Re: Car kit

This is a daft question, but I've seen mention of a stove in car kits a few times on this site. How does that work? Surely an open flame is a bad idea in a car?

Re: The Home Medicine Cabinet.

What all are folks keeping in their medicine cupboard, I'm moving out in the next month or two and my current list for the medicine cupboard is below, admittedly a lot of it is focused on not being miserable with the flu when living alone again: - Paracetamol - Ibuproefen - Covonia - Lemsip (or equi...

Re: Square foot gardening.

That's class Jansman, is there much of a difference in yields compared to normal raised bed growing (adjusted for the smaller growing area overall) ?

Re: What are you dehydrating?

Lemons are great for freezing. I have a bag of lemons and a bag of limes pre cut in the freezer if the need for cocktails arises. Ginger on the other hand, I'm not so sure. I got a load of cheap blood oranges a few months back I tried to dehydrate. After a couple of weeks it was furry. They need to...

Re: What are you dehydrating?

Has anyone had much joy dehydrating lemons or ginger? I always have to buy them when I'm cooking a specific dish but never end up using more like 1/2 of them before they go bad. Normally pretty decent at not wasting food but those are an exception.

Something that slipped my mind - washing clothes

Washing machine packed up, not the end of the world because we’re able to use a washing machine in another house (it’s empty atm, because the owner has been staying with us during the lockdown). While we’ll be fine this time, in future I’m going to store a bottle or two of handwashing soap so the ba...

Re: What preps are you going to do after Coruna?

Is the issue not that local council and NHS funding is based on an areas population. I.e number of hospital beds/ventilators per 100,000 people. So if there is a sudden dramatic increase in numbers, if can mean that local systems suddenly have too few facilities. When things are running as normal n...

Re: What preps are you going to do after Coruna?

I also found the hatred for second home owners quite interesting, especially as they all pay council tax and rates for their properties, I do wonder if the local councils in these rural communities take their money for granted. I would question the legal position of banning people from attending a ...
