  • Re-introduce myself...

    Morning all, I should say I was here for a few months last year whilst furloughed but lapsed when full time work came back calling.

    I did have a patio full of window boxes and growbags of veg.

    I've moved and now have a lump of grass to dig up before planting my veg.

    clay soil in Derbyshire.

    cheers Warren R

    Hi Warren, glad you have somewhere to garden.
    If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

      Welcome to the Derbyshire brick-making clay.
      It is manure all the way to a good plot.

        one neighbour i look up to and the other knows their place, like the ITMA sketch!

          Hello and welcome back, Warren. Best wishes for a great growing year this year.
          Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

              I am over near Worksop and the boundary with Nottinghamshire.
              When utilities dig a hole they have to have a second worker to leaver the lumps of clay out of the back-hoe. It is real clay.

                  Thanks Plot 70 & Mr. Bones.

                  My land probably isn't as bad as i feared but someone has kindly planted some archaeology for me!

                  i have enough bricks to lift my pots off the ground now.

                  I'm half way through preparing the ground.

                  Looking forward to some heat...

                  Thanks fr all your support.

                    Squisotto - risotto made with winter squash. Yummy.

                      i love my squash but was hoping for squid, my ultimate guilty secret.

                      do you roast the squash first?

                      i did a chicken risotto for tea last night, with as much veg as i could get into it; courgette, cauli, broccoli, sprouts go really well.
                      Oh, and sliced raddishes


                      and i put some saffron into the stock, like Milanese...

                      nearly every time I cook, is a rissotto.
