Re: This board ain't self sufficient

Only the young nettles are tasty - the older ones are unpleasant.

Re: This board ain't self sufficient

What is that word work Weedo? It sounds as if it wants training. Suppose you are self sufficient in work but possibly that's not want you want.

Re: Improving being self sufficientish

Did you ever read the report on the biosphere experiment that was carried in the 90s, in the US? If memory serves they couldn't provide sufficient food and all came out fairly malnourished. I sort of remember hearing that. One wonders if the people involved had any knowledge of growing and nutritio...

Re: Household chemicals

I expect that if you gave up gardening and sitting in a comfy chair in front of the computer you'd cure the back ache Mr Odsox! :lol: Seriously back ache is often using the wrong tools and sitting in the wrong position. I'm not into making my own household chemicals either so Green Aura can lecture ...

Re: Improving being self sufficientish

No doubt the cost of the dome, planning permission and sourcing materials.

You worked out yet if you'll be able to fly Ryan Air to that wedding yet?

There are not enough posters to make it so. Where are you all? :dontknow:

Re: Improving being self sufficientish

Wonder what visions Tony has of growing in one of the Eden Project geodomes. Having been there, one could be self sufficient for a household or two - perhaps you need a tribe to cover the costs? :iconbiggrin:

Re: Improving being self sufficientish

Hope you've sorted the vegetable box Maggie. Maybe they are going to let you have 2 for the price of 1. :iconbiggrin: :mrgreen: :lol:

If I ever get on top of the allotments I'll have to think about decorating the kitchen. I can but don't like doing it.

Re: Improving being self sufficientish

You'll certainly notice the difference Tony. It'll do you the world of good to see how a lot of the world lives. You'll return ready to go back to doing the growing. Not travelling by Ryan Air then?

Re: Improving being self sufficientish

Next week I should be able to live on a tenner (grapes, bread and fees for the social chat club at the most) and whatever is in the food cupboard. Sound self sufficient to me.

Re: Harvest time

You sound as if you have had a similar year to me Mr Tony Odsox. Well except that I put most of the brassicas on the new to me allotment which has club root and the results are not good. In fact, the results could be called failure. But you don't know till you have worked a plot a year. The daughter...

Re: Smartflower?

The equally certified husband used to do the telly end of the broadcast too. You'd not believe the fun we had with the telly licencing van as we didn't have commercial telly like the rest of the world. :mrgreen: Anyway - well off topic. This smartflower has been raised in other places I frequent and...

Re: Improving being self sufficientish

Tis good to know that my elders and betters have disasters too :mrgreen: I left the greenhouse shut one hot spring day (must have been the only one here) and went out for many hours. Roasted tomato plants which recovered as did the peppers but the butternut squash failed. Humf. Anyway over the last ...
