Cardboard

Guess you have tons of this stuff.

So what do you do with it.......for most of you it will be the recycling bin.

A few others may put it in the compost bin as it rots down well

Personally I cannot get enough of it so what do I use it for....

If you do decide to have a go make sure the spawn you buy is from a proper supplier such as thompson & morgan, don't risk using any firm you have never heard of, sure you might get the mushrooms to grow but they could be the last you will ever eat.

Re: Cardboard

 Cardboard is great stuff. We have an aging cat who is a bit clumsy in his litter tray. The cure? Put it in a big box, put in a small partition wall so he walks off the granules on his feet in the box and at the far end I have cut a cat flap sized hole for him to get in and out. It also offers him an emergency retreat from our toddler. It also stops our toddler from playing with the cat tray.

It's also good for laying on the carpet just inside the back door so when you come in from the wet garden you can change footwear in the nice warm house rather than out in the cold 

 

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Cardboard

As pensioners, we save the brown cardboard stuff (thanks Amazon), shred it, boil it in water and add an oxo cube. Makes terrific soup.

Re: Cardboard

Some good suggestions there.

Nothing worse than being kept in the dark about what's going on.

Re: Cardboard

@twocvbloke If it's the last bit of cardboard you have left, it must be Boxtail soup.
