Gateway to the incomprehensible!

Posted on August 26, 2011 at 22:00 5 Comments


Hi guys,


Quick question- I need to replace my side gate. The pre made ones at Wickes and B &Q have rotten reviews- they arent sufficiently primed and swell closed.

Ive been down to see them and they seem flimsy and unattractive. 


I found this one which is exactly what I need. 


I want to engage a handyman/…

Now I get why people plant great forests of peas! They dont go very far do they?

I needed 10 times as many.

Fresh in the pod they are like sucking on liquid fructose. They never get to the kitchen!

Hi Melinda;
The "Tomatoes in their jackets are really Tomatillos". If you don't already know these you might like to look at the blogpost about them on my blog (back in August)....

Hi Melinda; I've been away on holiday, so only just clearing a backlog of blogposts, comments etc, not deliberately ignoring you! In answer to your question about the taste of the tomatoes -- yes, I do think they taste different. I suppose it's like wine isnt't it? To some people wine is all the same, but when you learn more about it, you soon realise that wines (and tomatoes!) can be very different to each other. My favourite amongst this year's toms is Sungella.

Thank you Melinda for your comment.  Yes I garden here in UK.  Gardening and making good food is so rewarding.  Feel free to ask for  my recipes.  Most are easy to make. 


The other garden with Yam is in South carolina, one of my friends'.  They have better climate and I often sight with envy!
