Re: Too much veg!

Just compost them - it's just not worth wasting time trying to do things with stuff when you have a glut. I'm sick of working myself to death and having no life and spending all summer in the kitchen. Courgettes go soft really quickly anyway even in the fridge. I must have composted at least 8 carr...

Re: Too much veg!

Even if he is the grower and you the processor - maybe you should get together for next year and make a plan to avoid gluts like these? I know, can't be avoided altogether, as it also depends on weather etc, but still... It doesn't seem entirely fair on you to be left with heaps of stuff to do some...

Too much veg!

Hello I have got sooo much veg at the moment that my o/h has brought back from our allotment that I am quite frankly over-whelmed by it all! Tons of courgettes and marrows, have frozen some sliced courgette, made loads of courgette soup (resembles the look of dish water) given some away but still ha...

Re: Where can I find nets to hang in my garage

I'm driving past in a few weeks if you are still stuck and want some nets- on my way to Wales to visit the folks! What way do you go to Wales? My o/h is in North Wales at the mo travelling back tonight (also visiting parents) though he tends to travel back really late to avoid meeting any traffic w...

Re: Where can I find nets to hang in my garage

I get carrots delivered in nets weekly over the winter for us, the dog and the horse (we all love carrots!). I keep the nets, but I have quite a lot- some spare. Not sure how far away you are (Some bits of Northamptonshire are close to the Cambridgshire border). If you think you will be passing Hun...

Re: Where can I find nets to hang in my garage

What about using old tights? obviously you may have to shorten the legs a bit or they might drag on the ground! but it would save the expense of buying purpose made nets. Hi Susie you may not believe me but tights popped into my mind the other day and I had completely forgotten about them! Great id...
