Many thanks again.

Re: Ration Challenge

The amounts listed will enable survival, for sure. The vegetarian thing is interesting, though - in the late 80s, I travelled back to this country from Crete, by ferry and train.

Re: Free online book website

Erm, thats astonishing! I just downloaded a hydroponics book, by Howard Resh (Amazon likes him), and a Dorling Kindersley/British Medical Association Illustrated Medical Dictionary. Just those two on their own are very well worth it, thank you TLB.

Re: Survival & Austere Medicine pdf 3rd Edition

Free kindle books, I think, from the bibliography ... I downloaded the AusPrep book, but never looked at the bibliography at that time. Today I did, and disappeared down a fairly large internet rabbit hole. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Where-There-No-Psychiatrist-Mental-ebook/dp/B07BR7DMCP/ref=sr_1_5?ke...

Re: Easy kidney bean curry

I'm a huge fan of one-pot cookery, but I get stuck on flavour combinations, for food and the sauce, which is why I fall back on pesto too often. These are great, thanks both :)

Re: Environmental Prepping - What we can all do locally

Absolutely. I think it's about having hedging plants, as well as plants in the garden, having several uses, yes, exactly like hawthorn. Leaves, flowers, berries, security (those thorns!), biomass that can be composted or burned (or used for plant supports, or to make hurdles) and supports 300 specie...
