Re: River Cottage - Hemp

You can now get hemp milk... great huh, full of Omega 3. Anyone tried it? I have, they were handing out free samples in Waitrose a couple of weeks ago. I personally didn't like it, but it's a bit like soy milk with the addition of the 'green' flavour of hemp oil, so if you like that flavour then yo...

Vegetable Explorers

I am a lurker these days :shock: but I know from experience that you guys are all into unusual edibles and very knowledgeable on the subject. I am working on a new book project which is all about people who grow unusual edibles. I would like to include profiles of several growers (some famous, some ...

Re: River Cottage - Hemp

For anyone with land - who might be interested in growing Hemp, I found this site http://www.businesslink.gov.uk/bdotg/action/detail?type=RESOURCES&itemId=1082224347 (It's a government run site) - It offers guidance and how you apply to get a license. (UK) I was interested in growing hemp on a smal...

Plantscafe website

I stumbled across the Plantscafe website this morning and thought it might be a good resource for home schoolers. It's aimed at 9-11 year olds and it's all about plants. There are 44 modules, all with downloadable teaching material and printable worksheets (I've only had a look at a couple), a few o...

Hi guys, I have white mushrooms growing in my raised beds. I did add some mushroom compost to them a couple of years ago (although they're in two beds and I don't remember whether I added the compost to both). It's also possible that I chucked the remains of one of those home mushroom kits on there ...

We use shredded paper in the nest box for our chooks. I aim to change it weekly; sometimes we have to change it more often if they poo in the nestbox, but generally they don't. It doesn't get wet though.

We've had an eglu and two chickens since the spring time and we love it (and them). It makes chicken keeping a doddle. We both work full time and are struggling with plenty of DIY projects already. Another advantage of the eglu (and I'm not trying to sell them here) is that its very easy to convince...

Cordials

Hi, Does anyone ever make cordials/ fruit squashes? Hubby and I are thinking of growing soft fruit on our allotment, but if we get a glut of berries then jam isn't something we would want much of. However, we do drink a lot of fruit squash (non-alcoholic). I assume it's a process similar to making j...

I tried it with comfrey last year, and for several days I thought the wind had changed and was coming straight from the local sewage farm. Then I worked out what the stench was! I don't think any of the neighbours worked it out though, because they didn't come round to complain.
