Did you say "what's a knife boy like you doing in a jobbie like this"?

Oh, sorry, that was the plumber :-D

H'actually Island, one of the lads is incredibly knowledgeable about trees and all things 'orticultural. I asked him, before he lopped off a long branch of my Mimosa tree, if it made good logs for the fire and he shook his head and said it was from the legume family and would be too soft and dry.

Now, if only I'd known you were making pickle to-day . . . . .


Island Report 9 Oct 2012 22:06

Chutney Wend, chutney :-D

So do you think your lentil off-cut would pickle well?


PricklyHolly Report 9 Oct 2012 22:27

Was your lumber called Jack by any chance Wend??


Wend Report 9 Oct 2012 22:28

Legume off-cut, Island, put yer specs on O-O :-S

Puts specs on O-O - oooh, chutney, luverley - hope you're going to bring a few jars to the next meet



Island Report 9 Oct 2012 22:33

Lentils is legumes Wend :-)

My chutney should be well matooowered by then :-D Do you think Prickles could be lured by a jar? :-D


Wend Report 9 Oct 2012 22:34

Yes, he might've been Prickles, but I didn't see him go to the lavatory. I did spot him popping into the greenhouse though - he probably thought the tomatoes needed watering :-D


Island Report 9 Oct 2012 22:38

Just don't hang yer smalls out when a lumberjack comes a-lopping Wend

All that chopping has tired me out so I'm orff to me boboes :-)


Wend Report 9 Oct 2012 22:44

Nah, don't think even your pickle, oops sorry chutney, will tempt her :-(

Fancy that, lentils being legumés - slaps me thigh, learns something new every day I does! They don't look anything like Mimosa trees either :-D


Wend Report 9 Oct 2012 22:46

Its all right for you Island running amok waving your Chopper about .
You would get away with something like that, but if a fella did the same... Well!!!!!

:-D :-D :-D


Island Report 10 Oct 2012 11:30

Well Jimbob, I think it might be the running amok that gets you into trouble :-) :-)

Btw...we've had a great chilli harvest and plenty more to pick :-D :-D

I was late doing mine from the previous years seed and they didn't take off.
A very poor crop this year, but not to worry I still have 4 small jars of chili powder I made from last years crop.

Made some Spicy Tomato Soup using my own Tomato`s and Chili powder on Monday.
I made too much, lol, had to put a load in the freezer. BOY! is it hot and spicy, might be a bit too much for most people but I love it.
It should be great for those freezing winter evenings we've got coming up soon.


Wend Report 10 Oct 2012 12:06

Glad to hear that you've had some 'orticultural success at last Island :-D

How do you make chilli powder Jimbobs and could I make Spicy Green Tomato soup? :-D


Island Report 10 Oct 2012 12:25

No request for my recipe I see :-(

Stuff 'em. :-D


Island Report 10 Oct 2012 12:28

Wend, I'll have you know I have cereal crops :-)

Just thumbing through my recipe books :-D

Jimbob, your soup sounds just up my fellas street. :-D
I'll send a pic of the chillis


Wend Report 10 Oct 2012 12:38

Sorry Island, but I was assuming you would be giving me a jar ;-)

Can you send me a pic of your chillis too please.
