Re: Free food

Should have said that the bread looks lovely. Well done.

Re: Free food

Being Coeliac, I won’t be growing wheat anytime soon but I could be tempted to try oats given that gluten free oats are ten times the price of the gluten infested ones. I’d be interested to hear how anyone else gets on.

Re: Winter storms

Well something blew down one of the poplars in the school field behind my house. Squashed one of my greenhouses and took out three fence panels. Given that the trees are over 80ft high we got off very lightly with so little damage. School has already offered to replace the greenhouse and the fence.

Re: Does anyone know.....

The answer to that one is try it and see. I start mine off on a windowsill early in the season so it could be possible.

Re: Men plucking their eyebrows!

As someone who did fall into the trap of plucking my eyebrows when I was younger, I can say that one of the advantages is that the hair stops growing after a while. I rarely need to do mine now as the ones I used to pluck don’t tend to grow anymore.

Achocha tea

I have some fat babies growing again this year. I’ve read that the seeds can be brewed into a tea which is good for a number of ailments from blood pressure to digestional disorders. Does anyone know how to make the tea? So far I’ve just thrown the seeds in a mug and poured just boiled water on them...

Re: Men plucking their eyebrows!

If it helps him to feel good about himself then why not? Especially if he’s got very prominent eyebrows. But it’d be a shame if he became obsessed with them or overdid it.

When I was looking for my last house I specified that I wanted a 3 bed house with a garden. I got sent details of one bed flats with no outside space :?

Re: Mattresses

I’ve had three or four second hand mattresses over the years. The ones on both my bed and the single are second hand. I do run the Vax over them when I get them but I always have a blanket and then a sheet between me and the mattress so I’m not going to catch anything.

Re: Hot weather and water

I need more butts! Mine are almost empty now. Even the cruddy one at the back of the shed that’s always the last to be used as I have to fight my way through the honeysuckle to get to it.

Re: The new banish plastic movements

I guess the important thing is that the rollercoaster has started. We may only just be pulling away from the station, but the movement will gain momentum and improvements will happen. So, shall we share tips and hints? I have been known to remove wasteful packaging at the shop and hand it back to th...

Re: Vertical gardening

MKG don’t lose heart and turn the garden into lawn. There must be another way. Is there any possibility of swapping spare fruit for vegetables? That way you could plant more tall fruits but still get vegetables. Also, what about raised planting outside? Search on Pinterest for pallet planters for sa...

Re: Sales

I did succumb. I’d been thinking about a new vacuum cleaner for months (I don’t rush into these things). AO were offering the one I wanted at a whopping 80 quid off. Funny how all the other websites were advertising it at normal price at only 10 more than AO we’re selling it for. Just shows how over...
