If you are writing from the United States, you could contact your local Cooperative Extension office, and they can provide local, science-based info for you- good luck!

Re: let me ask my silly question of the day

We have had dreadful trouble with possums eating the rhubarb leaves-i believe them to be poisonous, but the possums have only abated in their quest now we have covered the rhubarb with nets-Now the potatoes are being eaten:(
Another question. i was trying to be clever and make some spun toffee decorations for a cake. Followed the instructions and made wonderful long glistening strands which we formed into shapes.
HOWEVER in around 3 hours it disappeared leaving only some sticky spots. We tried it again and the same happened. What did we do wrong.........I have only wasted 2 cups of sugar. I wished I had photographed what we had created-they were beautiful-but disappear.

I have been told rhurbarb doesn't like to be sugared before cooking /baking it otherwise it dissolves, add sugar when you take out of the oven caster/or icing sugar I never know which is which

zucchero a velo for me

Well, I also thought about rhubarb planting, but have no clue about all the "ifs" and "hows", although a friend told me to ask his mother, who has a large plant in her garden.

I do not dare asking silly questions about ginger again, I have three round pots now filled with roots (I suppose) and keep buying fresh one for my tea, I hope to see it flourishing this year  smile

Re: let me ask my silly question of the day

The silly question that i wanted to ask is: when soup is re heated in a microwave why is it so long...knowing nothing about average tempertures and so...a bowl of soup will take 3 1/2 mins to become warm...another 2mins to become hot.

Should i seperate that bowl in two, to heat faster or is the liquid density the same both ways..question  help

Re: let me ask my silly question of the day

It might be to do with the shape of the bowl Kye.
I like my soup in a deep bowl, but the microwaves won't reach into the middle so it takes the outside heat to gradually warm up the middle.
I stir every minute to make it quicker! Most soups take about 2 and a half minutes for my bowl.
If I am serving more than me, heating each bowl separately would be quicker! smile
