In the meantime, I had a supermarket delivery yesterday (not huge, but lots of staples) and the frozen stuff stayed out of the freezer - dehydrator is doing its thing on them :)

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

I'm *so* regretting booking that dratted holiday. If I get smacked by Covid 19, or La Cumbre Vieja, or a Saharan sandstorm, can I ask you all to intone "we told you so" at an appropriate moment? :mrgreen: :roll: And if all goes well, make a point of telling us not to over react again. Thanks Jenny!...

Re: Greetings from Lincolnshire

Welcome back, tco! The prospect of micro hydro *and* an onsite generator. I have hydro envy :lol:

Sustainability is the thing, isn't it - certainly doesn't need to be "end of days" to like that concept. Carry on posting :D

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

I've finally been able to stop faffing about tidying for long enough to do some genuine prepstering: I've been checking the "best before" dates on my 2 litre water bottles to know when to renew :oops: some are way out. While water doesn't go off, of course, given what we now know about microplastics...

Yeah, I like roses, but there's a limit to how many rose petal sauces you can eat (first world problems). Beginner with very little time = perennials like rhubarb and berry fruits, a...
