Rendering RSS on my blog or wiki

I have today installed JP’s Get RSS Feed, a wordpress plugin. I shall be using this to replace my delicious linkrolls using the delicious rss location. See also my snip on Delicious Linkrolls.

It requires a shortcode/codesnip to invoke it’s parameters e.g

 
[jp-rss-feed 
    url="http://feeds.del.icio.us/v2/rss/davelevy/convoyswharf" 
    numitems="7" getdesc="50" ] 

I should document this differently, but the snip must be on one line, and no space between the [ & the ‘jp’.

There’s a few more parameters which are documented on their home page

Another widgit

and now we have another RSS rendering widget

This was found to be broken on 17th October 2016.

delicious linkrolls

Time to revise this page. It was originally created to document the runes on how to use the delicious provided javascript linkroll generator. I originally saved the code as text in a page, and latterly, from Oct 2013 used Artiss Embeded Code and I located the scripts in code objects. delicious withdrew the javascript. I implemented JP’s Get RSS Feed to fix the withdrawal of the delicious javascript; Continue reading “delicious linkrolls”

Planning

I have been shopping at country market; and picked up some leaflets

  1. Slug resistant plants

2015

I moved in October 2015, so a new garden, the focus will now be on the allotment.

The “for dummies” have got into it, here’s two references from them. They may help at the house.

  1. The essentials of how to plan a garden
  2. Choosing a garden theme series

At the allotment there’s a lot of nettles, I might get a sickle, there is one for Sale at “my allotment plot”

  1. Ginger Part Deux, see http://www.tropicalpermaculture.com/growing-ginger.html
  2. Late Vegetable Plantings , parsnips, carrots, cauliflower and cabbage
  3. 10 best herbs grow containers

2014

Ginger would be fun, but indoors or green house needed, again; advice is to buy root from specialist food shop. The guardian writes about it here.

2013

I put some Fennel in two weeks ago, the slugs have had one, so I put down some pellets; we’ll see. Perhaps it needs to go in earlier to beat the slugs, but I don’t think you can. Also got bollocked for using the pellets. 5 August 2013

Meuvens wrote last week and among other things offered some bluebell bulbs for delivery in September to November; they need planting dry in the Autumn. Over the last two weekend’s I have been down the Garden Centre for inspiration, most of this is for next year now. Although I bought two agapanthus plants. I reckon one of these wooden planters and two of the trellis below would be good for salads and beans and sweet peas. 4 August 2013

 woodenplanter  trellis

Some plants took my fancy, some Red Hot Pokers, Kniphofgia, Verbenia and some Veronicium Fascinatrium. What is that black leaved bush we have in the back bed? 4 August 2013

The planter is out of control, the rosemary and curry plants need replacing. 6 July 2013

2012

I need to keep this up to date, but some ideas from last weekend

  • Put some trellis/spires in for the sweet peas and beans
  • Weed the trumpet plants and the edges, some of the grass clover has invaded the bed
  • Cut back the Rosemary, Lavender, Curry Plants & Planters
  • Scatter the Lavender, Alium and Garlic Seeds
  • Get some more Garlic Bulbs and sow
  • Plan something behind the trees
  • Cut back the planters and gibbet plants, especially the new clematis

2011

This web site was unavailable during the summer of 2010, and it wasn’t a good year for my gardening.

This year I bought a new cover for the green house and had a go at some Corn (again), Basil (risky), Marmande & Cosutoluto Fiorentino tomatos and some Chilli’s including Lombardo, all from seed.The Corn and Basil are coming though, the others are not, probably because of the age of the seeds. I originally brought them from Gardening Express, and its almost certainly caused by the age of the seeds and my storage technique. I have a couple of Apache Chilli plants which are surving, but the Jalepeno died of thirst in the greenhouse. Perhaps I’ll try next year!

I put in some Field Scabious and if I start earlier next year I should consider some more flowers. There are some great blue cornflowers in the street on the way to the bus stop and I tried some bluebells, which should be a weed, but we’ll see, they might be something best started from seed.

I tried to seed some english meadow,and fancy grasses under the trees.

I need to prune the black leafed shrub & the pieris in the autumn.

Maybe I should try some raspberries in the back (sunny) corner.

2009

26th May 2009

Last Summer, the Rosemary was attacked by somehting leaving white spittle on some of the branches, these then browned and died, and the grass in the planter doesn’t look that healthy either. I checked on Google and got the following links

I used a google on words, “rosemary blight plant spit”, but maybe should have tried pest.

London

A city I know well so maybe I should share some stuff with you.

London-w650

The page was probably created as something my US colleagues might refer to, although I never put a “Hotels” linkroll on the page. I was also playing with an ambition to spend a Citybreak in London, I had lived there for many years before moving to Hampshire, and always said to myself that it was great to visit the museums, theatres, concerts and cimemas, but never did. This page was not updated between Feb 2009 and June 2013, although both my google maps and flickr sites were. On this page, I have a google map of my places in the ‘City’ and West End, although it expands to all over the world; it’s my “saved places” map, and I now have a South London & City map which is more up to date. I also have some links to my bookmarks and two linkrolls for restaurants and exhibitions. I also point at my public photos on Flickr.

Places

Firstly, a google map, with placemarks for places to eat and things to do. N.B. I rarely stay in a Hotel and so there are non marked.

Links

I have a number of bookmarks in delicious, I use ‘London’ as a tag, and good secondary tags are Restaurant, ‘food+drink’, exhibition and News. The first list below is restaurants and a couple of web directories. The second list is of London exhibitions I have tagged, the third is a bunch of German bierkellars posted in the evening standard to watch or celbrate Germany’s vicotry in the 2014 World Cup.

This wiki now has a London tag.
