Re: UK ban on new diesel and petrol cars 2040

Yeah, I'm pretty much the same as GA with Cork city a 200 mile round trip. At the moment there are a handful of charging points, but none of them at shopping centres :dontknow: Then there's the trip to the UK. It's about 300 miles from here to the ferry and then another 325 miles to the in-laws hous...

Re: Need a change of lifestyle

A listener phoned in the Jeremy Vine show last week and was under the impression we would not be able to fly over Europe when we left the EU. Shows the level of misinformation that there is around. Not necessarily "misinformation", just not bandied about in the UK media for some reason. I...

Re: Need a change of lifestyle

Will you get chucked out if it all gets handled as badly as it appears likely? Do you mean me personally or the country? Personally, we moved here when you still had to get official permission to buy a house here, so they probably couldn't chuck me out. But if there were to be serious mutterings ab...

Re: change car speakers

You need to check the power handling of your new speakers (in Watts) and the impedance (in Ohms) Most speakers nowadays are between 4 and 16 Ohms impedance, so not really a worry and the physical size of the speaker will give you an idea about power handling if it's not marked, i.e., the bigger the ...

Re: Need a change of lifestyle

Am I doing something wrong? Nope. I'm the same, I spend all winter planning what I'm going to grow, then spend all spring sowing and weeding, then spend all summer planning what I'm going to grow next year and then spend all autumn harvesting, drying, bottling and preserving. So if you're doing som...

Re: Growing Fruit from pips (Formerly all about Lemons)

I have an ant problem just about everywhere too. If your ants are like mine they are probably eating the pollen, hence no fruit. A simple and old fashioned cure for that would be to put a grease band on the trunk. That simply stops them climbing up to get to the flowers. Any waterproof grease libera...

Re: Funny old weather

As I suspected, no real rain just a drizzly day with probably less than 1/2 inch all told.
I look forward to Timmo's visit Weedo, as long as it's not during our winter (when it rains every day non-stop)

Re: Funny old weather

I wish it would rain here, REAL rain that is. They keep forecasting rain but all we get is about ten minutes of light drizzle and that's it. Just enough to make all the weeds grow. Our spring dried up about a month ago and both my rain water tanks are empty. Thank goodness for the deep borehole well...

Re: Someone say something

Am seriously considering whether to hand in the allotments at the end of the season I know the feeling well, Flo. If it wasn't the case that I have far too much invested in my fruit and veg production I might well think the same. But I have 2 polytunnels, 3 greenhouses and ordinary veg plots, and I...

Re: tomato varietys less prone to blossom rot

As it happens I can name 2 varieties that are less prone to blossom end rot, although I suppose it should be "I can name a variety that is MORE prone to blossom end rot". Make up your own mind on that. I am growing 4 tomato plants in a self watering pod and a month os so ago the ball valve...

Re: Funny old weather

It has p****d down here for two days straight. Apparently it's been 11C colder here than all points south. I know, I've been watching that on the weather maps. It's been getting steadily warmer here with today's forecast reaching 26 degrees, and that forecast also has RAIN on Friday, but with a max...
