I owned and ran a home brew shop. Grains, sugars, flour. Had a mouse plague (little bastards came in about 12' off the ground) then got rid of the meeces when we had a weevil plague. Expert on both pests! Know about possums too.

that's an option. :bgrin

but beware of mice, rats and ants...they like invading clothes and things.

I have a small 1500 x 3000mm garden shed. Have 2 shelving units of 3 shelves, will buy and install 3 x 1800mm high shelving units, arrange in a U in the back of the shed: nail some dowelling between the two legs of the U and hang shirts from the dowelling.

wow, so you're going to spend 3 mths there..? soon? Hey that is good... :))

Nothing wrong with a good campfire, nothing at all. I'd say it is one of the most relaxing and intrinsically human things to do.. to cook over fire. And then to sit, and watch it, and maybe poke it, and stoke it.. under the sky.....

I hope it's soon, and I hope you really enjoy yourself. :bgrin


Oh yeah .. if you can, I'd suggest a second small tent, for storing foodstuffs clothes etc, that's assuming there is no storage on site.

Picked up my Dutch oven. My but it is heavy! Looking forward to cooking much bread in it next year and after.

3 months temporary, hence the need for some size and different rooms. And heaters!

Re: Gardening

Post by pinkeye » 10 Jun 2019, 21:51

Yeah..if I were to camp again, in a tent, I would choose a pop-up.

We're talking temporary and user-friendly.

That is NOT what Monk described....as follows:

3 rooms, roomy enough, can have clothes organised, food etc (in mouse etc proof containers of course.) Just need a shower tent.

thanks ... looks alright, but assembling those on your own can get tricky, especially if it's windy. Seriously, find a pop up one of possible. It's so much easier.

I have a big 3 room, 8 man tent I use for camping, about 5 years old now .. takes me about an hour to set it up with the wife helping. I recently went to the camping store and they have the same tent, but in the latest version ... a pop up ... it takes 5 minutes to assemble on your own.

I can't see what you're getting but get a pop up tent. Much easier to assemble

“Modern Cider: Simple Recipes to Make Your Own Ciders, Perries, Cysers, Shrubs, Fruit Wines, Vinegars, and More” $6 on kindle. Bought it!

It is easier to stay in a B&B for two weeks—can’t spare the time for tent, chopping wood etc. But 3 months next year not an issue!

Re: Gardening

Post by pinkeye » 08 Jun 2019, 01:42

yeah :bgrin
my dog really seems to like spicy food.
I'm not a huge garlic or onion fan, (good because dogs are allergic ? to onion and ?)
but the curry leaf black pepper and chilli bothers her not at all. :bgrin She does lick her lips and snort, a bit, but really loves it...



So… you don't stay ON your land when you go there..?

you can I'm sure... its a really good experience... fuck the neighbours if they complain.. a small campfire, depending on the weather and wind, shouldn't annoy them too much.....


so get out there man.

Re: Gardening

Post by HBS Guy » 08 Jun 2019, 00:32

Yeah, simple. When I go there for 2 weeks I tend to eat takeaway, not able to really cook in the B&B, too limited.

Hehehe the bloody dog stole the last slice of the chili pizza while I slept for a couple hours, wonder if her belly was on fire :rofl :rofl :rofl It was a real chili pizza, quite hot, hot enough I couldn’t just gobble it down, had to take it a little easy. Stupid food driven mutt! Hot farts I bet, lolololol!

Reek? Well perhaps that is a matter of skill/ and/or situation.

Campfires should not be refused because you think it makes your clothes stink.. :bgrin :bgrin

I do have a small camping two-burner stove.. Bottled Gas Cannisters,, cheap as chips... .. but I only use it whne I'm in the middle of cooking inside, on my old gas range, and I run out of Gas. I occassionally have to finish it off outside, and a fire is not worth the effort. otherwise it just sits there gathering ... stuff.

Anyway, good luck
