Re: The new banish plastic movements

I am interested in your solar degradable farm sacks, is that oxo degradable. I have those as salad bags, but I was very disappointed when I found out they are oxo degradable so useless for a compost heap. Iceland the frozen food shop have now started to remove plastic from their own brand foods, the...

Re: The new banish plastic movements

I still think the Swedish model is the way forward, they are incinerating plastics to provide heating for homes, some plastics are hard to recycle or they are not recycled at all so go to landfill, we use virgin oil in power stations, in my view, that plastic that is being burnt has just had a previ...

Re: The new banish plastic movements

Plastic is the bane of my life, no matter how much you try to reject it, it comes into your home. I saw a a plastic free page I am on that Lidl have agreed in Sligo to accept any plastic wrapping from your shopping that you don't want. I was in the butcher and got all my sausages, bacon and chicken ...

Re: Storm Dylan?

Don't remember the famous storm of 1987 being named by Micheal Fish, I think this is a new thing.

Re: Storm Dylan?

Well we have entered the Hurricane season now, traditionally January is a very windy month, but we seem to have had hurricanes most of the year, does this mean they might have to employ someone as official storm namer, could become a full time occupation. I don't know about bus problems as we don't ...

Put on hot music and the seeds will come up rocking and keep themselves warm (yes, I've had a glass of wine).

Re: Gardening Indoors

Well spotted OS, it is a Valor heater, but it is for show only, the insides of it were rusted, a neighbour gave it to me years ago and we had it blasted and the Wizard has recently painted it for me, I stand plants on it. I may even go with a tomato plant, you never know, but there is not heating in...

Gardening Indoors

Now we have this new space, it seems a shame not to use it for something useful, and I have failed this year to grow enough leaves in the tunnels to keep us supplied. Hopefully this will work out ok will post progress as it does...

Re: New potatoes for dinner

I must go and search for those potatoes I saw growing a few weeks ago, before a frost. I have also been growing flower sprouts as an alternative to sprouts and they are just like tiny little cabbages, my sprouts always seems to explode anyway so may as well cut out the middle man

Re: Spring?

In spite of the continuing wet weather and everyone pludging round in 10 feet of mud, my climbing rose bush is full of buds and they seem to be coming out over the last few days and the sweet peas intertwining the rose bush is starting to grow and make buds, just very odd a bit like last December wh...
