Re: Ophelia

Well, I hope it gets no worse for you. It's been incredibly quiet here today, no wind and just a little rain but since about 3pm the sky has been a very strange colour. I don't think we'll be getting much of Ophelia, all reports say it will either blow itself out or miss us, passing further south. T...

Re: Ophelia

Keep safe, Tony.

OH keeps insisting it will be blown out before reaching us but I noticed him sliding into the polytunnel with a screwdriver and monkey wrench, to tighten up the joints.

Hold onto your hats folks.

Re: Ophelia

Damn it. We've had nothing but high winds and rain for the last 7-10 days! The joiners haven't been able to finish the roof and we've had a drip through the living room ceiling where the rain is getting (following a screw apparently) since they built the frame (which is making some awful groaning no...

Re: Improving being self sufficientish

I find that truly terrifying, Weedo. I rather hoped younger generations were more clued up than mine.

Dunno. Maybe they'll refrigerate it. They have ski slopes in Dubai. :dontknow:

Sound to me like you're a lot more Ish than most folks, Helen, and you'll certainly be busy enough with 3 kids.

Re: Improving being self sufficientish

One thing I found interesting (I looked it up again the other day, after I posted this) was that because they were pretty much on starvation rations their bodies learned quite quickly to utilise what they were eating, so even though technically undernourished (possibly better description than malnou...

Re: It's been a while

Hi Helen, lovely to see you. Still struggling along here. Self-sufficientish in this house changes depending on what is needed. We've been doing a lot of renovating that had been on hold for a few years, so gardening etc has had to take a distinctly back seat (maybe that should be distantly!). I'm s...

Re: This self sufficient thing?

Yup, pretty much what he said. Although we've lived this way for much longer (and dreamed of it for even longer than that!) I recently read something that said most folk are only 2-3 pay packets away from needing to use foodbanks, which I found really frightening. Well we're not, mainly due to my sl...

Re: No more F1 here (probably)

Have a look at Bakers Creek seeds, Tony. They're in the US so postage might be a bit steep but they seem to have ten or more varieties (I only had a very quick look) - all heirloom.

I keep meaning to put an order in with them myself - they do short season varieties of all sorts veg.
