Re: New composting bins

I bought a heavily discounted square plastic compost bin, from Blackwall, it has four slot together panels and a slot-on-the-top-of-a-side-hinge lid for the top.

Woke up Saturday with my nose running like a tap.

Re: Roast pumpkin & winter squash seeds

That's the variety I initially tried, very thick seed case, very slim contents.
The next year I tried a seed producing (for human consumption) variety, still slim contents, just in a thin case. :?

Re: Drying winter squash seeds for eating

Primrose, I tried that once, there wasn't enough edible content to be worthwhile, there are varieties bred for seed as a crop.

Let us know how it goes.

Re: Early Autumn Bits and Bobs.

Only because I'm in my Saturday's home game environment. The shutter if down because, guess what, we have wind and rain aimed right at it.

Re: Searching the best mini gas tiller

Honda do some quality ones,.
I'm guessing you are not in the UK, "gas" being petrol.
