    I also put my name in mine, but then again, i think i’m the only one posting from the UK, so its pretty obvious anyway!!.:D

  • replied to the topic 2010 Home-made Swap in the forum Swappers Central 10 years, 2 months ago

    my parcel was put in the post on the 4/5 in the UK….should be there within a week i hope!.

  • Hi Lizzie, not sure i can help to much, but can give you an example of how i’ve managed this Easter Break. I took 2 additional days off as i knew i had alot to do on my allotment(rented vege patch). as last week started the weather forecast (un surprisingly….this being England:lol:) started saying rain!. so i drew up an ‘inside’ list and an…[Read more]

  • I’m allowed in, so thought i would add to this list.

    I think the major thing if you get me is remembering you have to post to the UK, so something lightweight would be good.

    colourwise i’m easy, although i don’t really like pastelly shades. i’m very into becoming self sufficient, so anything reuseable that could replace throw away items would…[Read more]

    i’m joining in as well…..i’ve had a wee word to Lady B about being overseas and she says she’ll sort it:hug:

  • just to say my recipes arrived today…..thankyou mumof6…..she sent an Australian cookbook….the naughtygirl!!….very heavy postage costs.

    thank you Kylie:clap::hug::kiss1:

  • yay Lizzy, so pleased they didnt get caught in the strikes over here. Enjoy…..i’ll be making my first batch of this years butter tarts soon…..it’s nearly xmas, right!!!!

  • i put my recipes in the post this morning….hopefully they will arrive by the beginning of next week.

  • If it’s the BBC one with James Wong, theres also a book with all the recipes and extra info on medicinal herbs.

  • i was going to post mine off today, but we have an impending 2 day postal strike starting thurs, so i will wait a week and post…..i dont want to get mine lost in the system.

    also, since i’m the only one from the uk, i have actually named mine…..its gonna be pretty easy to work out who i am anyway!.

    Hi Turina, one of the best bits of advice i’d had and seen given out about starting off on a self sufficient lifestyle is to learn as much as you can before you get to the land, if you have the chance……so like you say, learn how to start a garden, manage it, store the crops etc. look at a few chooks, gather lots of infomation and enjoy the…[Read more]

  • replied to the topic Red Kidney Beans in the forum Vegetables 10 years, 9 months ago

    not sure it helps at all…… the ones i’ve grown over here are called ‘canadian wonder’ and were billed in the catalogue as ‘the’ red kidney bean. not sure if its a world wide name and then if you can get them in oz…..a good heritage seed seller should be able to help.

    the other thing is…..you need to plant loads to get a good storage…[Read more]

  • since we’re now including preferences…….for the best bet, baking or pasta dishes for me, altho not flavoured with coffee, walnuts or seafood!.

    i dislike seafood, walnut and almond flavours, coffee, offal, eggplant…think thats the main ones…..am overall pretty easy going, and am happy to look at subsitutes if i dont like an…[Read more]
