Re: CHEAP EDGING MATERIALS FOR RAISED BEDS?

Try freecycle for any freebie wood a la the types mentioned before. An alternative option is weaving willow withies, put stakes in ground at frequent intervals and bend the withies back and forth. You can make them to any shape, height or size you want, and if you grow a couple of willow trees you c...

Re: starving children

There are elements of truth in most of these. In countries with high infant mortality rates and no social welfare (pensions etc) there's little option but having many children to ensure you'll be looked after when no longer able to be productive in your own right. Life expectancies increase in these...

Aphrodites Flan

I found this recipe on the net ages ago - can't remember source. Thought I'd post it here because it's really tasty, easy to make and really easy to make a vegan version. In fact I make both at the same time (I'm happy to use vegan marg and soya milk to make the pastry) so my daughter's happy and so...

3 steps forward, 2 steps back

Have a look at this. At first sight, good thing?

But
More plastic
Another thing to get nicked/lost
Damaging the paper/forestry industry/jobs
Won't light my boiler!

Re: Something special for Yule

Her vegan tiramisu is lurvely.

I'm not sure I'd compost the co...
