Re: Silly Season Self Sufficiency

No TV here either, and no papers... I think I'll be missing Christmas altogether this year - I've spent most of the past 6 weeks in bed, being horribly weak, and since it doesn't look like I'm getting better (and the appointment with the specialist is in February) it looks like I'll be away from all...

Re: No plastic

You don't need to use horrible Amazon for those toothbrushes - I've bought several in various shops.

Re: What are you growing right now?

Onions, onions, onions... Well, they are not growing any more, but they haven't been harvested yet. Courgette and patty pan are still going - I have a few runner beans that are not looking too happy with the weather... Shame. Radishes. Brambles. In a fit of optimism I've sown a few seeds under cover...

Re: New Person Saying Hello

Hi Ascerti - welcome to Ish. Dreaming is a good place to start - and it doesn't end; I'm rather older than you and still dreaming. Is there maybe a way you could start coming closer to your dreams in a very little way - I'm thinking of container gardening or such like? That was always my minimum if ...

Also of note, I finally have a pineapple with roots.
That's something I did on purpose, and have tried before and failed.

Re: Honebody day

Yeah, birds got most of my (very few) cherries, too. But I left the red currant uncovered this year for the birds - I can't use them all anyway.

Re: How to grow an Avocado tree

I've had a few on the compost heap, too! But then, lacking a poly tunnel (or sufficient sunshine), it never came to much.
