Acorns

I mentioned foraging acorns a while back on another thread, and when jansman asked me more about it, I was horrified to find out how bad my notes were :oops: so this year, I'm taking action :mrgreen: Until they're ready to harvest, I'll take a pic every month, and then write and photo the processing...

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

If you're looking for heirlooms that you can save the seed from, I recommend Franchi/Seeds of Italy. They're a bit pricier, but sometimes you can get selection pack type things that give you a variety of different veg to work with. It's certainly got me trying some veg that I otherwise wouldn't hav...

Re: Face shields

With the opening up of businesses there has been newsfilm of people wearing face shields. Watching this did make me wonder. One report came from a hairdressers. Client was seated with the hairdresser standing so obviously their head was above that of the client. Hairdresser had a face shield , noth...

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

I'm learning about growing from seed :oops: in other words I'm learning by making every single mistake possible :( mostly planting too late, and not enough light. I need to research growlights for indoors for next season. And for next season I'll manage to buy from realseeds so I can save my own see...

Re: Would You Consider Joining A Prepper Inspired Community?

Son Of Andrew, I think you've got the wrong end of the stick about me, including my level of introspection :? . That's okay, we're just internet strangers, after all. As I already said, we'd "be going way past the guidelines, and this sort of discussion never ends well online". I agree that we can p...

Re: Would You Consider Joining A Prepper Inspired Community?

So, correct me if I'm wrong, but instead of kindly asking Raven to refrain from making the offending comments, and to move along (and doing likewise), you chose to be rude, and to get in a dig with your own little racist, and political diatribe. Just checking. If you're the sort of person to become...

Re: Would You Consider Joining A Prepper Inspired Community?

But I think abut all those babies in Africa which they can't afford to feed and are starving...its crueller to me to have those children, knowing they can't eat. Although I don't see many skinny mummys on those money-wrenching adverts! WTF? The Scottish comments were off kilter enough, Raven, and t...

Re: Would You Consider Joining A Prepper Inspired Community?

What do you envision your near future needs to be and how far ahead do you want to plan for? It's a good question and one that to me questions the whole reason for prepping. I don't mean the idea of keeping a couple of hundred tins of beans in the house which is the sort of thing most of us do to g...

Re: Would You Consider Joining A Prepper Inspired Community?

I wish I'd got online a few days earlier, so I'd have been able to take part in this discussion. "In Muggleton village" Yeah I wish you had too Arzosah! I think use of Muggleton as an example is simply brilliant! :ugeek: Thanks :D Also, without having done research myself, there might be an objecti...
