A few additions to the herb patch, took my comfrey plant to the allotment and some flat leafed parsley (son of morris culinary variety!) My little red rose bush is still thriving! Hilled my potatoes today, after only a week in the ground, and planted some bell peppers.
I've had a look at my plot, not officionally mine yet, so I have to be patient! It's well overgrown so I'm going to be busy. The guys there are falling over themselves to help! Great bunch of chaps! Came across a good herbal site yesterday www.herbexpert.co.uk
At eight fifteen this morning I had a phone call to tell me my wait for an alottment was over! I have to wait for the previous tennant to hand in his keys before I get to know what state it's in, or if it has a shed. With luck I may get some prodution this year!
I shall need a large dish to prepare chocolate chilli rabbit soon for five people, if all goes to plan. So I trawled the charity shops and found this gem. Five litre capacity Aluguss Brater crackle black cast aluminium with Pyrex lid! Didn't look as if it had ever been used; £3.75! Googled up the name and found one for €30 on e-bay!
Racked my turbo cider into a clean demi-john, and couldn't resist a taste! My voice went a little hoarse, still fermenting (3 weeks now) methinks it may have to sit a long while to mellow!
