APRIL 2020 ANSWERS

DUE TO this coronavirus crisis, many of us may have

more time to spend in the garden this summer. As garden

centres closed at the end of March it was difficult to get

hold of seeds (apart from online/mail order), so maybe

a 'quick fix' of bedding plants when you can get hold of

them is needed. These short-lived but brightly coloured

plants cheer up any summer garden.

rate) or 1890 940 300 in the Republic of Ireland.

BRAIN SIZZLING

SuDoKu

FILL in all the squares in

the grid so that each

row, each column and

each of the 3x3 squares

contains all the digits

from 1 to 9.

It's generally assumed safe to plant

bedding plants out from mid-May

onwards after being hardened off

(gradually acclimatised to outdoor

conditions).

The blues and purples of low-growing

Lobelia, planted alternately or in

blocks of colour with white Alyssum,

look stunning at the front of a border.

For height, plant Begonia, Geranium,

Petunia or Busy Lizzie behind them.

These bright, flamboyant blooms are

so eye-catching. Cosmos, Snapdragon

and Rudbeckia bring an architectural

elegance to the back of the flower bed.

God is a great artist and bedding

plants in full bloom are a beautiful

masterpiece.

These and other bedding plants can

tolerate sunny and partial shade positions

in the garden. Give them a good

watering in their trays before planting.

Using a trowel, insert each plant so

that the top of the root ball is just

below the soil surface, and firm down

the soil. Water them in once planted

and keep moist on dry summer days.

Go on, get creative with colour in your

garden this summer!

Summer jobs

1. Deadhead flowers on bedding plants

to encourage new buds

2. Capture and store rainwater to use

on your garden

3. Plant up and hang out hanging

baskets

4. Keep on top of the weeding, making

sure to get as much root out as possible

to limit re-growth.

Flavours to Savour

Stuffed eggs with peppers & garlic mayo

Try these eggs stuffed with garlic, peppers and mayonnaise – simple yet

very tasty. They can be part of a main meal or used as a starter.

Always use fresh eggs; a top tip for checking if your eggs are fresh is to

put them in a bowl of water. If they stand up a little on the bottom of the

bowl, that’s OK, but if they start to float they are getting old. I always err

on the cautious side and don’t use them.

Ingredients

4 hard-boiled eggs, shelled

Half of a red pepper, finely

diced

Half of a green pepper, finely

diced

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp paprika

Salt and pepper to taste

7 tbsp of mayonnaise

2 tsp of vegetable oil

Serve with some salad that

you like

HELP FOR READERS

HOW TO KNOW JESUS

FOR YOURSELF

AS you have read through Good News,

we hope you have seen the difference

knowing Jesus Christ makes to people’s

lives.

If you would like to know more about

this, read on, or see: www. goodnewspaper.org.uk

and click on the Finding

Faith section.

THE CHRISTIAN FAITH is not some

philosophy, dreamt up to make

people feel better, or to be a crutch

in times of need. It is based on a

person. Our time itself is measured from

the day of his birth. His life is

a fact of history: Jesus Christ.

In Jesus, God became a man, lived

a perfect life, and died on a cross –

taking God’s punishment for all your

sins and mine. But he came back to life

to prove his power over death, then went

back to heaven and will

one day return again.

In Jesus, we are offered a person to

follow, a power to transform lives,

a purpose for living and eternal life.

If you would like to know Jesus Christ

for yourself...

1. Read aloud, meaningfully and

sincerely, the prayer opposite, and

2. Fill in the coupon below so we can

send you information to help you in

your new life.

Method

1. Put the vegetable oil in a frying pan and fry the red

and green peppers until cooked. Put aside on a plate.

2. Boil your eggs and take off the shells. Allow to go

cold, then cut in halves, spoon out the yolks and put

the yolks into a bowl.

3. Add salt and pepper to the yolks to your taste, then

the mayonnaise, garlic powder, paprika and your

cooked peppers. Mix together well, then carefully

spoon the mixture back into each egg half. Place in

fridge to chill.

Before serving, prep your plates with salad of your

choice and then put two egg halves on each.

Serves 4 people

PRAYER

Dear God, I believe Jesus died so

that I can be forgiven. I admit I

have done wrong things and not

lived my life how you want me to.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me, and come into

my life to help me live your way.

From this moment on, I want to

follow Jesus’ example and join

other Christians in serving you

and other people.

Amen.
