Re: Using CDs in the garden - problems?

ok... well hang them up somewhere they can't damage anything... let them go clear and then move them back to the veg plot, lol... or do they need the reflective bit to scare the birds?

Then again, when they moved in, the bathroom was full of strange plants....my grandpa asked a neighbour what the hell they were, and why they were ...

Re: a year without a shop

I'll have to have a look out for this one... wonder if my library might have it... An online friend of mine lived a year without money tho this sounds a bit different in that she's grown everything where as he foraged alot and used some waste he found in skips and stuff.
