Re: The Raised Vegetable Bed Handbook

Thanks Green Aura I enjoyed putting it together. I learnt a lot too. I'd recommend putting an e-book together if you have an interest in any topics. It can be a bit daunting at first with the pdf's, epubs etc, but it's well worth the effort. If I can be of assistance to anyone starting on the e-book...

Re: Organics.ie website

Well, it's been two years since I set the Organics.ie website up.... It was a bit of a flop really... more down to my lack of time building the site up and contacting organic companies. The project was a bit too big ( I was trying to be all things to all (organic) people) so I have decided to set up...

Uses for old CD's

I don’t know about you but we are getting more and more free CD’s given to us with newspapers and magazines. I have mentioned before that they make great bird scarers if they are tied up and left to flap about in the wind. I have been asking around and built up a bit of a collection of other uses fo...

Re: Allotment Advice :)

Hi I like the idea of micro allotments....If you can wheel the barrow to it to collect your veggies then that's perfect. The idea of utilizing a neglected area or even getting together with locals to take over a neglected large private garden locally is a good idea...although the legals would have t...

Re: Woody vegetables

Hi Cochlear

It sounds to me that you need to take advanage of growing your own and eat them earlier. It's a real treat that we don't have to wait until they are shop size to pick and eat them....delicious.....Sow in succession for a long season....

cheers

Re: Got my Allotment, need some advice

Hi Jared. Great looking piece of ground... it might be fair to say there hasn't been many chemicals on that land for a while..... I lived in Nottingham for a few years near the Mapperley allotments. It's a fantastic place and people have actually started to live there nearly full time. It is a great...
