Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 5.

My P/R campaign on Her Maj seems to have worked, suggested we could do with some more tuna as we're going through it. Normally she'll just bang on about the "million tins in the garage" but no, she was fine and didn't bat an eyelid as I was putting more pasta,sunflower oil, beetroot etc etc in the t...

Re: Winter food prices

Farmer on the Scottish weather forum is saying the same thing Jansman, no grass left and no silage. And earlier on they were predicting a bad winter coming on the long term forecasts. :lol: Not knocking but we're a gloomy lot, the longest hot spell in years and we're worrying about having to 'brace...

I have a memory of trying beef jerky & it being like chewing an old shoe so not currently on my "go-to" list :)
My homemade stuff needs a lot of spit to soften. It has lasted though, its quite a few years old now.

Re: Importing "prepper" food & import duty?

Oh I do understand, and as you say, given a situation where it's all you have then I certainly won't be refusing it, I'm just talking in terms of being able to prepare now, in advance, & trying to stock up on the best balance of convenience/eatability (new word there! :) ). I still haven't reached ...

Re: Pain

Exactly! Work smart, not hard. Mrs J says that as manager, I need to delegate. She is right. What I need to look at is the whole weight/ movement/ workflow situation.YorkshireAndy, a forklift for movement from fridge to shop is impractical- but sackbarrows ARE practical. So much so, that I have ord...

Re: Importing "prepper" food & import duty?

Not trying to push the veggie option but a large chunk of the worlds population live on a largely veggie diet because they have to. It will keep you alive although I've said often enough in the past that I could be a veggie any day of the week, just not every day. ;)

Re: Pain

I have been going bonkers Deeps! I like to fish, as you know, but only so much. I am going in tomorrow, but the whole team ( via social media) have told me to take it easy, as I am a bit ‘Blitzkreig’ when it comes to shifting stuff. The body and mind needs work. I guess it won't be easy but you'll ...

Re: Importing "prepper" food & import duty?

Protein can come from more than meat, beans etc are good and very very cheap, keeping chickens might be another option, even if just for the eggs. Fish is really good for protein AND other good stuff. Of course, you can pickle stuff too to preserve it for long term. It will depend on space or weight...

Re: Pain

We maybe can't self moderate mate, done it for you.

As for the never retiring, I think that comes down to the individual, I've got mates (and a wife) like you who can't be sat doing nothing. Me, not so much, my problem is getting off my arse and doing things. ;)

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 5.

Her Maj is off tomorrow and I've been dragooned into going to the allotment. Need to up my dehydrating too, apart from replenishing my hill walking meals I've been pretty lazy on that front. Got lots of onions to get done so maybe tuesday when she's back to work. A sort of prep, I've been dumping lo...
