I agree with both sides of that argument; it is basically good, but is so vague that it could result in unsuitable keeping of animals and unsafe food if it is not stored right. Coperates do have too m ...

PostForum: Foraging   Posted: Sat Oct 23, 21 6:46 am   Subject: ceps and other things
We did once find a truffle in a wood across the hill from us, but didn't at the time know what it was, or that we were allowed to forage it; it was a long time ago and we were quite young. As far as I ...

Sadly the people that will least affect are the ones making the decisions. The sad fact of thousands getting very cold because they can't get electricity or can't afford heating will pass them by. The ...

We have clay with flints over chalk, which can vary from inches to a foot or more thick. The woods has a moderate layer of leaf mould, but not a real build up, so perhaps no more than an inch on top.

Slim, I am concerned about my livelihood, but we were running down the firewood anyway as we are going more towards charcoal. We live very close to a main road, what you might call an auto route, with ...

Very few butterflies here now. We seem to have a few wasps around, but most insects now settling for the winter, especially as the weather has been a bit wet and windy lately.

Treacodantyl, i agree with you about wood, and Nicky, I understand your problem. We have been thinking for many years about a wood burning cooker, but we have been thinking too long, and now we are ei ...

My feeling on wood burning is that it is better to keep it going if possible, rather than only occasional. Like you, at present, we are using ch in the evenings if it is cold, but in winter we keep th ...

If possible let the wasps live. They are one reason we aren't knee deep in flies, as they feed their young on insects, particularly grubs. I would agree though that finding a nest when doing repairs i ...

Sgt. Colon, I would do the reading before you do the cutting. You may find they recommend something different now. You can't cut until the vine is dormant anyway.

We get some boletes, but have never really worked out what they are. The slugs seem to like them anyway.

Looking at that it depends on how you want to train it. The current trend seems to be to have one rod and grow the grapes off that. The old way was to have a number of rods and to cover the whole gree ...

I would imagine the shape alone turned heads as it is not very usual for camper vans. As proof of concept it is excellent. How easy it would be to make in larger numbers I don't know, but no reason wh ...

I found some puffballs earlier in the week, but haven't IDd them yet. Probably edible, but I am rather wary with fungi.

Brilliant Shan. An exotic as far as I am concerned. Never even had it to my knowledge.
