Would you pay more for a pint of Milk ?

Hosta, I have just sent you a PM if your around at all.

Would you pay more for a pint of Milk ?

Waitrose is too far for me, I have to use lidl or Morrison, I have no idea what their codes of practice are. Their fresh meat and fish counters have nice food, apart from that, I dont know.

My daughter always uses her local butcher, his meat is lovely and his wife makes pies and pasties and sausages with meat in them!

My brother in law has an organic farm in a tiny village in Devon, they have about 10 milkers and sell the milk privately, his wife does the milk round, the only problem is that they dont have a skimmer and I only buy skimmed milk.

They also sell a few veg from the van or an honesty stall. Very hard way to make a living though, being so small.

If you hold your mouse or finger on the product in the posters picture above,  the info will say, 'search google for this image' click that and the company selling them will be there, I assumed as the poster found that picture, he must have seen the selling site.

He has got that picture off the site that sells them! Bit of free advertising.

As you have got this picture off the net, can we assume its your company, and you are selling them?

Still frozen solid here Nut, I was going to dig your plants today, but will leave it for a bit. Yours are flowering that you sent me, beautiful! thank you.

Panda, do take care, don't ignore any symptoms where your head is concerned. You cant be too careful.

Some very good advise above, I cant add much to that, I started my garden from scratch in 2012, its amazing how it takes off with some time and effort.

It doesnt need to be expensive, the most money I spent is on seed and potting compost. Everything else is cuttings, seeds, bare root plant etc, usually scrounged or swapped. Have a look at the vegetable or seed swap threads on here.

I really must say that for a 17 year old you are doing remarkably well, your post is very well written, I have seen some terrible posts on forums, spelling, etc. So well done you and I hope you make a success of your project.

Ask any questions as you go along and as they crop up. Please keep us posted, we love new ventures and if you can add some before and after piccys, so much the better.
