I'm now self sufficient in ...

I've just had a delivery of an enormous pumpkin from a local veg growing scheme as none of the members took it in their veg share. It weighs. Have phoned the local family who are always in line for such things. We'll do a sharing no doubt in some form or other. Does anyone else get unexpected delive...

Re: Fried apple

Well I typed in fried apples to the search engine of my choice and was answered with a page full of assorted recipes. Here's one such recipe so it's obviously not just you.

Hi Taff
I'm told the Cornish are just English Welshmen - you'll be fine. Nice to know you've seen the world and decided that home is best. :lol:

Re: Banish Plastic

Looking back at the discussion - mostly supermarket shopping plastic - well now that £5 and £10 notes in England are plastic - hmm, you ain't going to ban plastic when shopping. If you use a card it's plastic and if you use money it's plastic. :wink: Now that does make it hard to cut down on plastic...

Re: This board ain't self sufficient

Ha a nice frost here - suspect the slugs will be looking for warm places. Let's hope that we get more of the frosts that are forecast for this week. My allotment slug population is too high after a warm winter last year.

Re: The Fashion for frugal blogs

There's one that I read because it's well written that actually used the word scrimping. And this is one where writer lives in Cornwall but has bought a house in France which is being done up (and let out to cover some of the costs when family is not in residence). That's really OTT but never mind.

Re: Being self sufficient in 2017

I wonder if the Wombat's list ever involves starting a job to find that two or three other things need to be done in order to be able to get on with it?

Perhaps it's just my planning .............

That is some to do list Mr Nev Wombat. Doesn't sound like a one year list mind. :iconbiggrin:

Re: This board ain't self sufficient

I'll lend you the frost outside Weedo - we are getting winter here. Frost is the best cure for all sorts of insects. Oops not what you want if you are planting up though. Dunno any other cure other than clearing out the space for predators to eat said earwigs.

Re: The Fashion for frugal blogs

Yeah Ina that's true. But I often wonder about these people who do the frugal blogs and shows. Have any of them been so poor they've really had to be frugal or is it just a way to make money?

The Fashion for frugal blogs

There seem to be more blogs on being frugal than that. When you dig into them, most of the advice is doing more for yourself. Or being self sufficient but it's never called that. Isn't making do, mending, home cooking, growing our own, making our own from what we have, swapping, giving what we don't...

Re: Ophelia

Suppose that it owes you nothing then Tony. Just a shame that you found out in an emergency that it didn't work. There's a moral there somewhere. Same as with me - the winds here blew polycarb sheets out of the cheapy greenhouse I was bought for Christmas two years ago. Found one sheet over the hedg...

Ah Maggie we'd be a busy board if we let the spammers in :wink:

Glad to know Tony is sort of OK - shame about his generator though.
