Self sufficientish in 2019

If you know of a way to help save our planet, even just a small part of it put it here. Also if you want to ask how to help, or even if you want to promote your environmental organisation. All goes here.

This year though, Lidl for some inane reason decided that their toilet roll tubes needed glazing on the inside, which made them waterproof and unable to quickly rot.
I haven't noticed that yet - maybe I buy a different sort? I always go for Lidl's cheapest... Or they sell a different kind in Ireland. I've not used them for seedlings this year, but chuck them on the compost anyway.

Just about given up on 2019 in the patch - simply too hot and dry.
Most of the veg and herbs are bolting - probably due to high temps and lack of any real winter. Potatoes are doing well and I have hopes for the toms and capsicums. Anything leafy (apart from Rhubarb) just wilts regardless of how much water they get. On the bright side, the roses are superb this year.

Forecast is for 35 - 40 degrees for the next couple of weeks. Just 252mm (10 inches rainfall) so far this year; around half of average. Evaotraspiration for November was 90mm (3.6 inches) which was almost double the months rainfall
