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.

Re: Stealth Allotments

...Talking to a like minded friend we've decided next year to give it a try as an experiment. Im guessing it'll be a numbers game to get a decent return and wondered has anyone else tried it. If so did it work, where did you try and any tips? Thanks To restate the question: Has anybody here actuall...

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

Those mushroom crates are everywhere. Any restaurant or cafe ,where they do a fry up will have them to go in the bin. We do do a dozen a week at least,and 2/3 gallon lidded buckets by the score. Just got to ask,as they now present a waste disposal problem. Obscene plastic waste! I've bought a tray ...

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

Last week, I bought four dozen 30litre collapsible storage crates from Lidl. A steal at £2.50 each*. So, I've been rearranging my food storage, chucking out some of the big stackable cardboard fruit trays and replacing them with these. I still like and use those cardboard trays, but they are not hel...

Re: Meat tax

I always think a tax is a unfair way of dealing with this sort of thing. A ration system would be much better , more uniform and wouldn't adversly affect the poorest in society. Easy then to extend to things like sugar and alcohol to target obesity , tooth decay and alcoholism. I doubt it will be a...
