    Soda Stream Hack

    Welcome to the soda club mark. I am toying upgrading as mine is getting old and overused.. been going strong though for several years. When I purchased mine came with the cordials and they are still in the cupboard. (probably out of date now)... I have to say I wasn't a big fan. much preferred...

    Building my Quail Pen , by Jen

    LOL @stevo you have read my mind... Problem I have is 11 quail is not enough if you want quail for both eggs and eating. So I recon double the stock is required. I have 20 eggs in the incubator at the moment and if they successfully hatch I will be in drama.. Was thinking I will have to put...

    Building my Quail Pen , by Jen

    I have had to make a mod on my quail feeder. One of the girls worked out that if she got right in there she could scratch the food out. Then the others followed so food was all over the ground. With all this rain it got wet then started to ferment and stunk to high heaven. So situation has to be...

    My backyard

    Thanks for sharing Paul. How fantastic that the enclosure was already there even if left to ruin. You have done a great job in getting it all back up and running again. You just need some more birds now to fill up the other side... Maybe try some quail :-) How cute is Jimmy.

    Weed free vegetable garden idea

    Great idea but what a massive effort cutting all the holes and disks. I suppose you can use the disks next year but is the black plastic really only useful for one go?

    Janoel Model 12 Premium incubator

    Yeah was a real shame.. Was my first batch of eggs not a good start and on new year... Then on top my isolated male quail died for some reason overnight. My parents have a two story house so I think I will collect some more then incubate my next batch there when they get home from holidays...

    Water kefir, Milk kefir - natural fizzy drinks & Labneh

    I don't think I have ever really made successful bread out of this machine. That's why it was hidden in the back of the cupboard. I think in the past they all came out as bricks and even the dog wouldn't eat it... So have had way more success with this loaf. Machine has a quick 2 knockdown...

    Water kefir, Milk kefir - natural fizzy drinks & Labneh

    Hi @Tim C I tried your sour dough loaf idea.. I purchased a standard white bread mix and replaced the water with kefir whey. I don't have a French bread setting on my machine...(it's very old). I am not sure if it was my setting but bread has come out very rubbery. Nice toasted though. Your...

    Co-operative Village living

    MMM I do understand the advantages of this type of living... but you would have to have a very community inclined personality I would think...... The support to be able to live off the grid would be great and direct access to other like minded people for help. You can also do so much more as a...

    Water kefir, Milk kefir - natural fizzy drinks & Labneh

    Thanks @Justin Dallas .. I will try it on the quail. So do you just put the kefir milk in a dish pop it in with them and away they go? Do you have to make a mild version or don't they care about the bitterness?
