Good evening people,

I am fresh from carrying out this trial.
There is much to be done but I feel it is right to share with you the initial results.
New potatoes are a pain to prepare and we have some knobbley one, nice taste but difficult to clean.
I had finished with mixing cement and the washed out mixer drum was tilted to drain.
I suddenly thought that it was just a big pebble polisher and it could clean knobbley spuds just as well.
I put the spuds in with a one bucket of sand and one bicket of chippings up to 25 mil (one inch). I ran it for a half hour while preparing the rest of the meal.

It has worked fine but can be improved.

The spuds should be counted into the drum so that you know when you have counted them all out.
Use less sand and a finer harder gravel. Pea gravel used for paths might do.

Those of you born after 1980 should get a grown up to help them.

As an afterthought - there are those who may think that my mentions of concrete amount to a fetish and should bo posted in another place.
This apparent concrete obsession is because the house is on a slope and all my gardening is 50% civil engineering.
I had to build a 4 foot high wall and have 40 tons of infill delivered just to have a patio.

Anyway - if you do try the new method of spud bashing please let me know how it goes.


Have a nice day.
I am not working next week.

Just let me be the first to ask:

What indeed are you smoking?

Morning PsychWardMike,

Sorry - I don't smoke anything at all.

My body is a temple - although offerings of red wine or Guinness are accepted.

The mixer was there when I needed it.
I don't think I would drag it out specially.

I also think I released the results too early.
It needs more research.
There were remarks at dinner.
Things like "These potatoes taste gritty."

Less sand next time perhaps?

Must go - time for a lie down

Hmmm...less sand and more small gravel should do the trick. Really small gravel, like around the size of fish tank rocks.

PWM, have you ever had the joy of peeling tons of potatos before? It's not fun, especially if you have arthritis (I do, I don't know if Misty does). The most potatos I've ever peeled before was two 10 lb. bags for Christmas dinner one year, and trust me, by the time it was done I had cuts up and down my hands and fingers, and I was eyeing my rock polisher.

pfft, I was mixing mortar when I was a wee nipper....well ok, 16, but still, I'm 20 now and I'm quite sure you don't need to be 24 to successfully use a mixer....just be careful not to get the shovel caught in the mixing blade thingys....wrists get broken that way, I've heard of labours doing somersaults just to stop their wrists breaking wink.gif tongue.gif

Morning Feyliya,
Oh afternoon

I have never peeled that many in a single go.
Ref the many cuts - could you not have opened the wine afterwards?

You seem young to have arthritis.
Is this the result of an injury or something that runs in the family?

I am lucky in that most of my body still works.
I was saved from the excesses of early youth by the gift of poverty.
Widowed mother and 5 of us children. Dad was a fireman in the blitz - Bristol and Bath mostly.
Anyway I developed pain and weakness in the left shoulder that, I was told, was the result of a surfing injury from 5 years previous. I could not swing round and lift my camera over onto the front seat of the car, weighed about 10 pounds.
A friend used to sell these magnetic bracelets which I thought were just a snake oil remedy. He let me borrow his and two weeks later I realised I had just lifted my camera without pain.
So I bought one and have not had a problem since.

They are not expensive.
Try an alternative therapy place.
I know your Food and Drug Administration do not like snake oil so you might not be able to get one..
If you want I might be able to find the company in England the makes them.

Fey, darling, I'm from Kentucky. My grandparents owned a farm. I've peeled fifty pounds of potatoes in one sitting before, and it was actually fairly enjoyable (good family makes the time go bye.) As is, I didn't mean any offense, just a joke.

I deffinitely couldn't have opened the wine afterwards. I was 13 last time I consented to do that!

And yes, I am really young to have arthritis. It does run in my family. I usually use Icy Hot and heating packs when it flares up. The magnetic bracelets don't work very well for me. Most of my arthritis is over-use induced. Twisting my hands too much and such like that. Not fun, especially considering I like carpentry and jewelry making.

Yeesh Mike. 50 lbs?!? No wonder you're nuts!

I know you didn't mean any offense. Neither did I.
