Local loyalty

The number of small businesses is plummeting. Independent businesses are being crushed by concentration of corporate power. Having a robust small-business sector disperses power, which has significant economic, social and political benefits. Rebuilding small businesses is thus crucial to achieving broad prosperity and a thriving economy.
Tens of thousands of small independent businesses have already been wiped out. Many more are at risk. Their demise would further consolidate wealth and hasten the unravelling of small towns and urban centres alike.

Ready to fill the void are some of the most predatory forces in our economy the online tech giants.

Time to make leaf compost in the UK
1. create a 20 to 30cm layer of twigs on the bottom of the pile
2. add a mix 50/50 of brown and green material. Brown= fallen leaves and cardboard Green= kitchen waste (no meat unless you want rats) green leaves, weeds and grass clippings. Scrunch up the cardboard to create air gaps in the pile.
3. add an activator, get your boys to pee in the pile then add a bucket of water.
4. If you don't have a commercial bin, cover the pile with black plastic and leave it until it has broken down.

If you have room you can build compost bays using free pallets. 14/11/2020


Interesting Part Time Home Based Income for Preppers and others. You may have noticed that battery performance (in any device that uses batteries) tends to degrade from year to year. If you buy a laptop, and use it for around four years or so, you may notice that it needs to be charged twice as often as before. As a matter of fact, most of our upgrades in technol...


I have solved one of life's greatest questions...Nobel Prize? Perhaps?

What came first, the chicken or the egg?
I may need to do some further study but I believe that I will get the same result with chicken eggs as I did with quail eggs.

Three weeks ago I ordered some quail eggs online, They arrived in a box on my door step. I put them in an incubator and waited 18 days. Last night I went to bed and there were 24 quail eggs in my incubator. Remember, I started with eggs. This morning I woke up to find that I only had 21 eggs left and 3 eggs had turned into quail chicks.
Therefore the egg came before the chick.

Amazing, don't you think!

Backyard Aquaponics on the Thames
Aquaponics is an excellent way of growing food in your own backyard. A small, simple backyard aquaponics set-up can produce some fresh vegetables and fish.

I catch small perch in the Thames and transfer them to the tank to grow them and clean them up. I have 3 goldfish as well.

All you need for a backyard aquaponics system in a tank for the fish, a hydroponic grow bed for the vegetables, a pump, tubing, and a submersible heater if you live in colder areas (depending on the fish you choose).

An excellent growing medium for a backyard aquaponics grow bed is gravel or clay beads, as it provides support for the plants, acts as a filter, has good water flow characteristics and yields good plant growth. Choosing gravel as the growing bed medium will save you from having to buy filtering elements. The best gravel to use is one with a size of about 1/3 to 3/4 of an inch in diameter. If the gravel is much smaller it can clog and obstruct the water flow. You don't want it too large either, as it will not filter the water and will not provide support for the plant's roots. The gravel will also provide an excellent habitat for the bacteria, which are a crucial component of an aquaponics system. Get smooth, round gravel that is gentle on the hand and on the roots.

If you set-up the system properly, you will need just one pump for the whole set-up to run efficiently. Such a system involves placing the grow beds on top of the fish tank, so that you only have to pump water from the tank to the grow beds. The water will then flow back to the tank via gravity.

Heating of the water is not required if you choose cold water fish, however, maintaining a uniform water temperature will speed up growth of both fish and plants. The reason why plants benefit as well is because the bacteria in the water will be more efficient at converting wastes to nutrients, and the plants will therefore have more nitrogen available to them.

It is a good idea to have a good pH testing kit at hand, as it is tantamount that the pH of the water stays around 6.7 to 7.0. Fish can tolerate pHs up to 8.0, but plant growth will suffer at high pH. On the other hand, plants can tolerate pHs as low as 4.5, but fish will start to die at pHs under 6.5. Therefore, a pH range of 6.7 to 7.0 is optimal to both fish and plants.

What is better than Chickens
Fresh eggs are great but chickens are not always that easy to have about.
Quail are a great alternative, they take up less space, could line on a balcony, are cute, don't crow or cluck, poop smaller and LAY LOTS OF EGGS.
I have two hens that produce 1 egg each every day. I have another 20 fertilised eggs in the incubator that will hatch soon and in about 8 weeks they will start laying egg too, Sure the eggs are not a large but you get more of them per bird.


My top eight gardening jobs for November:
1. Dahlias and other tender bulbs should be dug up and stored in a cool, dark area after first frost, which was last week in Berkshire.

2.The ground should be cool enough to plant tulips over the next few weeks.

3. Don't forget your indoor plants, home heating can dry them out so monitor their water regularly.

4. Clean and oil your garden tools for winter storage. Place some sand and some oil in a large bucket, then slide your garden tools in and out of the sand. Clean and store any empty pots in the shed.

5. It's time to check and fill your bird feeders for winter. Ensure that they are kept clean and well stocked over the coming months to encourage repeat visits from garden birds.

6. There is still time to lift and divide your herbaceous perennials provided the soil isn't waterlogged or frozen.

7. You can start to prune your apple trees and pear trees as soon as they become dormant. Leave plum and cherry trees until next summer as winter pruning leaves them at risk of disease.

8. Plant your garlic.
