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

We've got a variety of the Aldi ones too. I've demolished an old structure that was on the allotment, leaving the frame which I've given a permanent framed roof and we'll have mesh sides. The plan is to have it full of fruit. :D

Real Guerrilla Gardening!
That's what's inspired it aye. One of the other nearby fields I walk in is on the shortlist to become a school which might muck things up if there's more kids hanging about but I'll hopefully make the most of it in the mean time.

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

Planted some raspberry bushes that were 'spare' up the back fields where I've planted my garlic. I'll be trying to add stuff as it becomes available, nothing to lose and it could add to my local foraging options. I'm quite partial to the wild cherries and brambles etc when I'm out with the dugs. :D

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

Being a prepper covers a lot of subjects :mrgreen: It's mainly a state of mind. An ability to adapt and survive. And wee ratty old ladies can be just as good at it as tough fit ex-Forces men.
