Re: recycled Materials to make raised beds

I scrounged some old floorboard offcuts from a house renovation, and pinned them down with U shaped loops from a car dog-guard

Re: What can you see from your window?

sunday morning early there was a Roe deer browsing on the railway embankment behind the house, I didn't dare move as I was just outside the back door and he was only about five yards from me :flower:

Re: anyone got a simple pattern for slippers?

crochet slips are proper easy (for when you've done your crochet class) I just made one starting with a chain half the length of my foot and going round and round it (increasing at the end 'corners' and then decreasing the corners when the piece reached 'sole' size) but am rubbish at writing the ins...

Re: Dehydrating fruit and making fruit leather.

intend doing more of these when the wild plums come in again, but a dehydrator would probably be useful. Last year they were just put in the top oven when the main oven was in use. I think adding apples and wild strawbs to the mix might add something too I just wrapped mine in cling film and they st...

Re: Planting a hedge

I'd go for the mix with crab apples and plums, but avoid dogwood, it looks pretty but does smell like dog poo when you cut it. Hawthorn :salute: Hazel for da nuts rosemary ? birds seem to love mine mine's mostly a leftovers tray of poor (50p the tray) dried shrubs(which did well with tlc), a Maple g...

Re: Using T bags to carry your shopping home.

Now that's a really brill idea to use old printed teeshirts that I've *ahem* 'grown out of' or 'shrunk in the wash ' as I call it :cheers: I reckon if you have the facility and the sewing machine, overstitching the neck and arm holes with an overlock type stitch would make it stronger too. other use...

Re: Milk intolerance?

I will now try to compose a less frantic message - sorry things were boiling over I went to the GP with various similar problems, (ok I am old but bear with me) he suggested it could be lactose but said tests are time consuming and not always conclusive. I did my own test and gave up all milk produc...

Re: dismayed at a t3$c0 free range chicken

Can't advise on that MrsF - I believe all 'farm assured' tells you it's a british farm reared bird. I buy from my local butcher who buys locally wherever possible. Chickens in supermarkets should have a code which annotates the farm they were reared on, so if you find a good one it would be an idea ...

Re: dismayed at a t3$c0 free range chicken

t'dragon says - hock burns could be caused by bad management, and often means the chicken has been raised in an area where it was sqatting in poo/urine because it was raised to put on too much weight too quickly - this would acccount for the bad joints too. The burn effect to the breast could be ele...
