Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Yes my mind has been focussed on a possible second lock down and on Brexit. Looking at topping up the essentials first such as flour, sugar, baking powder, rice, noodles and pasta as some of those can still be hard to get sometimes when you go to the supermarket. Then I will look at tinned meats, ti...

Re: New Potatoes

I have had the same issue down south here. Aaran Pilots I think were my earlies. Some of them did get nobbled by frost but continued to grow. However most of them are stumpy. I have dug 3 plants and got some new potatoes from them but they are generally small apart from the odd good sized one and th...

Re: Whey Protein Supplements

We tend to keep a supply of the Quest protein bars as my daughter used to eat them due to her ill health. They are quite a good thing to keep if you consume them anyway from time to time. Their shelf life seems to be about 6 months or there abouts so not a good long term item but still useful in the...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Rotated out of the garage and into the kitchen some tinned tomatoes and baked beans, some jars of Olives and pesto, and coffee. Now need to add those to this weeks shop to restock and then some extra on top. Realised we'd used all the spare stock of UHT Soya milk that a family member needs as during...

Prexit prepping post covid

Now the bank of England is telling businesses to prepared for a no deal Brexit ( https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/brexit/boe-governor-tells-banks-to-prepare-for-no-deal-brexit/ar-BB14XJA1?ocid=spartandhp ) I was wondering if Covid has made a change in how we see things panning out but also how it effe...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

I would try the best of both as it were. A washing machine is expensive but a must have item. If you have the money now, I would invest in one now. At least it will be covered by a guarantee for 12 months or so. One worry off your mind of having a machine breaking down. A new mattress is good for yo...

Re: 2nd wave preps

I think it's not just "second wave of Covid-19" but I would imagine that this autumn/winter, if anyone gets any kind of lurgy, then folks are going to be more inclined to take time off work/ be banned from coming into work which in itself could lead to issues. Most winters we all struggle and push o...

Re: Blueberries

Thanks. Yes I discovered that my soil wasn't that good for them as they aren't happy on clay. Funnily enough after posting, I too researched them a bit more. I'm giving a little bit of tomato rite liquid feed to mine this season and will try to improve the soil in the autumn before I mulch again. Th...
