Re: Grow lettuce in pop bottles

Maybe your soil is quite acid, or alkaline?

Re: Self sufficient skills List

You're both cruising (for a bruising)! OK, I can spin, weave, knit, crochet, sew by hand and machine. Some of those better than others but if cold enough I'm sure the other skills would speed up. :lol: I also have a huge stash of fabrics and yarns so it wouldn't necessarily be from scratch. I can al...

Re: Leaf mould

I agree with Flo. If you're going to use plastic bags I'd poke a few holes to allow a bit of airflow and water to get in and out.

Re: Berry identification urgent !!!

Sorry for the delay in answering. I'm afraid it's difficult to identify but it might be worth calling the poisons unit to see if they can help. I'm not suggesting the berries are poisonous but it is definitely not worth the risk.

Re: Pet gripes

3 .. those same "celebrity" chefs have each ingredient in a separate bowl, use another bowl to mix something, then transfer the contents to another bowl to mix something else, then another....... You can tell they don't do their own washing up. Maybe we should move this thread to the 101 section - I...

Re: How to post a picture

Horsetail is an absolute nightmare - but a great herb, source of silica, for various ailments etc. I can't imagine where its correct environment would be for growing. It just dominates everywhere it gets a hold. Over here privet lines many a garden and street, neatly (or often not so) trimmed hedgin...

Re: Raised Beds

So do you only need two sides, with the walls forming the other two? I'd go for brick if it were me. They are quite expensive though but easier to meet up to the existing walls. I don't use liners in my wooden raised beds. Used pallet wood works well. It's easy to get hold of (often given away) and ...

Re: Second flowering of peppers.

I doubt they'll get enough light as the winter draws in. However if they're not taking up room you need for something else it might be worth a crack. Maybe a full-spectrum daylight bulb? We've just chopped down our chillies and put some into winter storage because they had almost completely blocked ...

Careful, you'll be challenging Odsox in the 12 month tomato stakes soon. Consider 12 month lettuce a gateway plant. :lol:

Re: No plastic

I wrote a response to this yesterday and somehow lost it!

Briefly, having found plastic-wrapped coconuts in the not too distant past, it's encouraging to see any company starting to reduce their plastic use.
