My cold-unit storage/ cold room in basement

Posted: 22/01/2013 at 09:26

sounds like you have got it right,I use to have a pantry with a marble cold slab ,it kept things cool and a good place to store all those jars and bottles.I wish I had one now,you do have to be careful of damp and have it well ventilated.

What's the weather like in your area?

Posted: 22/01/2013 at 09:18

its snowed again during the night and the side roads are like a sheet of glass as are the pavements where no one has shoveled.I have cleared the front and helped clear a few other paths ,but the snow is taking along time to clear,We have  a leaking pipe under the house in the kitchen,(a mini lake below the floor boards)I think this  the truth about the slugs ,nice and damp ,anyhow more expense.

I think I will plant a lot more berry bushes ,as I have watched many more birds in the pyracantha bush eating the berries and sheltering.(blackbird,thrush,and I thought I saw a fire crest )any how more bushes,water is a problem in how to keep it from freezing and putting seed and nuts out ,they seemed to have ignored.(even the squirrel.....)

squirrel shot for coming to the table.
