When you're ready to rinse your milk bottles out to recycle, just fill up with with water & tip that on the earth around your plants as it's a good, mild fertiliser.

 

i just bought a book about wormeries because I've not got room for a compost bin. Does anyone have experience with those? If I had room, I'd try a hot bin, as they sound like the bees knees.

My wormies, pic1 top layer which I think the use as a playground

Pic 2 -the business end (bottom of top layer and second one down.

It took me two goes to get it going but instead of buying worms the second time they came out of an outside compost bin. all of mine have names.

Worm castings is a great source of organic nitrogen for the plants. The worm pee is liquid gold as well.

I have been wanting to build one of these for some time and you have just gave me the kick start I needed.

Nice job.

I am living in an area where there are some farms near by, so might be ok here but im worried about city dwellers when the pinch starts to really kick in.

 

I hate to tell you this, but I live in a rural area surrounded by fields....and virtually no one grows anything!

Maybe it's different where you are but most farms here consist of cattle or sheep and that's it.

Nobody seems to want to grow anything. There is a small Tesco in the local village that has fruit and veg.

Also in the village is a veg shop. If both of those can do business selling fruit and veg it points to the same thing, which is that growing food is considered too time consuming and labor intensive for most to bother. 

I'm convinced that most modern rural folk have lost the ability to grow their own food because it's much easier to just buy it.

If the shop supplies dry up it may be too late for them to start re-learning what their parents and grandparents did.

There's a author of food books called Jack Monroe (real name Melissa) whose books are about eating on a budget with few ingredients. Her father is ex military with MBE. He/she ticks all the transgender boxes, left campaigns. All predictive programming. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Monroe

In the commons today the government is apparently going to investiGATE/S as to why there have been so many cases in meat processing plants. But of course the root cause will not be established because the real cause in caps will not be named, they will just say it is because the conditions are cold.

I have been getting interested in pyramids; did I find out about those here? Can't remember. Anyway, said to have a very beneficial effect on plants (and other living things) due to the effect of the shape in gathering ambient energy (AKA chi, prana, orgone, "the force" etc.).

 

More here: https://chestofbooks.com/new-age/metaphysics/Pyramid-Build/

 

Wilhelm Reich did a lot of amazing work with copper pyramids until the FBI/CIA stole his life work and jailed him. He was also the creator of orgonite. The pyramid structure holds very powerful healing energy, it is just sad the shape and symbol has been adopted by the evils.

Unless you have a metabolism like mine, which is akin to that of a cheetah.

 

You too? I say that mine is like a hummingbird. :classic_laugh:

 

I know I probably should not divulge this since of course I run the risk of depleting the supply but y'all who are stocking rice, you're breaking my heart. Rice is so not good for you, white rice anyway, brown rice is ok. But white rice literally absorbs water from the body and acts as a paste in the intestines. If you can find it in you to switch to quinoa please give it a try. It keeps well in the freezer for months and is alkaline. I've had bags in the freezer for the past six months and they are fine when I open them. And we are helping to support the economy of South America I the Andeans, quinoa comes from Peru and Bolivia. More countries should try growing quinoa.

 

The "representatives" are so worthless, if they knew anything about running a country or a species they would have been trying to educate people about agriculture and getting more people into it. And permaculture. I suggest that people buy some grow lights, they will help you grow veggies indoors.

Dehydrated veg. This wins over any grain for health benefits. It stores for 10 years and tripples in size once rehydrated. Just add it to soups and watch it grow like magic in the water. You lose some vitamins in the process but not much. Stll way more healthy than eating no veg at all though. Good tip on the quinoa though. It takes up no room in the cupboard either (very small grains).

Is cous cous ok ? There's an abundance of that in our local middle eastern shop and I do like it.

 

I hate white rice I do like nutty brown rice though especially with cinnamon stick in the boiling water to fragrance it.

You get one of these machines.  You will get addicted to dehydrating things at first, and you'll be dehydrating day and night...lol.  Just make sure you keep the temperature below 125F in order to preserve nutrients.  One thing you can do is dehydrate onions, celery and carrots all mixed together, so you can keep this handy to toss in soups and sauces.  Also, mushrooms are very nutritious and after you dehydrate them they weigh next to nothing. Squash and zucchini are also easy to do.

Do you need to store airtight ? In jars or plastic?

Sorry for not replying to the question. I've been working in the garden all day long. The machine as mentioned works great or you can buy them ready done (at the moment still if you get in quick before the gold rush.

As for storage just get as much air out as possible. No need for a vacuum machine because you can just use water to the same effect. Watch this link for a great tip.

It's also good to toss an O2 absorber in the bag before getting the air out.  that will suck up anything that's left.   I have vacuum sealed bags of organic red wheat berries w/O2 absorbers in them in a bucket that's been sitting for 10 years.  It'll prolly last another 10 years easily.

Now another food processing plant in the UK has reported cases of our friend Bills COV-ID. This one is a Princes tinned food factory in Wisbech Cambridgeshire. Would you adam and eve it!

 

To add to the food shortages list around the world as well Syria's wheat crop is being set alight, fields of wheat on fire and they are not going to get shipments from outside.(see UK column news from today 24th June). Syria is also being bombed again by its neighbours, so expect more problems there in the coming months. Trump is being blamed by Russia for the wheat burning but i am not so sure, i think its a deep state instruction and blaming trump to cover it up.

 

So more food news almost daily now, building up the narrative it seems.
