Re: attaching a photo?

I go into full editor and then select attachments and then add files, but I would be interested in any other way of doing this too as I am not sure I do it righ

Re: Newbie here :)

Hiya Bubble. I live in Southern Ireland, up near the border with Enniskillen. This is one of the poorest counties in the country and the least populated. I know lots of people living in caravans, off grid cottages, etc, it seems to attact people that want to live a slightly different lifestyle. Most...

Re: Flavour of supermarket veg

why does a salad always have to come with tomatoes no matter how awful they taste. With so much amazing root veg available, there is no need for this at all. I can't grow tomatoes in winter, but I can dehydrate mine and store for the winter in oil, they have so much more flavour this way. Lack of im...

Re: The new banish plastic movements

Whatever happened to loo paper from recycled materials? That's disappeared from shelves. I still manage to find that, but it still has a plastic wrapper. Just bought a box of toilet rolls from 'Who Give a Crap', non chlorine bleached, recycled paper and 50 per cent of the profits are donated to pro...

Re: Composty questions

I bought my organic feed in paper sacks and originally, they were in waxed paper sacks, so all good. A couple of years ago, I started noticing that where I had opened sacks out and put them on the garden and covered with mulch, I was being left with this really wafer thin layer of plastic, so once a...

Re: The new banish plastic movements

I don't get the whole straw thing, as kids we drank the stuff unaided and I certainly didn't start that with mine.

I bought some toilet paper from Who Gives a Crap, no plastic film, forest friendly paper and they put 50 percent of the profits into improving toilet hygiene in the developing world

Re: The new banish plastic movements

I am interested in your solar degradable farm sacks, is that oxo degradable. I have those as salad bags, but I was very disappointed when I found out they are oxo degradable so useless for a compost heap. Iceland the frozen food shop have now started to remove plastic from their own brand foods, the...

Re: The new banish plastic movements

I still think the Swedish model is the way forward, they are incinerating plastics to provide heating for homes, some plastics are hard to recycle or they are not recycled at all so go to landfill, we use virgin oil in power stations, in my view, that plastic that is being burnt has just had a previ...

Re: The new banish plastic movements

Plastic is the bane of my life, no matter how much you try to reject it, it comes into your home. I saw a a plastic free page I am on that Lidl have agreed in Sligo to accept any plastic wrapping from your shopping that you don't want. I was in the butcher and got all my sausages, bacon and chicken ...

Don't remember the famous storm of 1987 being named by Micheal Fish, I think this is a new thing.
