Second batch. I left it too long after the second proving again because by the time it had actually risen last night I wanted to go to bed. So it collapsed again, but I remoulded it and baked it anyway.

The recipe says 35-40 minutes. The previous loaf took about 25 minutes but my mum and dad thought it was underdone. So I tried putting this one in for 30 minutes. Unfortunately, it's burnt! The picture doesn't convey how burnt it is.

I left it too long on the second proving (overnight instead of a few hours) and it went flat.

They can't be too small if they're bigger than a bear!

CO2, climate change 

I was trying to get my Trash folder up to 1979 (the year I was born) but overshot!

I thought these socks were autumnal when I bought them, but now I think they might be mulled-wine-themed? I thought the leafy bits were autumn leaves, but maybe they're cloves? Opinions, please! You can't do polls and pictures in the same toot, so I'll reply to this with a poll.

Does anybody want a book called Getting Started in Permaculture by Ross and Jenny Mars? I'm happy to post it to anyone in the UK.

Spider plants: picture update 

And these are the other two where I just shoved the "spiderettes" in and hoped for the best. Six weeks on.

A couple of stragglers that I planted out today. They look a lot less healthy, but we'll see.

Picture of spider plants 

My spider plant had a load of "spiderettes" which were draining energy from the main plant, so I've propagated them the lazy way by just shoving loads of them into a couple of pots and hoping for the best. We'll see what happens!

TFW your eyebrows are on point, your earrings work great with your necklace and yet you have a nagging feeling that there's something missing from your outfit.

One of the things I love about this time of year is that camellias all look like they're taking a breath just before launching into 🎶 "This is my moment..." 🎶

You wanted some fresh air. But I want to explore.
