  1. anyone had any success controlling earwigs?
  2. It's above ground but a couple of meters head won't drive much. The pump does self-prime. Smallish pump but now I can run a hand spray-nozzle. I haven't tried it on the micro-emitters yet. There's no way in heck I'd want to dig a hole to bury the tank in our clay & bedrock.
  3. This topic reminds my of my time in Uni, when we staged the great winter broccoli rebellion. It was one of the few available winter veg my house could afford but we had had enough! Last week I did last-gasp sous-vide lamb shanks (post-sear, then coated in dukkah and quickly crisped again). My lamb lady said, the slow cuts will go into sausage for the summer.
  4. Fitty-fitty. Here's to Nick and Nora.

    Nasty Ingredients

    I like blue cheese but it usually makes my mouth itch. Took a long time for me to realize that isn't normal and I must have an allergy.
  6. I finally got a pump for it. I had been using it only for deep watering trees and a low-pressure bobble sprinkler that couldn't keep up with everything.
  7. I only have one rain barrell. Here it is on its side before it was installed
  8. Cut them in half and fry the everlovin' shit out of them in olive oil. Any leaves that fall off should end up black.
  9. I thought I killed a fig tree off by over-watering but it is sprouting new leaves this spring. I have another in a pot that should go in the ground but it apparently grows huge so I want to figure out how to keep it root-bound and I don't have a good spot for it.

    Costco

    I do like Costco chooks, but feel a bit guilty about those big-breasted cage birds. I think the main thing is that they have the brining and the timing to a science. I don't buy rotisserie chicken here because they are expensive and not very well done. Where my partner used to live there was a Charcoal Chook shop that made wonderful smelling but pretty tough grilled chicken. For home, I've actually started going to smaller free-range birds for rotisserie over the barbie to try to get better taste.
  11. Whisky Mac You could start with the Kindred Cocktails equal parts Ginger Wine and Scotch Whisky, but I usually add a lemon slice and hot water to taste. Green Chartreuse is a nice addition.
  12. How to make good cocktails
  13. Curry paste isn't that hard to make but I usually buy it. Even the major supermarkets herein Australia have several brands of the major varieties, Massaman, yellow, green, and red. You can also get pre-jarred simmer sauces, if you can't manage to mix paste with coconut milk.
  14. Campari seems to bridge categories well. I recently took the Negroni back to a highball by replacing the vermouth with bitter lemon.
