Re: Allowable exercise

Wondering what is best for going to the plot... car which has had only wife, neighbour, dog & myself in it or going by bike.

The road is a rural/coastal road usually with just couple of local people about suspect will be less now.

Re: Growing lights, any advice?

There is a massive green house system (think in Kent) being set up for growing tomatoes, when asked about lights (red & Blue) they were switched on using his phone.

Re: Today I went grocery shopping for the first time since the panic started

"I understand in many shops, staff are already being abused by ill tempered shoppers, I think a police officer would be needed in every shop to enforce rationing."

Re: Very early Spring Bits and Bobs.

Alternative to toilet paper.. Corn on the Cob Didn’t you know? Corn husks were the earliest toilet paper! The green husks are soft enough for toilet use, and they don’t spoil quickly after husking.

Re: Saving Sweet Potato

Is your a supermarket one Cazz61 as I had same problem last year.

This year I brought 3 off potatoes from Bulgaria £3.90 free p&p.

The one on the right is 3 weeks old the one on the left is 1 week.

Temperature is around 26 degrees.

Fingers crossed they perform well.
