Re: Tidying up with ...

ina you aren't the only one who does keep or has kept things like that. But we only have 2 weeks to clear out this social housing bungalow if I leave for a home or am deceased. As all my family work and many live the distance away, I try to keep on top of the clutter. I'd not like the full Marie Kon...

Re: Tidying up with ...

Yeah and some of us have been left with stuff that should really have been put in a skip as no one using a double bed can use another 20 sides to middle single sheets and worn thin ones which are always going to be more than enough cleaning rags for a couple of lifetimes in a small flat - even doing...

Tidying up with ...

Have we all met the Marie Kondo tidying up phenomenon? She has this advice that if it doesn't give you joy then you should not keep it in your tidy house. I suppose that it helps with hoarders but .... But where does this leave the reduce, reuse and recycle idea? How many people complete the tidy up...

Re: F1 or open pollinated?

I'm old but gave up being a wife a long time ago :mrgreen: :wink:

Have just looked at the RHS which says that parsnip canker can be caused by various things but also says to protect from carrot fly.

Re: F1 or open pollinated?

Canker is, I've been told, the result of the carrot fly that attacks - well carrot fly. So it may not been the seeds but the creatures.

Re: Our new world diet?

Ah but some people get grants to study and come up with reports like this. They aren't the ones who have to make use of land that won't support crop growing but will support sheep or cattle or similar stock elsewhere in the world. Perhaps they should now be be sent out to put a growing plan in place...

Yeah funny you should say that; the winter digging is done except where we are still clearing the last bits. No sweat.

No idea how I did it but if I did I would have avoided it. :lol:

Re: What are you growing right now?

Nuffink being grown at the moment as I'm told that gardening on a cracked fibula in the right leg is not to be done. There is still stuff to pick on the allotment mind if I can find a good minion. Last weekend I did and things like parsnips, sprouts, turnip went home.

Re: Heat a greenhouse (environmentally friendly please)

You're thinking of the old Victorian glass houses where these was a regular supply of very fresh manure from mainly horses but other stock such as cattle ina. However it's possible to use the system if you have access to the right ingredients for the beds - https://www.gardenorganic.org.uk/faqs/hot-...

Re: Unseasonal weather

Yep and it's not particularly wet over here in the scheme of a full winter. They'll be saying hose pipe bans if the weather doesn't get its act together and behave like winter.

Re: Slug pellet ban

Slug control is a heated subject. There are nearly as many ways advertised to control slugs as there are varieties of slugs. Cheap beer appeals to a lot of people on the basis of price, easy to obtain, no queries as to how much you buy and not likely to be banned. :roll:
