Garden – February 2023

26/02/2023 Leave a comment

he driest February since 1993. During the month I strimmed the edges of the lawn and then spiked it. It seems to be growing well despite the end of month coldness. On the Potato Chitting front all the seed Potatoes now have eyes and they are growing well. The first Casablancas will go in at the end of March, weather willing. I have some Spring Onions, now growing well on the window sill. The Tesco Bag for Life has come off them and they are lapping up the late winter sun. During the next month, I will be mowing the lawn, putting moss killer on it and prepping Potato bags.

Sunny but with a very cold wind

Tiny Birthday Blogging

18/02/2023 Leave a comment

February is the month when you start to notice lighter mornings and evenings. Myself, I could do with double lighter mornings and forget the evenings. It’s all about the early morning starts to Beanos and driving in the dark on unlit roads is not my bag. However, February is also the month of Tiny Rebel’s birthday and this year they are eleven. So, maybe not on the exact day but it’s off to their Newport Bar to try out their Birthday Brews.

Drizzle outside

The Birthday Ales from the Left and the Right. All Keg.

Left Hand Side

And from the other end of the bar.

Right Hand Keg

They say Blue, I say Green and not exactly sour

Blue Razz Hard Candy Ice Sour

And time for a quick pit stop.

Better than a picture of the toilet itself

So, is there a rule that birthday beers need extra long names? The second beer was Cookie Dough Biscuit Mix Millionaire Shortbread. It really tasted of cookie dough and I really liked it.

Food Based Birthday Beer

And on to my last Birthday Ale as I was getting sleepy and I met someone from the Internet IRL. Fruit based beer for the old man with the loyalty app please?

Peach Ice Tea IPA

So I left with still five Birthday beers left to try.

The Same But Slightly Different

11/02/2023 Leave a comment

It’s another Emergency Beano but what with the Rugby, slight tweaks to the schedule and a Spoons’ Full English to boot. Mainly because I feel like one and hang the recent price increase. That is the true spirit of an Emergency Beano.

The John Wallace Linton – Newport

The big news at the John Wallace Linton. They have gone all Pen and Wig. You just show your CAMRA card and you get the Real Ale beer discount. This is wonderful,really wonderful.

Large Full English, currently £6.34

50% extra butter and the beans could have been hotter but overall tidy. I usually get 100% extra butter when I ask for extra. However, I’m didn’t pay any extra.

Actually went down a treat

Rather superior Glamorgan Brewery glass with Boss Boom in it. Mostly conflicted, however as it’s The Pen & Wig it’s always a positive.

OK, so it is Boss.

Back to Micros, in the Awesome Little Taphouse and it’s Magic Dragon from Wrexham. Not sure if it’s made from real Sheep. Could be an Untappd near miss?

From Big Col Land

And on to Tiny Rebel, where it was all Rugby. However downstairs in The Cwtch it was all Norwegian Yeast and Table Tennis.

Tiny Welcome Board
Tiny Table Tennis
Used my Loyalty Card too

And really fast WiFi too. Back next week for their Birthday.
