I bought three sorts of strawberries this year, Honeoye, Alice and Cupid for strawberries over a long period of time. They are now all flowering and setting fruit now, what has gone wrong? is it because I have them in the polytunnel, I have only ever grown early strawberries but I thought I would ge...

Re: Water kefir grains - want some?

I make milk kefir and it grows like mad and I have to keep finding people to give it to our feed the surplus yogs to the dogs.

Re: How many hours a day does it take?

I have 3 acres of land, around 50 different fowl, 1 pet pig, 2 alpaca's and two dogs. On the land is two polytunnels and various raised beds. I feed the animals in the morning and evening, so that could be done to fit in around work hours. I reckon that I probably spend two hours a day tending my ga...

Re: This year's gluts and failures
