  • Thankyou Gardenglen, not good at taking tablets and to have to remember to do it 3 times a day is not good 🙂

    I haven’t got a monitor yet, did have a quick look at them but decided to wait and see what next lot of blood tests show in December.

  • Bobbee Thankyou for starting this interesting thread.

  • I bought a electric pressure cooker a couple of weeks ago,i have always been to scared to get one because of all the horror stories of them exploding. :ohmy:

  • 4gypsy we have done this but got a shed not a barn, with the shed we got higher pitch so it looked like a house roof.
    Our daughter has done a quaker barn.

    It is certainly the cheapest way to build, we done all the internal ourselves, 3 bedroom all big, bathroom & toilet combined, big laundry, lounge, kitchen, dining area, all open plan. the home…[Read more]

    Kerrip i agree with Humbug the best thing is get some books, alot of them have templates which makes it a bit easier.

    Ebay usually have mosaic books. I did have a lot of books but sold most of them as i really don’t have to do them anymore.

    I have done picture frames, mirrors, vases, pot plants (not plastic) stepping stones, and one 1 will never forget took ages, it was a huge big fibreglass ball that had been a water feature, so i proceeded to cover this thing in tiles, took for ever and within a month it had all fallen off. so 1 lesson don’t tile fibre glass.lol, or at least take…[Read more]

    Hi Kerrip, Yes i have done a fair bit of mosaic, as for tips none really, well maybe one don’t buy heaps of tiles off Ebay or you will end up with a whole cupboard full by the time this phase passes on.lol

    Even though i have so many glass tiles of all sizes,i decided normal tiles are really good to use go to tile shops and have a look at…[Read more]

    Thanks everyone

    Gardenlen if the frost won’t hurt them i might leave them alone, they are growing in fairly protected area, they were planted in a pot on top of the compost area, didn’t seem to be doing any good so i stopped watering it and it has taken off, i didn’t realise it had so many pumpkin’s on the vine. 🙂

  • replied to the topic Will Pumpkins ripen in the forum Vegetables 9 years, 2 months ago

    Steve i thought i read somewhere that they needed to be picked when the plant starts to die off or when the first frost hits. The plants are not dying off yet though, but i am sure they probably will after these frosts.

  • replied to the topic Will Pumpkins ripen in the forum Vegetables 9 years, 2 months ago

    Thanks Steve, these are 1/2 grown and too many to cook up in some way and freeze. 🙁

  • Thanks Dayla, just come back to say i found them, hubby thinks he can build one along similiar lines. 🙂

  • Ediedioh where do you purchase Dine-A-Chook feeder from please. 🙂

  • I find ice works, and it is cheap. 😆

  • Have just been out to read the gauge again, it was full again 117ml since last night bringing us a total of 293 ml since Sunday Night.

  • Morning Bobbie, All my beds are raised, last year was really good year, but not this year seems to be the harder you try the worse it gets. 🙁

    Have just about pulled everything out now, and with all this rain it would be finished anyway. We have had 170ml sunday night monday and have nearly another 80ml overnight and doesn’t look like stopping,…[Read more]

  • Porgey i did grow in pots first. I have no idea what has gone wrong, the Apple tree only had 2 apples, 3 Nectarines didn’t do anything no fruit what so ever, must admit to feeling very disillusioned at the moment. 🙁

    Lisanne, maybe not enough warm weather this year, or maybe they are meant to stay green, don’t believe how many different coloured…[Read more]

  • Hi Bobbee, was a terrible year for us here as far as veg’s go.

    Most of my seeds came from Earth Garden.

    Beans didn’t do any good

    Zucchini only one plant out of 3 done any good

    Squash i ended up pulling out and going to the nursery to get some more, but they also have been pretty average.

    Tomatoes from Earth garden didn’t do any good.
    Italian…[Read more]
