  1. Last weekend I lifted my early potatoes that I had growing in raised beds in my poly tunnel. When eating the potatoes they appear to have a tainted taste but cant quite identify it. The raised beds were made from old (10 years +) pressure treated sleepers that I acquired. As the sleepers were not deep enough by themselves I raised the height by attaching two 4" fence posts again recycled from my garden. I did not treat the sleepers again but I did give the old fence posts a coat of Creocote the modern equivalent of the old fashioned creosote and I am beginning to wonder if has given the spuds the tainted taste. The raised beds were new and the soil was a mixture of old grow bags, my own compost, coarse sand and recently dug up soil. Has anyone experienced anything similar. I am thinking that I may have to ditch them all (+/- 6kg) I have now also planted other veg in the space vacated by the spuds. Any advice ?? Cheers, BBL
  2. going to make a start later, going to be busy in the garden now,
  3. Just had my insurance renewal for our 2nd car a Puegot 108. Gone up by £60. May not sound a lot but its the principle. The car is a year older, my mileage has been reduced and I still have to pay more. Shop around time yet again
  4. +1 have to agree thats a very light colored Golden Retriever defiantly the tail is a give away. I have been breeding them for years.
  5. left and right silver birch with a year load of fire wood in the middle distance ?? lol
  6. I see you already live in Scotland and I am sure you know what happened to the previous chief medical officer for Scotland who went for a wee drive. We have to stay at home and not do any unnecessary traveling so there is an official notice in Scotland and I am sure the rest of the UK. I would wait until the 25th of the month and see if things ease up a little. When and where is it that you are due to go. I had a trip over to the outer islands planned for the end of May and a trip to Orkney for end of August, I managed to cancel both my accommodation and ferry's with full refunds.
  7. I worked offshore in the North Sea for 30+ years and that statement would only have come from a few brave heart supporters. Anyone with a bit of savvy who works in the north sea knows different. The oil & gas in the Irish sea and the North sea belongs to the oil company who has the rights to drill for it and they then pay the tax`s accordingly to the country who has given them the drilling rights.
  8. So going back to the initial question, what are we missing and just how did this panic buying get started. was it Donalds fake news ?
  9. SNP want to do away with the reliance on fossil fuels with more wind & wave energy producers so as a Scott who voted NO in the yes - no referendum I dont think they will want to make a big statement again about the oil in the north, North Sea belonging to the people of Scotland. Smoke & mirrors or wind and ****
  10. say for 2 adults X number of trips to the loo a day (for a No 2) by the number of sheets used (unknown) for 14 days I dont think you would need a bulk panic buy of bog roll, just your weekly or monthly shopping when you would normally buy it, especially as most of the large supermarkets do home delivery. it just shows how a large amount of people are like sheep and just follow because someone has suggested it. The mass purchase of bog roll world wide has gone viral quicker than the actual virus.
  11. Recycle news papers just like the good old days you can always do the odd crossword when on the loo.
  12. for a blended whisky well worth it, got a bottle in tescos for £15 and just about to pour one
  13. I re-wax my leather boots regularly but it would appear that I am just layering the wax up and only adding more wax onto the existing wax and not getting into the actual leather. Can anyone suggest a way to remove old wax before applying new. I usually warm the boots up in the cupboard next to my hot water tank before waxing.
