    I was in the man-shed earlier and in the ever present battle to clear some space, I rediscovered this Chinese knock-off wood gasifier stove that I picked up over on BCUK's Gift it On thread and a new MSR Stowaway pot that I bought for it.

    Well, the Stowaway certainly did it's job as it's remained hidden and unused for months and it's likely to remain that way, so I thought I'd offer it up in a silly comp for anyone that fancy playing with it.

    Between now and next Tuesday, how many broad beans and red onions will have germinated on my allotment and will be showing their heads to be counted on the 28th November?

    To make it sensible, it's likely to be a number between about 20 and 100.

    Nearest one on the 28th gets a decent stainless steel pot and an cheap Chinese knock off stove. :D

    It's truly a pity we don't have the BB Secret Santa for you to get your teeth into, relearn old skills, repeatedly hit yourself in the face while remaining internally calm and zen-like in your forum persona.

    I'm off to BCUK to post a heads up about this excellent and generous comp, they'll flock in, thank you again. :P:nod:

    Sorry Kev, I totally took your comment to mean that they had unfeasibly large expectations of sprouting things :shucks:
    Never gave a thought about the blooming listing :palm:

    I'll do better next time :D

    As temped as I am to muck up the list, I'll restrain myself and just laugh.

    Thanks for the comp beachlover but I already have those :)

    I guess my need for order wins me the OCD place in the Christmas hymns thread. :D

    What is this "ordered" of which you speak, Grasshopper? :D

    That's no fun at all, Kev.:roll:
