Sorry if I come across as a bit dim but i don't quite understand that . You couldn't just explain it for me please?
Grenfell is not alone in not understanding any of your post. Your follow-ups were not overly helpful, nor, IMHO, were they polite.

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

I just harvested the last of, and bulk of my beetroots and I'm pleased as punch! :D ... This is the biggest crop of anything I've ever grown. I know. Pathetic*, aren't I, but I feel like a proper gardener now. Have carefully rinsed them and set aside in a basket to let them dry out. *Took a photo, ...

Then again is the government just being careful and reactive as they haven’t in the past?

What do you all think?
"they haven’t in the past"
They promised us a better Christmas. Doesn't sound like they have learned much about caution.

Re: How many times can you use a disposable FFP3 mask?

This is an old thread! But still relevant. I mentioned on here about buying some N95 masks - went on to Amazon just now, and I find they're actually FFP2. Mentioned it all to my sister this morning - she already has 40 x N95 masks. I'm not the only prepper in the family :lol: I'll get some of those...

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

Gosh I am no expert, but seem to be able to grow beetroot in containers without any problems. They grow really quickly and you can harvest them as small or as big as you like within a few weeks. It looks like 90 days or more from sowing to harvesting You will find that your end result will be ‘baby...

Re: I got broken into :(

Slightly embarrassed more than anything, I was stupid enough to truly believe my house was almost impenetrable (I appreciate nothing is impenetrable, if someone wants something they’ll get it) ... Has anyone had any experience in having been broken into and how they improved their security without ...

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

We are continuing to vac pack white rice,pasta and tea bags too. We are putting in oxygen absorbers and silica gel packs too. I am fortunate to get 1 and 2 gallon lidded buckets from work,and these stack neatly in our store room. With such long life extension do you still bother to rotate the rice ...

Re: Degraded stocks of Passata.

I really cannot understand why preppers have to push the expiry dates on stored foods. OK,you don’t have to adhere to them chapter and verse,a month or two here and there on Best Before- NEVER Use By. I am in the food industry,and we KNOW how long food lasts,and it ain’t forever. Degraded tins do,a...

Sorry Jansman,
Maybe it's me... With that white on brown small font and very stunted English, I really couldn't read that. I tried and tried, but got nothing from it. Looks like they are mostly planting flowers, rather than Veg.
Thanks anyway.
