Re: making a bit of dosh for christmas!

As said I am not in the UK, I am not selling food either, sorry I caused any fuss. After some thought I realised that I do actually have a food handling certificate from a previous job. It took about 2 hours and a very easy test to get it so if I have worried anyone please stop now! Local councils a...

Re: Pickled onion marmalade, it's cheep and quik, grate for

You had to keep checking it like when making jam because different onions have varying amounts of water. Especially at this time of year. Sounds like it was overcooked. I got my Balsamic from Aldi it was E1.25 they have three different kinds but I don't know if they sell it in France so cheaply.Perh...

Re: making a bit of dosh for christmas!

I don't think it is a problem with the regulations here as I am not, strictly speaking selling any food. Taking your comment to its logical conclusion you could not even make a cake or have people round for lunch or a childrens birthday party. What about the pop up restaurants we have been hearing a...

making a bit of dosh for christmas!

When we came to Slovenia to live our income dropped by 75% Yes it was very scary indeed I thought MOM would never forgive me. Anyway we were pretty desperate and I even ended up making my bosses packed lunch every day. As I grew a lot of my own stuff and he went to a boarding school and so would eat...

Re: A new documentary of 10 ecovillages in Europe

Hi, I wonder where we can see the full documentary? I am a teacher of Environmental Studies in an International School in Slovenia so it would a great resource for me to use in class. I also plan to open an eco campsite (ONE DAY) so I am sure I could get some more inspiration and ideas from there to...

Re: butternuts

Thats the theory about the temp and we have been up to 39 degrees this summer but down to 19 too. Now averaging 25 with plenty of rain so I am really hopeful. I just think I got them in a bit late.We are quite far south though so the days are not as long as the UK. I actually have two plots, one hal...

Re: butternuts

Hi I have a few tiny fruits on my plants but is there still enough time for them to grow to a decent size and ripen? roughly hoe long does it take? they are obviously slower than my exploding courgettes which turn into marrows if I turn my back to get a cup of tea!

Re: wooden toys

Hi there is quite a good market in wooden blanks like egg cups, napkin rings, wooden eggs etc. people paint them, do woodburning or even carve them. These would sell as long as your friend can make them cheaply enough.
