Gotta loada onions?

Well, you look in the fridge, there's a few veg but mainly ONIONS. What to do? Well, here's something really tasty I tried the other night. You can serve these babies with anything and even eat them cold. Yeah ~ there were a few left in the pan, late at night, just lookin' at me. They just had to go...

Yeah Hurrrah for old people! (like me) :lol:

You are right Sunpuppy, anything that gets through to anyone is GOOD.

I have a four year old who is pretty aware of recycling and not wasting things. I can't throw anything away without him finding a use for it!

The idea of a coupla chooks is looking so tempting, even with my small back garden. I have eaten Tracey's (downshifting week lady)hens eggs and they are the best thing ever. They eat all the kitchen scraps/compostie stuff, scratch around in a large coup and are very happy hens. I even had a double y...

We used to have Gerbs once. God, they were noisy little critters at night. Rattle, rattle, rattle! Great fun tho. A good way of finding free furniture is to find out when your local council does large item collections. (I know this from working briefly for a refuse company) Then you can go cruising ...

Does the gerbil lay eggs or just has a papier mache factory of it's own going? :lol: Forgot to say...water the pva down 50/50 makes it go further. Get some from Wilkos or a kids shop, it's cheaper, Woolies or such like. You could just cover a piece of old furniture that needs a little love, like an ...

Hi Andy, You can make some great 'creations' with egg boxes soaked until mushy and add pva. (I know some people don't like using it, but I do!) Mold the mushy egg boxes over a nice bowl or shape that takes yer fancy. Don't forget to put some vaseline or similar over the item you are covering so that...

Grrrr my broadband modem is having a funny five minutes too. Everytime I boot up the pc, it needs the plug pulling from the back of it and then putting back in, the wire wiggling and hey presto it's friendly again! Have you got a problem with something overheating somewhere in that box of tricks may...

I had a little spark of inspiration and thought of advertising something in my local postoffice to ask if anyone has a large garden with a spare bit 'going' for me to grow stuff on. Of course, they would get a few veg in return!

Whaddya reckon?

Thanks Andy, I'd like to meet up as we aren't a million miles away. BTW I checked out about allotments in our area today. Guess wot? 4 year waiting list! :shock: :shock: :shock: I then suggested to the council that they should think about finding more overgrown land that they own to provide people w...

True, but at least you can tart it up a bit. I quite like it with butter, salt and pepper!

Sort of, but kids don't like marrows! Mine 'll eat courgettes till the cows come home. (I wish I had some cows)

I have tried marrow with them and you should see their faces. :cry:

They do eat everything else tho, so I can't really complain.

Would you believe that the birds don't eat mine? I know they aren't poisonous cos I've been eating them for the last four years. :shock:
