Re: Where is everyone?New post section perhaps?

Sorry, have been sadly absent. Got lured into taking a permanent job which just takes up too much of my time. But without the job I can't afford to keep the garden so work it is.

Re: A 110 million lottery win

I know exactly what I'd do. I'd set up a not for profit business buying up empty, unloved properties. The sort that are too difficult or expensive for a commercial organisation to repair. Then renovate them and either sell or rent. The aim would be to cover costs. Without the need to recompense shar...

Re: Food allergies

I don't know yet what's causing it but I do know that I've had a few anaphylactic attacks. Not serious enough to warrant hospital but still pretty scary.

Food allergies

Hi
Does anyone suffer from food allergies? I've been diagnosed and am now trying to determine which foods I'm allergic to. Keeping a food diary at the moment but would appreciate any words of wisdom anyone can share.

Re: Lovely surprise

With kids like that, you should give parenting classes. You've obviously done something right. :icon_smile: Do have a fabulous time.

Re: New year . New craft room.

Lol - love the idea of a new craft room. Last year I just gave up and moved myself into the small single bedroom so that I could use my large main bedroom as a craft room. Much more practical than wasting all that space on just sleeping!

I can't wait for the piccy of the lampshade.

Re: Want the dream!!!

Hi Tree :wave: Don't be put off. But it's great advice to start small. What can you afford/have time to do now? There's loads of ideas on this site about where to start, small things you can do to get going, stuff to grow in pots. No point buying a huge plot of land if you don't know how to grow cre...

Re: How do we feel about artificial meat?

I mentioned that the radio report I had heard said that it was a more efficient way of producing meat but it didn't really say how it was more efficient. Has there been any details of how this meat is grown? They are animal cells after all so what provides them with the energy to grow or is it just...

Re: Need some advice ie, wood burner

Do you need to take out the Aga? They can sometimes be converted to solid fuel.

Re: What are you havesting

My first fig!

sda - why not try one stalk? It it's too tough or a bit bitter don't bother with any more. Mine's in quite a shady spot so it goes on quite late.

Re: @*!%@*** Royal Mail

Sadly neither was tracked. One was a present that I'd made and the other was a hand made birthday card. I've learned my lesson now. Presents will be sent with tracking in future. It costs a bit more but worth it.

Re: Can you recommend a good climber

Oooo - reading this with interest. I also have an ugly wall. It's not mine so I have to be a bit careful what I put up it. It faces south but is heavily shaded by overhanging trees so is also quite dark. I was looking for something self-clinging as I can't really drill into it for trellis or support...

Re: How do we feel about artificial meat?

I watched an interview about this with the scientist who is developing the process. He admitted that animals will still be required and they will still be slaughtered in order to obtain the initial stem cells. Vegetarians need to beware that the 'meat' isn't as cruelty free as the media is making ou...
