Been there, done that. It's hard work for not much return
I agree, that's why I have never even considered selling my produce, I can't be arsed with customers.
I make sure I only produce the (more or less) exact amount for what we can use, including eggs.

Re: Your diet

Well I eat just about every meat, plus just about every fish and shellfish, plus I eat a lot of vegetables as they're all free, plus I eat a lot of fruit and I have a sort of medical diet as well.
So I ought to tick all the boxes as you didn't include omnivorous :iconbiggrin:

Re: Your diet

Why didn't you include "omnivorous" in the list as that's what most people are.
"Meat eater" implies no fruit or vegetables in that diet.

Or am I being obtuse? :iconbiggrin:

I miss England!
So do I, like the proverbial hole in the head !
I'm afraid England has become a nasty alien country in the 25 years since I left, but that's a whole different topic.

I cant recycle my cardboard here
May I ask why you can't recycle cardboard?
Cardboard and paper is readily recyclable everywhere in Ireland.
Not that I recycle my loo roll tubes as they are much too valuable for sowing parsnips and sweetcorn in, in fact I don't get enough.

Yes, I expect you got the "I am a dirty spammer" bit as well. :lol:
I have no idea why, it was certainly long before I joined.

Re: White Vinegar

Probably because white vinegar is distilled like whiskey and brown malt vinegar is brewed like beer.
Same reason a bottle of whiskey is more expensive than a bottle of beer. :drunken:

New season veg

Easter Sunday dinner and the first of the new season vegetables.
New potatoes just big enough to be called potatoes and a Spring cabbage.
Not that it's spring weather, it's been lashing down all day.

Re: Has Spring sprung?

Oh dear, I don't remember that being forecast when I saw the UK weather man after the 10 o'clock news last night. Although if it only happened in the north highlands it probably wasn't worth mentioning by the London based BBC New Zealand weather company. We get that down here, if it's not going to a...

Re: Hops

I remember when I lived in Scotland that there was reputed to be an old settlement site at the bottom end of Loch Lomond that had hops. As I grew up involved in hops I just HAD to go and find them, and sure enough they do grow (and ripen) in Dunbartonshire, at 56 degrees north. I grow them here pure...
