Re: December planting

Probably if it's outside but if you have window ledge space, some pots and soil indoors where it's warm and light you can grow a lot of herbs like chives and basil, spring onions worth a try and even lettuce.

Re: December planting

Hi sususanan, I think that the answer to your question is probably not a lot looking at the weather. It's a bit too cold for things like seeds. You might get some late winter onion sets and garlic sets in the ground as both need the cold to get them growing if you want to do vegetables. If you have ...

Re: Vertical gardening

Runner beans grow up. Try http://www.realseeds.co.uk/peas.html for Telephone Peas which are climbers and I've heard good words of those. You can try French beans, climbing varieties – try ‘Cherokee trail of tears’ also from Real Seeds which I've heard good words about. You could also do a search thr...

Re: For all you Linux fans ...

Long gone are the days when I want to fiddle with computer operating systems. So long as it works when I switch it on .... My technical support has always been teaching how to use all sorts of end applications - you'd be amazed how many office admin folks are not in control of the things they are su...

Re: Hello from Mid-Devon!

Hi Dave - good to meet you. It sounds as if you have lived an exciting retirement life. Do take the time to tell us more about the veg growing. Are any of the weeds edible? Mind - from experience, once they get a hold it can be a game getting rid. Weeds seem to be so much more hardy than things us g...

Ah the story of picky children. We have many laughs with my two grown up ones - the one who only ate chocolate flavoured when tiny is now firmly in the lots of vegetable camp while the one who ate up the vegetables now eats the chocolates. We parents survive.

Re: What's for the festive lunch 2017

Heck there are people here who really go to town - Maggie has been brewing for months from the sounds of it. The allotment with brassicas on has club root - didn't know when planting out so that's winter veg out from home supplies. Have potatoes and cooking apples in store. Assuming I'm not snowed i...

What's for the festive lunch 2017

So what have you all planned? And how much of it is home grown or home brewed? Even if you have raided stores or bought in how much is home made?

Re: Food waste

Yep Bernard but people do refuse to buy dried and tinned goods after their best before dates on all sorts of misinformed grounds. And these are examples of companies and people kicking back trying to change that mindset. It needs doing.

Food waste

Whilst scanning the news online as catch up two things jumped out at me: The East Anglia (independent) Co-op group selling dried and tinned items with expired best before dates: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-42217026 And this Danish shop working in the same area - you need the sound on for this...

Re: Sales

Often sales are stock that don't sell anyway or attic clearing (left over stock that is perfectly good but out of date but that's another matter). Possibly AO were clearing out a line that didn't sell. However AO has an advantage in being online only and not have bricks and mortar sites with rent an...
