Re: A Glimmer of hope for all renters...

We have a place in Cornwall with 1/4 acre of garden (albeit untended for 8 years) a pond, and a hedge of plum trees and out nearest neighbours are 1/4 mile away. Our landlady is a darling.

From one woody to another, tell him that he neeeds to do more if that is the standard of work he does. Really good and also a lovely way to use an otherwise 'orrible lant :thumbleft:

Re: Bottling Nettle Ale

Good way to use those insidious plastic bottles including the milk ones. Watch them and when they get tight just slack off the top and let some of the pressure out. If they do burst you get the beer over the floor but no glass shattering.

Re: Royal Cornwall Show

Pretty good overall. I was there for the first two days so didn't get rained on at all. A lot of people browsing and making enquiries and a few buyers. Here's a couple of pics of the stall (if that's OK) http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s89/bodrighy/misellaneous/th_P6050888.jpg http://i150.photobu...

Re: pests in my kitchen!! please help!!

This brings back memories. When I first went to sea the cooks used to tip all the cereals for breakfast onto the hotplate on the stove before serving it up for breakfast. Loads of little wevils used to come running out and 'cooking' on the plate. The cereal was all put into a bowl and put on the tab...

Re: Royal Cornwall Show

Hi, We are hoping to go. It would be Thursday or Saturday. If we come on Thursday I will keep an eye out. My husband is interested in woodturning. We haven't been to the show for a few years now. It has something for everyone. I look at all the craft stands and John goes off to talk to all his farm...

Re: Eco disinfectant?

Grapefruit seed extract, lemon, vinegar, Lavendar, cedar, cinnamon, mint all have disinfetant and / or anti bacterial properties. Try googling 'Natural disinfectants' there is quite a range.

Perennial or not?

Apparently a good number of the things that we grow as annuals are in fact perennials. I was wondering if anyone has tried growing tomatoes, runner beans etc as perennials? If so where and how?

Something for the honey lovers

Been revamping my website and realised I diidn't have any of these left so needed to knock up a few more.
