Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 8.

Wish I still had chickens :cry: still miss them. Garden very nice now but tiny and ornamental only, no food any more. Preps here are once again about health. Getting bloods done, chasing results, interpreting results, and buy my own supplements. Think NHS is struggling too much now for the complicat...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 8.

I think a lot of the new stuff is garbage so it's a good idea to test everything before you really need it.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 8.

The council put air pump heating in a couple of villages and people went mad because they were freezing and paying a fortune. I think most ended up using calor gas heaters. My old house was done when we moved out, so I'm glad they waited until I moved. The coal stove CH was hard work and messy but a...

Peat reek is one of those smells that you never forget, I can always tell if somebody in the village is burning peat :mrgreen: It's much hotter than wood though, great stuff. Just awkward - if you haven't got the knack it tends to go black and sullen on you.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 8.

I'm using up preps and making space for more come autumn. What I need to stash has changed since we moved, and I'm gradually easing into it. I'm a lot nearer civilisation now so can cut down a fair bit. Not growing anything at all is a huge relief really, can concentrate on flowers and plants in thi...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 8.

Jansman what you're doing brings it home to me how much drive and energy it takes to be a prepper. Nobody gets much done sitting on their bums watching tv.
