I assume all of those are for fresh turmeric.
I've actually never had fresh turmeric, only dried.

Re: Self sufficientish 2020

I'd always meant to come back up to your area - had a very short trip quite a few years ago... But as soon as I heard what's happening with NC500, I'm thinking no thanks.

Re: Selff sufficientish 2020

At least your bus does meet the train - here they don't know about coordinating public transport! I fully understand about the tourism, though. Even Stonehaven can get a bit annoying... And very few shops that cater for "normal" people. And these days, when I need the doctor more often than I'd like...

Re: Karen and Pete's allotment

Looks good! The allotments I've seen around here were a lot more expensive, though - all private. Not worth it if you are trying to save money, unless you have a very large family.

Re: Recycling hoarded fabrics

My daughter converts old sheets etc. to clothes for the kids - with queen sized sheets there is a lot of unworn fabric around the central worn out bit.

Re: What are you harvesting now?

Isn't it amazing how sheep/lambs/goats always find a way? At least they haven't started digging yet...

I've still got a bit of parsley and celeriac leaf in the garden. If I remember to pick it when it's day light.

Re: Recycling hoarded fabrics

Dare I say it - I never watched Sound of Music? But I read the original book (or books, I think it was 2). Would love to read them again, but I think they went for recycling like so much other stuff when they cleared my parents house. :( But: I used to buy sample squares of furnishing material and m...

Re: Cold Frame from Junk

Excellent!
