OH doing a first aid course

I have always kept my first aid certificate up to date through work and did a year and half stint volunteering with St John Ambulance where I learnt bucket loads. However, I have said to my hubby for a while that he ought learn, as what would he do if he found me unconscious one day? Also our eldest...

Re: FLEAS!

Well my hound has got fleas now grrrrr. We, like the rest of you, put the drops on him every month but he seems to have them in spite of that. Not seen them on him yet, but 3 out the 4 of us have tell tale flea bites on our ankles, and I have seen him scratching a good un. Sigh ...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 5.

Re: Winter.

Just added some different clothes to the bag I carry in the boot of my car in prep for the cooler weather, checked I have enough instant hand warmers in there and thought about getting my car serviced in the autumn so it'll be winter ready. I tend to service it before the bad weather hits so it give...

Re: SHTF: What Would You Grow In Your Garden?

I have been looking at micro green https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00784vv and square foot gardening with the looming price rises in mind. We have just made a large raised bed on our patio area about 1 & half meter by 3. We have been digging out soil for a conservatory to go on the back of our hou...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 5.

Sorted out some space in the garage for my "Brexipreps" ( Love that term ukpreppergrrl - you're fab!) And began filling a crate with a few jars of pesto, olives etc and bought a large 3 kg bag of pasta and put that in a lidded storage box (in case of rodents.) Next week's food shop will add to it, a...

Re: Water butts / prepper porn

I have managed to nab a water butt for free off facebook's buying and selling pages in my area, nearly got another 2 but was pipped to the post! The one I got for free is down my allotment which I keep topped up with water from the water pipe so I have a store on my patch. I got very excited that I ...

Re: Drought Garden

The other thing is to plant cut off 1 and 2 litre drinks bottles in next to things such as courgettes. When I water, I pour into the bottle where it delivers it deep down, as well as on top of the soil. I am going to try next year some bottle with just small holes in them for a trickle feed and othe...

Re: Eating when SHTF

Very good read. I have read the odd thing before on this site from him. Certainly makes you thinks long and hard about those situations. Very far removed from the Hollywood glamour or post apocalyptic survival gaming world - where you always get to start over if you screw up! Thanks for the link.
