It would certainly be useful to have one within easy distance here. I do know of one, but it is a bit out of my way. May try them when I start to deliver charcoal to them in the summer.

It will depend very much on the composition of the mud. If there are worms in it, it should produce good growing conditions. Any seeds that are already there will germinate, and that will depend upon ...

Is that a sparrowhawk Dpack? Rather hard to tell from the picture I am afraid.

Sitting still and observing does have great advantages. I am afraid it is a thing that I am not good at, but nearly s ...

Similarly. The season in this part of the country, mainly down by the coast, is quite long for 'exotics' like peppers and tomatoes, especially with glass houses, which shouldn't need heating to extend ...

It may not grow as well for us as for you Slim. I can see why cedar would have been popular for canoe ribs as it is quite light.

Yes, broomcorn seems to be favoured in the US. It could be more con ...

Sounds as if you had a productive day Gregotyn. Hope you get plenty of nets of kindling as payment. A good thing to talk to the doctor about your memory. I think I have read there are methods of impro ...

We just have a choice of plastic from all sorts of places and glass delivered. I have heard that the only delivery people are not too good, but may try them some time as it depends very much on the ro ...

I suppose it is healthy that we are asking that question. I haven't had time to read all the stuff you posted Slim, but thanks for putting it up.

As far as split dried peas are concerned, they are ...

Sounds a good idea. Be interested to see how you get on with them over time.

I remember having a bristle toothbrush when I was young and it was horrible. More eco friendly, but wouldn't like to re ...

We only have downy and silver birch. The bark would certainly not make a canoe, as when they get to a reasonable size, the bark gets fissured and broken. It is usual to either split or blaze them to r ...

Thanks Ty Gwyn. I knew it was from the west coast of the US, but not that it was a better construction timber. Of course in the US the eastern hemlock may be better, as it may grow better in native ha ...

Greogyn, if you speak to your doctor about your forgetfulness, he may be able to help. I think there are ways of improving without using pills and potions, but you need to learn them. One thing is to ...

Ty Gwyn, it came out in 2018. I don't know if it was publicised in the mining press, but we saw it and responded to it. Only house coal is affected; no other grades at the moment, so higher quality co ...

There was a consultation, but it was heavily biased towards regulation. I took part in it, and I think a couple of the quotes against the regulation may be mine. The questions are now available on lin ...
