    good idea Shortie.

    They’re a heavy duty polythene (would make brilliant polytunnel cover 🤣) with a gel in ... bit like wall paper paste.I’ll save the next 2. Lasts a good 48hours.

    Nick, not sure what the frzoen packs are like but hang on to a couple - you may be able to fashion yourself some kind of Frio pack to keep your insulin 'refridgerated' whenever we get to travel abroad again

    I read recently that Marigold type rubber gloves are useful as you can make small bands by cutting across the fingers, and larger ones cutting across the palm and forearm.

    When your jeans give up the ghost and you cut them up for rags cut the seams out first, they make great plant ties and are bio-degradable to boot. the tarparlin bags that buiding supplys come in can be unpicked and used to line your pallet compost heap, cover the water tank to prevent drowning birdies, cover the soil to kill off weeds, wrap around pots to keep the roots warm , the only limit is what you can think of to do with them.
