The only advice you need to give to anybody that you give wood to must sweep their chimney regularly. Softwoods are not as greatly admired for giving heat as hardwoods are, but if they are cheap enough or free, that's a different matter.

If you stack the wood correctly it will dry out well. Remember to cut the wood in lengths to suit your woodburner. You will save yourself so much work if the logs are the correct length.

If you don't intend to use the shreddings in the garden, what do you intend to do with them? Being acidic can be useful, round acid-loving plants, and for paths, perhaps.

Edging my lawn - what to do with the cuts?!

Or you can put the off-cuts in an old plastic sack; seal it and leave it to rot down for six months and you will have some loam.

Can you describe the flower? If it seeds freely, what does the seed pod look like?

I suspect a weed.

When you can see the stalk starting to come away from the fruit. And the smell.............

Also there is no need to remove leaves to speed up the ripening of tomatoes. It doesn't.

Storing Potatoes & Onions Together

Potatoes MUST be stored in paper or hessian or other light-excluding material. Never in plastic, Keep them cool. Commercially they are stored at fridge temperatures, but most of us do not have big enough fridges.

Beware listening to the advice given by 'Someone,' often it is wrong!

I cook mine in the microwave. Only pick the ones you are going to eat immediately.
