  1. There's always the dark web. It's easy to access if you know how.
  2. My tomatos are rubbish this year. The compost I bought from Lidl seems crap.
  3. It's ridiculous. Another 30%+ going into utility bills in October. How are people meant to find this money.
  4. I knew about the potatoes but not how to dry seeds. Can you dry them on kitchen paper and then use next season? This thread is awesome.
  5. Some of you more experienced gardeners might know this, but I only learnt it last year and think it's an interesting tip. I bought potted herb plants from the supermarket, basil and mint worked best. Snip a few ends off, and take all leaves off the cutting apart from the ends. Put them in a glass of water for a couple of weeks and they root. You can then pot them up and you have a new plant. Last year i kept them on my window, but this year I made some planters out of old pallets that I'm planning to fill with herbs and lettuces. If you buy a potted chives plant, you can snip the ends off and eat them as normal, split the clump and plant it outside. You can then keep using them when they grow back, and they survive the winter. I think there must be more top tips like this out there, it's just discovering them.
  6. Good on you mate. Great idea too. I planted Jerusalem artichokes in my garden. Never eaten them before, but they are coming up. Apparently they grow like a 9 foot sunflower in summer which dies off. You then dig the root and they grow edible tubers like spuds. Chuck a couple back in for the next year and they will keep coming. I've got some chard too. I read that grows back every year.
  7. Snap I stashed around 100 tins in lockdown 2. Started using a few here and there but barely dented the stash. I'm starting to stash things again. Not panic buying level, just a few bits weekly. I think it will pay off.
  8. Definitely. My thinking is, if potatoes suddenly become short on supply, I have a sack in the shed that I could last several months on. Most people will generally have a few in from the supermarket that really don't last long as they are washed and clean. If things start drying up I can easily grab another sack. A lot of people living in cities don't even realise this sort of luxury! I am stashing a few tins a week now. Canned veg, soup, fish. Plus dried beans and pulses.
  9. I haven't bothered with potatoes. I already buy mine from a local farm. They cost me a fiver for a 25kg sack, still have the dirt on them. They keep really well in the shed and last ages. They generally have them all year around, but I guess that might change if there are shortages.
  10. I'm going to start stocking up on tins and died for again.
  11. I'm trying to grow my own food in a raised bed and some flower beds. It's not easy. I have limited space and not much has started growing outside yet. Some radishes, carrots beetroot and artichokes are starting. I have a couple of fruit trees, tomatoes and chili's indoors, and some beans and peas started too. Also done perennial kale plants. It's going to be a struggle to feed the family at this rate!
  12. Vaccine shedding from adults who took AV vaccine? Sounds like something has gone wrong with the astra vax and how they used the chimp adenovirus. Will they admit it it they actually find out? I doubt it..
  13. Apologies if already posted. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/trial-moon-shot-covid-vaccine-single-results-expected-b2063870.html This seems odd to me. Since when did the US army become vaccine specialists. I have read that they are discharging refusers now. I think this will probably be the next stage in the covid pandemic. Is this secretly Pfizer or something?
  14. The whole point now is for vaccine passports / digital IDs. Cash will disappear. They are already in the process of bringing in central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), and moving into web 3 will make everything Blockchain based. With these things in place they will implement a social credit system. They have already openly spoken about CBDCs being programmable so your money will expire, or can only be spent on certain things. I believe this is where we are heading. If covid doesn't achieve it, the Russian war will. Different disaster, same end result.
