Hello Gemiki and welcome :flower:
Not a good year at all for growing. By some accounts the worse in living memory so hopefully it can only get better for you.

Re: Now this is strange!

Lots of biting insects causing bigger than usual swellings for us this year. In recent years I've developed a food allergy and experienced horribly painful reactions, similar to those you describe. After eating oysters my immune system launched into hyper-drive and attacked part of my own body. Each...

Anyway, I made 25 gallons of the stuff a couple of years ago which was put into 2 litre PET bottles. The first five gallon batch was bottled at the recommended time but wit...

Tiny baby spuds. What do you do with them?

Re: Do you sit up late on the interweb?

Other way round here. I still surf in the middle of the night but on the occasions I can't sleep I'm up early (02.00 onwards).
