Is It Me - 29 June 2011

I have just read an article on why people are fat, on the BBC website, now these boffins have collected data over a 30 year period and they claim, get this, that the main reason people are overweight and obese is because....

and I quote:

"for those trying to control their weight, it is important to manage both how much and how often they eat."

The text in bold is my emphasis. But that is right, fat people eat too often, and too much. Well stone me. No big bones, underactive thyroid, genetic dispostion. 'Oi Fatty - you eat too much'.

Anway if you want a laugh at how your tax money pays for research grants in this, the full report from the BBC can be found here.

When I went back to the UK with Bulgarian neighbours, they could not believe how fat some people are in the UK. Don't get me wrong there are fat people here but the UK has well a larger portion of fat people.

I can't wait for the next study,

"Research has just shown that the abundance of very skinny African people has been blamed at them not eating enough."

Right far more importantly, my banana seeds have started to sprout, and their infamy has already caused them to have two visitors to check them out. If I ever get them to the size where banana's are actually growing on them I think I will have to open a theme park.

One of my Bananas from seed
This is an Ensente Venticosum, which in normal language is a Giant Abyssinian Banana and can grow to 14m in height! We shall see.

On to the cucumber conundrum. How many cucumber plants should you grow? I am still quite a novice and it can be quite difficult to know how many of anything to grow. Last year I didn't have enough (only 4 plants) this year I have about 20 dotted around the vegetable patch and at the moment I am up to my ears in the damn things. I have pickled a few jars, but I am also growing a special variety of gherkins just for this purpose as well. So if anyone out there (without being rude) knows what else I can do with cucmbers I shall start I thread on the forum. Free packet of banana seeds for the best idea.

My Gherkins
Todays crop of Gherkins!
