Late Winter in the Garden
Many years ago I bought tomatoes and eggplants in early March. Then came a cold front, so I did not plant them. I kept them indoors, but they dried out and withered even though I watered them frequently. I revived them, then they dried out a ...

Traditional cider making
I am unfamiliar with the American term hard cider. We in the UK speak of sweet and dry cider, the dry being cider with more sugar brewed out of it. But thank you, it is good to know the various variations of the English language.

Traditional cider making
I love apple cider that has not been pasteurized when it is available in the fall (in the U.S.) I've also had some good hard cider. I don't drink alcohol much and mostly red wine. I think I'll look for some hard cider the next time I go shopping.

Late Winter in the Garden
Here our weather is currently spring-like, but cold fronts can change that quickly. Planting needs to wait until late March. Congratulations on becoming a grandparent again. I hope things go well and your grandchild is able to go home soon.

White fat is what Americans call Shortening. We would call it white fat or lard. Yellow fat would be butter or margarine.

Belfast; Titanic Hotel
The tiles in the bar have been locked away in boxes for over 00 years and hadn't seen the light. The only others like these are at the bottom of the Atlantic. It was very moving emotionally .
