Re: Household chemicals

Seriously back ache is often using the wrong tools and sitting in the wrong position. .... or falling off a ladder a couple of years ago. Actually it's not that bad, I just have to stop and sit down when it tells me to. It's a bit like when I was younger, I used to stop regularly for a "fag br...

Re: Household chemicals

Are you killing of all the natural bacteria on your body Err no, I grew up in the era when you had a bath every Saturday night whether you needed one or not, and that's what I still do. If I do a lot of sweaty work during summer I might have a shower when I finish, but I'm pretty sure I didn't even...

Re: It's that time of year again ...

Yes I saw that, John reposted it on Facebook, although I didn't realise they all came from one parent. I think I have my squash variety solved now, roasted Black Forest squash is almost identical to roasted chestnuts, far more so than the Pottimaron. So provided it keeps until late spring without ro...

Household chemicals

I know that Green Aura will tell me to make my own, but this is an area that I've never been particularly 'Ishy A few years ago I started to get scabs on my scalp, just like many young men of my age :iconbiggrin: It gradually got worse to the stage where I frequently drew blood just by combing my ha...

Re: It's that time of year again ...

Ok, so now I am confused. Odsox is planting toms at the same time as we in Oz will be? Our rule is plant Toms on Melbourne Cup day Sorry to confuse you Weedo but you ought to have realised by now that I have never played by the rules :lol: As for growing tomatoes, it's dead easy. Just find the most...

ALL of my homemade wine has gone into cooking, very useful the reds were for soaking the sliced tomatoes before drying.

Re: It's that time of year again ...

I forgot to say that I'm growing another tomato over winter. There is a plant growing by my daughter's kitchen wall in a crack of the concrete path. It's about 18" tall and a very strong neat bush, one that has branches rather than side shoots. It obviously doesn't need much TLC or water and it...

Re: It's that time of year again ...

OK, some on there way, enough to sow a couple now and plenty for the spring. Thank you but no, neither of us like chillies, as I think I might have mentioned before I don't like food that bites me back. I grew some Paprika plants this year expecting them to be mild, intending to dry them and grind f...

Yes, in fact there have been no cancellations planned at all for Cork airport.
Maybe that's where Mr O'Leary's mum lives.

Re: Improving being self sufficientish

Wonder what visions Tony has of growing in one of the Eden Project geodomes Well, they can keep the Rain Forest dome, far too hot and humid, but the Mediterranean dome on the other hand has great potential. It would be fantastic to build your house in there, you could grow everything you needed for...

Back home now :cheers:

Just looked Flo, at the time I wrote this there are 75 users online, me and 4 search engine crawlers plus 70 "guests".
Any idea how to get those 70 to register and say something ?

Well I'm on my way back home, at least I'm in the right country now.
I'll be home tomorrow with 10 days of catching up to do.
But you're right Flo, not enough posts.

I'm sitting in the cafe at the Eden Project wondering if I can fit one of their geodomes in my garden.
Probably not without covering the next village as well.
Ah well, maybe in my next life I'll be a multimillionaire.
