Chicken lice - Organic solutions

I have been reading up on organic solutions for lice and came across an article that recommends soaking hen for 5 minutes in a solution of salt water, then soak for another 5 minutes in dish washing liquid and water, and repeat in two weeks. The only problem here is that my hens are free range in my backyard (as an organic solution to slugs, etc) and are ex battery hens, so they are not easily picked up without causing stress. They will come around my feet but if I try to pick them up they run.…See More

Glacial acetic acid - Cheapest in Chch?

Hello guys,Where is the cheapest glacial acetic acid I can find in Chch?I am happy with 50ml or less, but haven't found so far. Pharmacies sell 100mL in the 20$-30$ range, affordable, but a rip-off nonetheless for the basic chemical it is.Cheers!See More

Winter diary

Have dug in the sheet composted coffee grounds and grass clippings. I think it makes a better veggie bed combining the organic matter with the topsoil although no-dig purists may disapprove. Have planted out a lot of self sown corn and lettuce seedlings and mixed the corn with broad beans. Need to add squash for the Mexican triumvirate. The whole site is covered in weeds now and we are finally getting some mandarins, lemons, limes and oranges.

Gluten free

Junko has researched and perfected a number of gluten free bread and cake recipes to get me off the wheat energy roller coaster. I don't fall asleep in the afternoon now and my bakery bill has dropped. She's using mixtures of spelt, rye, rice, corn and potato flours. Some taro and a couple of bananas have survived where I chucked them in the corner soak hole where the run-off ends up. Comfrey is everywhere. I miss my chickens - if anyone in Akl needs to get rid of a couple of layers please…
