I was just checking out the website, which goes to a supplier at the same address, offering free delivery *nationally* for orders over £35, and saw 1.5kg of linseed for £3.29. In ordinary Sainsbos etc, 100g of linseed is currently 90p ... I'm definitely going to do an online order when I get back from catsitting, though DYOR applies as always.
Website name won't copy to paste it, which gives me slight pause, its somayaskitchen though. I might do some more research before placing an order myself.
Thanks. Some great prices, but more than that... Great product range and decent bulk quantities.
Link to webstore, if Mods are ok with that

A related site...Same company

More dehydrating, just done more onions and will be doing a bag of mixed veg to add to the stash.

Watched a youtube vid of a guy's FAK and he had a small Collins Gem First Aid book in the kit and I had a Eureka moment so I've ordered a couple to put in my FAK's. First one arrived yesterday and put in my most used set up, I'm far from an expert so could be very handy. I plan on digging out a fresnel lens to put in with the books (when I find them :oops: ) as the writing is quite small for my old eyes.

I scouted out the volunteer-run shop of my local horticultural society this morning - a big shed on a friendly farm. Amazing! They buy big bags of stuff - 25kg - and punters like me can either buy the bags or buy smaller quantities - they act as wholesalers and split it up into smaller quantities. I bought some super potash, and mycorrihzal (sp! :shock: :lol: ) fungi. The roots of my new fruit bushes, to be planted March/ April, will love me :)

Oh, and I met some of the same people again, as well as newer peeps. All good.
