Re: chest freezer

How about this - I found it when I was looking how to make a root cellar.

Re: PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE

Sorry, forgot to mention that the cost of a course will provide you with an awful lot of seeds - probably enough to feed you for years. The alternative of buying, or begging from gardening folk, will cost a couple of quid. And no course is going to teach you what to put where in your garden better t...

Re: PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE

Seed packets usually come with some sort of instructions. Just remember that the whole purpose of a seed is to grow and produce a plant - so as long as you follow the instructions reasonably well you should get some return for your effort. They require food (manure, seaweed or fertiliser :shock: ) w...

Re: Deliveries - aaargh

Great news
Had an email from rotary dryer man. He's absorbing the extra cost because he agreed the extra costs weren't obvious!
Restores faith a little.

Bl**dy h&ll, LBR. Bit expensive. They'd work out at about £5 a 1lb loaf.

Re: Teff recipe experiments

Sounds good LBR
I like to cut down on wheat.

Don't know about others on here but I've never seen teff for sale, even in healthfood shops. Maybe it's not got over here much yet.

Re: I think this is a sign....

Shame about the box scheme. I'm not totally sure it's always a fad - if times are tight sometimes principles have to go out of the window. I know I've had times when I've had to resort to cheap supermarket veg. Straight back to the organics when the money's allowed. Great news about the allotment th...

A brilliant idea - which you may already know.

I've just heard a brilliant idea from my neighbour which is completely new to me. Of course many of you may already have thought of this one. When removing the side shoots from their tomato plants they stuck some of them in pots. These are far behind the original plants so now, when the big plants a...

Re: take your Canvas Bags to the supermarket

I'm having trouble watching this John.
Can you post the link - my broadband speed is slower than the average tortoise so I may be better at source.

Have you seen this?

I don't use carrier bags wherever possible and I've been buying jute bags to give out in the shop for my products. Having seen this I'm going to have a go at making morsbags, which I can customise for my shop.
I think they're great

Re: Animal Affiliation

I'm a cat too. Bone-idle, generally, with bursts of hyperactivity. Like being warm, cuddled and fed well. Basically a fat cat (without the pecuniary advantages).
