Re: Breast feeding, socially unacceptable or not?

I'm another chap and just about all the Mum's in our Church breastfeed. I think it should be the norm, anywhere and everywhere. Better for the Baby, better for the Mum and better for the Planet we share with others. :sunny:

Re: how can i use rabbit droppings?

You could put it straight onto the Rhubarb, but I prefer custard myself :lol:
Seriously, though, rabbit poo is safe to put straight onto the garden, but keep it away from young seedlings. Alternatively, just add it the the compost heap.

Re: planning a larder

I love walk-in pantries/larders. We are in an old house, which has been "modernised " before we bought it :pukeright: Not insulated or anything sensible like that, but all the old features taken out :scratch: Now the only place to build a larder is in the old ty bach, the outside toilet; but that is...

Re: Seed supplier recommendations please

We have used both the Organic Gardening and Real seeds. Both are good, but Real Seeds is a small concern and produce some excellent seeds.

Re: Worm Farms vs Composting

Tip; don't buy Tiger worms. They will arrive naturally in a compost heap. Simply harvest some and add to you worm bin. It's all free; very ish. :mrgreen:

Re: solar powered washing machine

Hi, Abs....Fairy.You say you found your washing machine on the tip. Older machines tend to outlive newer models, so it sounds as if you have a gem. What type of machine is it ?
