  • Morning no frost today that does make a change

    Our local butcher used to make his own suet but he's now closed so these days I mostly use veggie suet I know its not the same but nothing compares to that he used to sell.

    • Good morning all. No frost here and the sun is trying to come out.
      A trip to the florist this morning to get some flowers.
      Today is my mothers birthday so I will be visiting the cemetery.
      I need to pot on some calendula that are getting too big for the seed tray.
      Thanks for the smiles Snoop, I caught a few as they were floating by on the breeze.
      Have a good day all.

      And when your back stops aching,
      And your hands begin to harden.
      You will find yourself a partner,
      In the glory of the garden.

      • Good afternoon all,lovely and sunny,
        Nicos i don't know if butchers still do it,but i remember something about fat from them,buying in a lump,and grating it,it seemed to be white in colour more open weave,not the sort of fat we associate with the bacon fat,thats what was used before atora came out,no other news i want to hear,only what do not ,got to start sowing some seeds,might just abandon some of them for this year,have lost faith in getting moved in time to benefit sowing them,for good results,perhaps in not hurt for 1 year,have a good day and Bgood2yourselfes.

        • Darn!
          after having turned off our central heating boiler to receive the fuel delivery it wouldn’t go back on

          Called the specialist and they are coming later on in the week

          so no hot water...thank goodness we have the wood fires for heating.

          I’m just going to have to use kettles and thermos flasks then - like we’ll have to in the camper

          oooh!!!!.....we can try out the portable shower in the bath now!!! Exciting or what????

                          • Nicos, I remember some of my female relatives chopping and grating the hard fat from around beef kidneys when I was young. Butchers never used to charge for it. One Christmas I made mincemeat and because some was for my sister ( who doesn't eat meat) I made half the jars with atora vegetable suet. The mincemeat tasted the same. I'm not sure what fat is in the veggie version.

                            Yesterday my husband managed to weed out my french lavender bush (dead sticks he said). Aaaarrrggghhhhh! It was a beautiful day yesterday and lovely to be out in the fresh air. This morning looks promising too so far. I think today may well be the first picking of asparagus.

                              No frost here either Though we do have cloud forecast all day. I don't think today is a shorts day.
                              Housework needs tackled, work , deliveries and gardening later. Also have food shop delivery later too.
                              Better get on . Enjoy your day .

                                wow...no frost!

                                Off to town in a sec - looking forward to going out tbh!
                                Justgoing to have that cuppa - ta muchly Bones!

                                I’ll have a word with our butcher gf....I was pretty sure I had remembered correctly- thanks for confirming! ( I must have been a wee nipper when I saw my granny preparing it! )

                                Lottie!.... give that son a big pat on the back - it’s good to have a focus now. I think we’ll all give a big sigh of relief on your moving day

                                Still no news re our heating boiler - it’ll be nice to get a visit, then no doubt a wait for a part

                                Right...best get ready - see ya later peeps! Enjoy your day.
