Re: How long do celery and salsify take to germinate?

My first pack of seeds did nothing and the second pack I put in only have about 60% germination, yet I never usually have any pro...

Re: 101 professions for a self-sufficientish, thinking perso

I've recently packed up work and now spend most of my time rescuing our new place from being unlived in for a few years as well as doing the "ish" stuff and trying to think of something I can do from home. :scratch: After years working in print packaging (which he hated :banghead: :banghead: ) OH no...
