Would you pay more for a pint of Milk ?

Posted: 20/01/2015 at 19:54

4 pints for 89 p.   

(When milk was delivered ...esp in the summer......it was often sour.  It must be a difficult job being a milkman esp if self employed.  They need to pick up milk evening before to deliver next day.  So not the freshest tasting !)

 we need to do "our own thing" here.  Nobody should criticise the other for behaving differently.  Absolutely nothing wrong with choosing the least expensive option.  I save hundreds on big purchases and less on everyday ones..........doesn't make me a " bad person" . My courage to haggle serves me well 

HELLO FORKERS!

I drink loads of milk.....plus gold top Which I love.

I'm happy to pay as little as possible for milk and most everything. ,I'm honest about that.  However, I'm also a big supporter of the little man, the underdog, the bullied etc

its the supermarkets' fault that milk producers are underpaid. The middlemen will always get rich at the expense of producers and consumers.  

If we offer to pay more it won't improve the producers' lot.  It would be naive to think it would Im afraid.

Talkback: Vine weevil

I wouldn't wash them now.  If they look good, feel firm and have no obvious holes I would simply keep them frost free and dry now.  Anything looking suspicious I would get rid of 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Welcome to forum Rosy.  Nice to have you on board

Hiya Drywsdad

dont use that compost again.  Not just because of vime weevil but because fresh compost will be sterile and nutrient rich.  

I would not put on veg patch either but trays are good.  Spread the old compost and delight the birds.   I would eventually add to compost heap

Should I plant conifers now (Mid Jan) or wait for it to warm up

Peter,I would plant now too.  A windbreak netting could be erected too if it's esp windy there,

how about a holly down there instead of another conifer?
