everyone

continuing the overcast theme here - and still still.
more wall drilling shortly then a talk about tree diseases, from a plant health officer, this afternoon.
my partner actually chose stuffed aubergines and salad, from the list i gave him, for dinner, last night. this was from someone who always said that he didn't like aubergines - i think that's a result for perseverance!

I got up very late. Insomnia (after my conversation with Patsy about it..) I have just planted out the last of my flowering bulbs. I am wondering what to do with garlic. Googling suggests either end of November or March (with a short spell in the fridge.) I guess now would do? They are going in pots.
Christmas decorations have been put in the attic. Washing load 2 in the machine.
OH back to Germany this afternoon. Work for me tomorrow :shock: (hence insomnia.)

Do you think I should wait to put it outside, Badger's mate?

Was flicking through my 'how to grow garlic' booklet and it said some are really best panted out in November. But it's too late :)

good morning, all.
brighter overcast than it has been of late although the little pictures on the met indicate greyer overcast.
the weedy coffee i had at the meeting yesterday maintained wakefulness until getting on for three --- i do like coffee in bed with a lie-in but it's not a good reason to imbibe caffein. i think i should start taking my own coffee.
nothing much planned other than the wall cutting that didn't get done yesterday.
there're a few sunbeams trying to break through - that definitely wasn't forecast!
have a good day, everyone.

ps. why not try some of your garlic now and the rest in spring? mind you, if they are sprouting now they might have shrivelled by the time spring comes in a couple of months so you risk nothing by planting them all now - just give them a bit of protection for a while if you think they'll be vulnerable. mine went into a raised bed a week or so ago (and they had all started sprouting anyway) but we are a bit milder down here.

Feeling a bit better today so might go and look at the plants outside. There are plants that should be dormant but aren’t due to the warmth so I’m a bit confused about pruning some things. It I can tidy up a bit

Another slow start this morning ... will have to be early tomorrow as I've a meeting down in Suffolk.

Re the garlic ... if you're not sure whether you've got a winter or spring planting variety I'd plant them in pots or modules now and keep them somewhere cool but sheltered ... cold frame or cool greenhouse ... as advised here https://www.gardenersworld.com/how-to/g ... ow-garlic/ and plant them out in the spring.

The sun keeps trying to shine here ... apparently we're in for a daytime high of 10C rising to 11C in the early evening :? before cooling down again ...

Have a lovely day folks :D

I have labels on the different types, so I can look up what's what in terms of planting times. (I have the useful booklet - bought, along with the garlic from the IofW garlic farm.)

I think will probably just plant out all the ones that should be before spring next weekend. They are going in pots, but I don't have room to keep them under cover once they are potted up.

I should check up on my artichokes. I didn't cut them to the crown, but just put fleece on them some times back.

I did put the rest of my flower bulbs out yesterday, though, at least.

we, too, are supposed to get a tiny peek of sun in an hour (or less) but i can't really see that happening.
off to the first yoga of the year in a bit then maybe a coffee with a friend.
i must remember to pick up some bread on the way home otherwise i'll have to make some - but it'll have to be white.

Need to get some veg while I’m out

My meeting yesterday was fine ... I was able to show them how to improve their application, clarify their ideas etc and also put them in touch with some folk who can help with the development of their project. I’ll continue to keep an eye fromthe sidelines but it’s two far away from here for me to be really involved in the day to day stuff.

Its raining here ... looks really miserable here ... however I need to go out and buy some food and go to tennis.

Have a good day folks :D

good morning, all.
there is sunshine at the moment although we have had our first frost of the season. the car had to be scraped this morning.
there was sunshine for much of yesterday, too, so we went straight down to the beach for a coffee after my session at the farm finished. i didn't give a toss how i looked - and i suppose it was a bit of a site.
i had been helping one of the guys to empty some slip casting moulds, one of which is very heavy and is too big for the straps that hold most of the moulds together so it takes a bit of manoeuvring to empty. i had asked the chap to help support it underneath while we tipped the slip out - which he did - for a while. when he stopped and all of the weight was, unexpectedly, with me the inevitable happened. the mould (both parts) fell into the (small dustbin sized) bucket of slip. a large amount of the slip - a runny mix of water and clay - took umbrage and leapt out of the bucket, splashing me from head to foot, a much smaller amount over the chap, a lot over the floor and some, over five foot away, on the jacket of one of the other care workers that he'd put on the back of a chair.
one of the girls immediately got up and got a mop but i made the chap who had caused the mess help her. only fair, i thought.
when we got in from the beach cafe my clothes went straight in the washing machine. i will be cleaning the dried clay from the uppers of my shoes today.
it's a good job no-one wears their best clothes to the farm!
the car is having its mot today.
coffee is drunk.
it's still sunny.
have a glorious day, everyone.

And have you noticed any benefit from the mudpack Scully? ;)

The garden is full of birds, mainly blackbirds, 'tame -type' pigeons who live at a local former coaching inn and lots of gold and green finches. What's the betting they all go elsewhere for the weekend of the Great Garden Birdwatch :rolleyes:

The veggies etc are all prepped so that after lunch I can assemble a casserole for supper, and the kitchen floor has been washed. Laundry has been done and is read to drape ... when I've done that my time is my own ... a book on Vikings in Britain is calling me :D

Have a lovely day folks :D

the mud from the truro river used to be dredged for the cosmetic industry but i'm not sure i would want to use it these days - i think cat litter would be a more refined version (the fullers earth variety not the wood pellet one - and unused of course!).

I think the snails thing has been bubbling away for a while. I am fairly sure I couldn't tolerate that and it sounds like it's not worth it either

https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/ ... a35c9bdf57
Classic case of just because something contains ingredients that are thought to do x, then any old apllication/ingenstion will do. I did wonder about putting vitamin C on one's face, buit according to one newspaper its bona fide.

Dull here today. Forecast to be dull for the next ten days. Brighton on the other hand is sunny every day. I should move to Brighton. There is a steadyish drain of designers from work moving there, but I bet it's almost as expensive as London. I notice people there hire out their drives as car parking space. Did I mention this the other week?!

good morning, all.
overcast at the moment but with a promise of a few rays of sun, followed by rain and some more overcast - well at least some of the forecast will be right.
i ordered my cooker hood yesterday, it will arrive on monday - i've taken a punt on one with no reviews but good pedigree and good spec. i hope it isn't a pig in a poke! i will be reviewing it when it finally gets into use.
the flea treatment i bought in the black friday month of sales seems to have suited our female cat. her demeanour has totally changed from neurotic, unpredictable, scabby, needy and weird to one that is predictable, playful and kittenish, much more relaxed and with much silkier fur.
a far, far happier cat. this hasn't been the case with other flea treatments we've used on her. it's like having a totally different cat.
better shift, we're putting strings in walls for the the electrician to join bits up, today.
nearly finished my coffee.
have a good day, everyone.

ps i've found that the best facial treatments include keeping your face in the dark, no whistling and no smiling - but wearing a full face mask may be just as good.

off to meet with the electrician in an hour. it was supposed to be yesterday evening but he over ran.
i have just received an email from the ceramics group i belong to. they are thinking of holding a raku kiln building day where you go home with a ready to use raku kiln including everything but the gas. i think i may have been the first to reply!. i have most of the equipment to make one already but i think this will just make it happen quicker and i could use my stuff to make another.

It's as dull as predicted here weatherwise (and indeed in other ways!) I spent over an hour on the phone to BT this morning, trying to get my internet to work (discovered whilst trying to do this that I have a bad back - router is on the floor). As soon as I put the phone down, it started working. There is a new router coming next week. Win win I suppose, apart from pain and time loss. Meanwhile I had totally lost track of time and when I got back from my rather indulgent pre-husband returns M&S and Waitrose food shop, I was shocked to see that it was 3pm (and I'd had nothing to eat.) I intend to cook tonight. And might make a cake tomorrow! Now that is a rare event...

i was avulsed from bed at an ungodly time, this morning, for a delivery. he had already done four and it was only shortly after half seven.
we've been lulled into believing that tracking is available on all deliveries now. i was told it would arrive on monday - i didn't realise mondays started that early!
been shopping and you're all back now.
have a cosy evening, everyone.

good morning, all.
overcast, light breeze and not too cold (met says it's about 9°c at the moment).
yoga soon, some wall chopping, a trip to falmouth which includes a look to see if the falfalafel van is there and then (live) richard the third at the cinema tonight.
quite a full day.
have a good day, everyone.

Good morning all :D
5C here and we’re promised a high of 9C. Our colder weather arrives on Thursday ... apparently.
I’ve a medical appt (routine) this afternoon ... I prefer morning appts but it had to be rearranged cos the nurse was unwell ... so I will be setting out just as OH gets home from work ...
Enjoy the felafels and Richard III.
Have a good day folks :D

Morning. Overcast here. I am working from home today, waiting for my new BT router to arrive I spent hours trying to fix the internet at the weekend.) I feel like a naughty truant, but I am not as I am about to start work.

Cut my fingers quite badly while cooking last night, but I am glad to find I can type. Bizarrely did this not on a knife, but on the edge of a little metal saucer that goes in a spoon stand. Was taking it to the sink to wash it, it slippped and I caught it, hard, by the edge, and it sliced through the flesh of two fingers and my palm :shock: V annoying. (And messy.) I always seem to have some sort of accident in January. Last year, my fall (which I am still paying for), the year before the toe injury. It this is this January's accident, I have come off relatively lightly.

I hope everyone's day goes well.

Good morning
Overcast, cool, unexciting weather wise but apparently it starts to get cooler from here on

Got stuff to do here but will fling in a walk of course. Got to make lots of irritating little phone calls to people like Pozzani to sort out minor things

Have a good day everyone
