Things You Shouldn’t Keep In the Fridge

This might be interesting for you.

Julie's Journal

My fridge broke down and died today, luckily there wasn’t much in it and all that was lost was some cheese which went to feed the birds. This made me ponder about our reliance on fridges and what things people often keep in the fridge that would be much better out of it, so here is a quick guide, I am sure you will think of lots of other things as well.

Onions Placing your onions inside your refrigerator will eventually end up turning them moldy and soft. Unpeeled onions should be kept out of plastic bags and fridge. One of the reasons for this is because unpeeled onions require and need air exposure for maximum life. If you have peeled an onion though, then you should keep it in the fridge, in a covered container.
Aged Cheese Most people think that because cheese is mostly made of milk, it…

PASSIFLORA MRS CONSTANCE ELLIOTT

What is not to like about this beauty ?! This is an easy climber for a big space as she grows about 6 meters (20 feet) in one season, so I cut it back in Spring. The only disadvantage is that it looks death in Winter, but then come Spring , from the “dead” stems new shoots emmerge and they grow fast, really fast and at the same time the buds emmerge and then it blooms untill the first frosts.

Have a great day all !

I don’t know why but everything is growing like mad this year, in the garden and in the greenhouse. The only disadvantage are the snails, never had so many!!!

Here are some pictures of the greenhouse.

SNACK TOMATOES

GRAPES, they will be dark blue when  ripe, they look a bit odd but that is cos you don’t have to cut the excess grapes yourself, this grape loses the excess grapes it self (does anyone know what the english word is for this ?)
