  • You sound to be gaining a good relationship with your foods. Congratulations, so many of us could do with gaining our own very personal insights to achieve our own goals, for so many it comes down to achieving better health. In the fullness of time, please up date. Very well done you. Thank you for posting.
  • So few words to convey so very, very much. I'm so very sorry for your losses. The manor of their passing can be so very hard handle. Even if you have been expecting to loose someone, when it finally happens the hurt is savage. Then to loose a second person this cuts into your support system all the more. I wonder if there…
  • Wherever Nony is, I very much hope they are well.
  • Lucky both of you. Our spring was so dry when the fruit should have been thinking of flowering, now we've had no rain for 6 weeks or more so any fruit there is is not swelling. I fear my grape is not going to perform either, our ground has dome real cracks in it. Last year the blackberries all shrivelled on the plants. I'm…
  • Caging the plants with a fine mesh, should keep both out. Extended family rabbits have a super cage, tall enough to stand in.
  • I can't remember the name of the system, it might have originated in Germany. As well as building up soil they started by laying out dried off tree/hedge trimmings and the like, again, I can't remember the maximum diameter. Possibly its an alternative to having raised edges to beds.
  • Here in the UK I'm not aware of any updates in case numbers for months. Its almost as if nothing ever happened. There has been a swirl of coughs, colds and other extraneous irritations being put down to more associations and less careful or frequent handwashing. In conversation with our neighbour she told me she has been…
  • Congratulations - I'd not realised you'd be away so long. Its good the little plants are so well. I can't remember the sprouting time for peppers and eggplant so I can't help there. I'd say as a first attempt one pepper overwintering successfully is really good. Like you say, a few more leaves left on could really help…
  • To leave them in even a small amount of water would run the risk of them drowning. Yes, a damp/wet, not standing in water, towel for them to rest on should be better. I dearly hope you do not loose them. Remembering I do not know your egg crates, how do they do in water? Do they basically just darken in colour as they soak…
  • If your temperature is most likely to stay above freezing you could place the sprouted seed pots onto a wet towel which should work as an additional reservoir. I'm wondering if they will have time to really dry out in 5 days because they do not seem to be in a heated area. How often are you watering the tiny plants? I've…
  • Lettuce is a good crop to grow. I expect you will be doing successional sewing's. By that I mean sewing a few seeds every couple or three weeks depending on the number of lettuces you consume in a week. I have seen some lettuce seeds, titled "cut and come again" so you can have fewer plants because they tend to put up…
  • nanerkay, You can grow more or less anything in pots. Much depends on the things you would like to grow, be they flowers, veg, or maybe column fruit trees. Could even be something for screening from being so over looked. The amount of time you have available for plant care/watering/availability of water too could be…
  • Its so good when a plant comes back despite all the odds. We had a dog who ate peas in pods and another which ate gooseberries. I wonder, how many other peculiar food choices some dogs have made?
  • Wonderful news. Your mother is one lucky lady or may be she has a very healthy immune system. I hope your present difficulties pass quickly. There are some nasty things going about. Wishing you both the very best of health.
  • Its easy done. I looked to see if I could let you know, only I think the system does not seem to permit direct messaging, or not that I could find. May be a change brought about from all the problematic messages which were about a while ago.
  • Our weather is all over the place. We had a dry, very dry February and now we are having it rather wet. LovelyChair you are so fortunate to have planting weather. I had been thinking about growing things again this year only having our hands full with children, having done no planting prep this back end with such variable…
  • kshama, I'm very sorry its not worked out, there is only so much you can do and support you can give. I hope regained distance will help you. Wishing you all the very best in this sad situation.
  • Its good to know some have managed to avoid covid. We have not avoided it. Our bout came at the end of January. The children we look after had colds, one is at school where there had been several cases among parents, who masked up collecting and taking them to school. I tested to be certain I was clear for my regular…
  • Tending towards the Holistic approach myself, not having heard of this condition, realising quickly its increasing in the US, I looked to see if there was an holistic offering for support/relief. I've found a reafference on PUB Med, supporting the use of acupuncture for persons in your predicament. Its referred to as the…
  • If by any chance you are addressing histamine intolerance you might find using b6 and vit C useful, these are needed in combination to make histaminase to naturally reduce histamine levels. Histamine is found in/on pre-prepared foods, fermented foods, meats and everything. Please note histamine can be liberated/released by…
  • I agree fat in your diet is good, I'm not suggesting you go overboard all at once take it gently. Fats underpin hormones and other bodily processes so after protein its essential. I would council against heavily processed vegetable based fats they tend to be less healthy because they are overly processed, heat treated and…
  • Siberiantaragon:- I sympathise with your recently catching covid, we tested positive over the weekend. Its really not helpful. As an aside, but may help others.... Here in the UK I've heard parts of a radio 4 series titled, "is psychiatry working". Its exploring things psychiatry. In parallel with this, following my…
  • I think its easy to underestimate the number of calories it takes doing light home things when you can move. Being tied to a desk, mostly only moving ones arms to the phone or what ever will restrict ones activity. I remember years ago, there was a suggestion for standing desks because sitting at one was so unhealthy.…
  • True I responded to SModa61. Chronic conditions are related to long covid, long covid shares much of the symptoms found in CF and other long term depleting conditions, different people's symptoms are expressed differently. I felt accrediting "work within the home" as one way of taking exercise was essential, even if as…
  • Cleaning is exercise. You are moving as you do it, you could be reaching up for cobwebs, reaching down for something dropped, moving your arms when cleaning windows or a dusting, moving items about, anything from a pencil to a pile of laundry, it all takes more effort than sitting watching the tv. Its varied and true you…
  • I'm very sorry your sleep cycle is really off. I hope in other ways you are feeling easier. I've recently read, it can be possible to reset your sleep cycle, though yours is more than a couple of hours adrift from the majority of us. Its a matter of letting the body know when its supposed to be awake, when you wish to be…
  • I'm deeply sorry for your loss, too. Yours as someone said above is a traumatic shock, there had been nothing to hint at an issue. Believe me its hard enough when you know its a possibility, thinking of my father here. I know you have can have things, given time you might have wanted to tell her. Then there are experiences…
  • I'm wondering if they are a little on the dry side. I'm thinking this because the soil is pulling away from the pots. If you were to rake the soil with a spoon tip I think it would crumble. I know you do not want them standing in water but I'd probably try a little more, probably double what you are giving now. The soil is…
  • Vitamin D and B complex are usually a great help for many. More has been learned about vit d, it seems it has so many uses one being within the immune system. I'm wondering, been reading about sleep quality. Much I've come across recently is saying many of us are not making enough of our breathing, we are not using our…
  • I'm wondering if you would prefer to register the different forms of magnesium, some are more easily absorbable than others and the roles of different forms are different in the body. Probably best to keep it simple though, not everyone needs to address health issues in such a defined way.
