Egg glut, veggie plants, fabric stash and more


Hello It's me again!!
I'm rubbish at this regular/frequent blogging thing aren't I ?
Thank you so much for your comments on my last post, which I have finally replied to if you want to jump back to them. I was going to write something last week as there has been so much going on, but ended up reading other's blogs instead! Easily done isn't it?!

We were in Cornwall sea fishing last week. While David was fishing and my friend was away skiing I "did" the charity shops ( bought books and jeans) and nurseries. The vegetable plants were pretty gruesome and quite expensive at the nurseries and garden centre, so I didn't bother. However, when I called in Tesco for a pork pie (jealous Cro?) for our journey home they had some really strong reasonably priced beetroot and broad bean plants, which I bought to get ahead of the game as the late spring means that we have been unable to get anything in the water sodden gardens.
David did quite well fishing and bought home six pollack and two ling, which, when processed yielded 12lb of fillets. The bones, head etc I bought home as usual and cooked up for the chickens.
The chickens are now laying well, but a week ago Severn Trent closed our road to do repairs which meant we lost our customers and passing trade. So.....
I have started processing the glut. So far I have made mayonnaise, pavlovas, omelettes and dippy eggs and quiche. I have bought some lemons and unsalted butter and intend making lemon curd. Any more ideas? I'm struggling to get waterglass, to preserve eggs,  from a chemist so I guess I'll have to buy online, but am struggling to understand the measures they give. The picture above is of the kitchen surface next to the back door.The leg rings are for 8 hens we rescued last week so that we can keep an eye on how they are doing. The jars are for stick money, egg money and honey money. The diary is for me to record my egg numbers, sales and events such as hatchings plantings etc. (just in case you wondered)
Look at this creature !

At first we thought it was a large leech and then we wondered if it was the New Zealand Flatworm that lives on our lovely and important earthworms ( nasty little blighter) when an half an empty worm was excreted from its nether end this was confirmed. We are now on flatworm watch!
Talking of plants, which I was a couple of paragraphs ago, the greenhouses are bursting with plants ready to go out or be potted on. As mentioned above I do buy some plants,especially those we don't need lots of. Below is my bargain buy of red cabbage plants. The 10 cell tray, for £1.99 yeilded 28 plants, which is good value, but more plants than I need so I will give some away.
I realise this post is even more rambling and random than is usual. So I might as well soldier on with a couple more pictures taken recently.
I might have mentioned that I am intent on using up my stash of materials, which is huge and not for the faint hearted. I have decided that when I use some material for something I will not put any back but use it all up in some way or another.|This has mostly meant cutting out patchwork pieces for another project.
In this picture, from 12.o'clock we have a log cabin quilt I am making for a male friend, using up shirts and blouses, in the margarine tub are hexagons tacked and ready to go, in front pinned to (Christmas) card ready for tacking, at 6 o'clock is net curtaining, muslin and pillow cases for vegetable and produce bags to take to the supermarket to put veggies in instead of plastic bags, at 8 o'clock is all the scraps I can do nothing with which will be used for stuffing and back to the top again are very small squares for a scrappy quilt. Blimey that was a bit of a marathon explanation, thanks for sticking with me!.
I reckon that this has gone on long enough, so will finish with a couple of pictures of our new cat, Baloo
Firstly sleeping with previous arch enemy Sammy and then him keeping warm on my laptop.


Back soon with some eco-warrior stuff.

  1. I can remember a big scare about flat-worms several years ago when they appeared in Ireland. Hadn't heard anything since. Very worrying - are they notifiable?

    2. Having Herpes is a Terrible Experience and my Experience will help some hsv patients beware of Herbs from online doc.
      I was positive to the deadly virus called HERPES and i lost hope because i
      was out casted and rejected even by my closet friends.
      i searched on-line to know and enquirer about cure for HERPES and i read
      someone testimony on how he was cured from HSV-2 so i decided to contact
      the same herbalist Call Dr Edidia because i know that nature has the power
      to heal everything.
      i contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry
      that he will help me with the natural herbs from God!
      after 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure has been ready and
      he sent it to me via UPS SPEED POST and it got to me after 3 days!
      i used the medicine as he instructed me (MORNING and EVENING) and i was
      cured!
      its really like a dream but i am so happy!
      thats the reason i decided to also add more comment of Him so that more can
      be saved just like me!

    Hope Col is holding his own. Sending positive thoughts his way

    1. I'm not too good at sitting, so I sew the hexagons while watching the TV at night. I can take them around with me when I go away etc. They certainly take a while to get enough together to make something!

  4. Might have been a 'rambling and random' post, but it was all the more interesting for it! Love the pic of Baloo spread out on your laptop....Betty (dog) is forever coming over and resting her chin on mine when I'm trying to read or type...

  7. We found a flatworm in one of our plant pots a couple of years ago. We had to google it as we had no idea what it was... It was quickly dispatched and we haven't seen any more. Hopefully it had just tagged along on a plant pot.

  9. You've reminded me that I do have one Pork Pie in the freezer; I'd better take it out.

    I've put in my red onion sets, and a few caulis and calabrese; the rest can wait until the end of the month. Lovely time of year.

  10. I have plants ready to go in too. Hopefully a few days of sun should make the soil ready to receive them before they outgrow their pots. I'm not growing cauli this year as I struggled to stop it bolting last year amd they all came at once. LOVE red onions.

One day I was in the river side thinking where I can go to get solution. so a lady walked to me telling me why am I so sad and i open up all to her telling her my problem, she told me that she can help me out, she introduce me to a doctor who uses herbal medication to cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS and gave me his email, so i mail him. He told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is happening after two weeks the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body got vanished .if you need help, you can also email him at: (Realspellcasteronline@gmail com) or (Realspellcasteronline@gmail com) He also have a herbal cure for 6 DISEASES; also for HIV VIRUS AND MANY MORE, for more information (Realspellcasteronline@gmail com) i will like you all to help me thank Dr Lucky for saving my life so i make up my made to testify about his good work,i have nave see a good man like this before and beware of scams only Dr Lucky has the cure for herpes illness no fake no scam I Love You Dr Lucky Thanks So Much

Don't ignore, who will believe that herbs can cure seven years HERPES in my body, i never believe that this will work i have spend a lot when getting drugs from the hospital to keep me healthy, what i was waiting for is death because i was broke, one day i hard about this great man who is well know of Herpes and cancer cure, i decided to email him, unknowingly to me that this will be the end of the HERPES disease in my body, he prepare the herbal medicine for me, and give me instruction on how to take it, at the end of the two week, he told me to go to the hospital for a check up, and i went, surprisingly after the test the doctor confirm me negative, i thought it was a joke, i went to another hospital was also negative, then i took my friend who was also herpes positive to the Dr Saibu, after the treatment she was also confirm negative . He also have the herb to cure cancer and HIV virus please i want every one with this virus to be free, that is why am dropping his email address, drsaibu2@gmail. com do email him he is a great man. the government is also interested in this Dr Saibu, thank you for saving my life, and I promise I will always testify for your good work. contact him and also whatsapp him on +2348064438762
