Re: Power tools

I have a growing inventory of Ryobi One+ tools as I like having a single battery model fitting all my tools. not had any issues with them so far after a few years (though the small hand-held vacuum is pretty crap but TBF I think all of these little vacs are anyway).

Thank you @deeps!! They look great & are way more concentrated than the ones I found where I’d have had to put in 25 tablets!

Re: Courgette poisoning

I've been following this too as I have a few plants though not from the batches/varieties I've seen mentioned so far.

What is your source ...

Re: Long-Term Food

Olive oil will go almost solid when cold, I know this because the bottle we keep in the caravan regularly did as such in the winter. And this reminds me because it has been up & down I'll have to remember to ditch & replace it when next in the van (haven't had opportunity to use it in the last year ...
