Re: Empty supermarket recipes

The Coop had Tunnock's Caramel wafers tonight!!! I almost bought some - but I don't really like them... It's weird what stuff they have and what they don't. At the moment, an extra display of Walker's shortbread etc - and they don't usually sell that. Plus, as far as I know Walker's had stopped prod...

Re: Experimentalish

Wow - that's all I can say!

How long did your perennial broccoli last for? I have 2 plants in one of my raised beds for the first time.

Re: Self Isolation

:hugish: Difficult for those who are used to contact. I'm not. So in a way I'm better prepared for isolation - doesn't mean that I'm not seriously depressed at the moment.

Re: Self Isolation

:mrgreen: I know. I admire all those who are going through lockdown cooped up with a number of people - for me, even the best friends would drive me bonkers after a little while! So glad I'm on my own... (In a way. In other ways I'm not. :? )

Re: Self Isolation

Oh, I'd say driving to get food is essential - otherwise they wouldn't allow those places to be open! I think in any country there are things that weren't really thought through, as to what is allowed to stay open and what isn't. In Germany, there is just a discussion on the re-opening of GP practic...

Re: Self Isolation

Congratulations on the delivery slot - I know of several people who still haven't got one... I'd quite like to go for a shop at Lidl's, but that would involve taking the bus. Not sure whether that would be acceptable. I can survive on what I can buy locally - but their range is somewhat limited - no...

Re: Self Isolation

Thanks for asking - I'm ok. Officially furloughed now. Not feeling that great, but I think it's a mixture of my ongoing thyroid problem (feeling a bit weak and wobbly, with high blood pressure and palpitations), and the mental stress of just everything. Could be worse. How are you? Are you getting s...

Re: Ivy in compost

Wow - comprehensive answers! Thank you very much. I shall pass all this on. Yes, my friend (colleague) is off work at the moment - might be doing some stuff from home, but not full time - but she also has two small children to look after. But it might be a good time to at least make a start on this....

Ivy in compost

A friend of mine moved into a house last year, and they inherited a compost heap that's totally overgrown/infested with ivy. Any ideas how to get rid of it? Ivy can be great, in the right place, but I suppose one wouldn't want it all over the garden...

Re: Emptying the supermarket shelves

They might still have to stop for sleeping even when double manned - but they could then drive for 16 hours per day (each driver 8 hours), and still have enough time for proper sleep in a motel. I don't know how it works, can't find the article where I first read about it now...
