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Often sales are stock that don't sell anyway or attic clearing (left over stock that is perfectly good but out of date but that's another matter).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...

Re: Sales

I did go out and pick up a radio that doesn't play CDs for the sitting room after the sales. Pure Evoke never seems to come up in the sales mind you for some reason. I did decide I didn't need one that does internet radio mind. Had some sense. Maybe if I save up I could have the one that I dream of ...

Re: Veg seed viability

With brassicas of all sorts you can be quite lucky with seeds carrying on from one year to the next and a few after that. Depending on how you store them of course.

There's a lesson about not buying more than you need or forgetting to sow them of course. :lol:

Re: Sales

I didn't think I needed much in the way of seeds till I looked at their offers last Friday with the seed box by my side. I've got the trial size items that I would use. I'd love a Bose sound system but £450 is an awful lot of money for a radio that plays CDs. And it's gone back up again to the odd £...

Re: Sales

I did after all fall into the bad ways of buying in the Black Friday sales. DT Brown the seed people are changing warehouses and were having a bit of a clearing out of seeds. I quite like their seeds so decided to take advantage of their offers to top up the seed box with some things I didn't have t...
