Did you just call me a septic?

I'm skeptical....

radish tops are pretty good in saag

if one scrapes the goo and seeds from a vanilla pod for cakes or puds add each pod as it becomes available to a jar of vodka to make extract

Eat kiwi skins. The fuzz isn't as bad as you'd think, it adds to your fiber intake, and you intimidate your enemies.

I actually do eat kiwi skins on the rare times I'm given a kiwi

The French, so I am led to believe, refer to Kiwi Fruit and souris vegetale - vegetable mice. Does eating the skins cause you to cough up pellets, as it does to birds of prey?

"stale" spices that got forgotten in a basket or draw are rather nice on a bbq to both flavour the food and often repel bothersome insects

cinnamon that is too old for adding to rice etc works especially well,cardamom is a bit odd but ok with sheep and chillies are best avoided(mweep better than cs)

Yes 'sceptic' tank, Hots . My tank seems to work, but I don't know how or where it is exactly, as it is sighted on someone else's property and there has never been a complaint in about 15 years, so I suppose it works! And as it is a sleeping dog it can lie!

It's very common. Tanks are old and a pain to move. When people flog off a bit of land, and someone else builds on it, the waste pipe, and/or the tank sit in someone else's plot. Just need a line in the contract to allow access for repairs & emptying.

yup, our is on someone else's land. We have whats called 'an easement' - we can (as long as we tell them) go and empty/repair it. (which we had to do last spring as the outflow had blocked with silt).

I get it, I just have a hard time imagining anyone willfully buying land with someone else's septic on it. May be an artifact of presumably more available land here.
