Quick Links 17th October 2016

Each week I’ll try and post quick links to things that I’ve seen, read, inspired me or just sparked my interest in the previous week, with a little background and my thoughts and other things that I’ve been up to in the previous week. Mostly gardening, cooking and environmental stuff but not always.

Much as I love gadgets and things, I would have returned this kettle and just bought one that you actually have to go and switch on. After all you still need to put the tea / coffee in the cup, pour the water etc.

I didn’t have any luck growing pumpkins this year – although the slugs really enjoyed those that I did – so I bought a medium sized one from our local farm shop this week. My plan is to make pumpkin soup and possibly a few other things, depending on how much flesh I get from it. I then saw this video (one of my favourite TV chefs), so I’ll be giving this a try too!

  1. I haven’t grown large pumpkins this year, just the little ones that feed 2-4, plus butternut squashes. They got going slowly – largely because it was dry when I was on holiday and they just sat there until I came back and drenched them – but did well in the end.
