Re: Advice for a hopeless gardener

Anyway, it'll have to do. They can support themselves a little bit. My fault for skimping, not paying attention to detail, and being over optimistic. With me, everything either dies or turns into a triffid on steroids. I scrimped on canes too, peas much neglected. Still a fair harvest. Next year, I...

Re: Advice for a hopeless gardener

Quick update. Tried to give the peas a bit more height by loosening the netting. Looks like I need longer canes. How high to these things grow?!

Re: Recession Recipes

Tin of chopped tomatoes, tub of quark, add whatever herbs/garlic etc you like. Heat together. Add cooked pasta. Quick and easy. Quark? I'd never heard of that. Sounds a bit like cottage cheese? Certainly sounds like a super quick tummy filler.... Unlike Oatmeal & Cheese and Marmite :) :mrgreen:...
