Re: Augmenting the stash: Pesto etc.

Absolutely sincere. Won't be very nice in gin though, but great in rice, chicken and as a condiment. New discovery for me. Belazu do a jar which is pricey, I noticed our local Asda does a cheaper version which I haven't tried yet.

Re: Tiny garden growing

Loads of time to get more French beans in. Dwarf French beans are dead easy, need almost no looking after, and very productive. I sometimes direct sow after harvesting spuds. If the weather stays good we get a crop, if not I just cut it down for green manure. Get some more in.

Re: Wearing a lanyard while driving

Side note - I see a lot of cyclists wearing heavy chains and padlocks across the chest and over one shoulder, or around their waist. The damage they would cause in an accident would be horrific - imagine a shunt when you land with your full body weight on a small piece of steel.

Re: Allotments, where to start ?

Get yourself a copy of John Harrison's Veg Growing Month by Month (adapt for location though) and Hessayon's Veg Expert - there are loads of good books about and I have many of them but these two are the best. Talk to your lottie neighbours about what does well and doesn't. Some will be stand-offish...

Re: Tiny garden growing

This is a great start and I'd say you've done everything right so far. Buying inputs and plugs isn't cheap but it is a good way to take some of the inception costs out of the experiment and get some experience before proceeding. I'm sure you're thinking of this already but you'll need to be right on...

Re: Disneyland Paris kit list

Plenty of plasters, snacks and drinks. They'll be running around like mad, falling over and getting hungry and thirsty and you'll spend a fortune on snacks and drinks if you buy them over the counter. And yes, lost child protocols, phone numbers, RV points are a must. My kids get our phone numbers w...

Re: Self Build to include a bunker

Really miss my cellar. It had space for storage, and space for a workbench. Bit low to work in though as I used to regularly crack my head.
