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

I'm learning about growing from seed :oops: in other words I'm learning by making every single mistake possible :( mostly planting too late, and not enough light. I need to research growlights for indoors for next season. And for next season I'll manage to buy from realseeds so I can save my own se...

Re: Would You Consider Joining A Prepper Inspired Community?

Rural / semi rural location. Scotland, Wales, Shropshire, Anglesey are among those places to be suggested. Funny you mention Scotland, the fiancé and I have it as our long-term goal to end up there in a sort of crofting scenario. Maybe we'll end up as neighbours anyway! :lol: In seriousness though,...

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

Isn't this a fabulous learning curve though? Especially for younger people who have become used to the easy credit/ongoing ways of doing. Well, I think I'm definitely guilty of being in that category, although I have my Luddite moments :lol: Only started using contactless recently because of places...

Re: Insect bites

Avon skin so soft instead of repellent I've heard that one touted before, does it actually work? :O If so then I might have to make a single exception to my Avon no-buy. Worked up in Stirling Scotland and kielder Northumberland ;) Well, if it's Scotland-proof then that's the ultimate endorsement! :...

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

Forgive me for hijacking with a dumb question, but I'm not the most financially literate person ever and reading back through the last few pages has made my head spin a bit. :shock: Is the current thinking that we should be working in cash rather than having money locked away in the banks, and if so...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Trying to sort out a few bits and bobs before I head off to the Highlands for a much-needed break: - Harvested potatoes, carrots, and sorted out seeds for overwintering crops. - Taken delivery of a gas-powered stove and butane canisters in case of power failures. - Snagged a couple of massive liquid...

Re: Anyone growing winter crops?

Did you know you can recycle some of your kitchen waste? Like your carrots, onions and potatoes? :shock: So you cut a little further down on your carrot tops and onion roots, place in water and in a sunny place for a approx 3 days (change the water daily) then replant? For potatoes that have seeded...

Re: Oh look, a new girl

I remember all too well the 2007 floods and people getting evacuated to Hull City Hall (and less dramatically, teenaged me having to plod home from school in ankle-deep water). I still twitch a bit when the rain's falling just a bit too heavily for comfort! Thankfully my current flat isn't at risk ...
