Free Cycling Jacket
A few weeks ago I subscribed to Mountain Bike Rider magazine. I could pretend that it was for the pull-out route maps; the skills advice; the workshop articles… but to be honest, there are two reasons for me subscribing:
- 10% off the cover price.
- A FREE Altura Nevis cycling jacket.
The jacket’s last year’s model I believe, but it’s a cracking windstopper, and waterproof too. The reflective bits on the front (as you can see here) and on the bumflap will be helpful and this used to retail at more than £50. It cost me less than hat to subscribe to a magazine I was going to buy anyway, so I’m a winner! Hurrah for me.

While I’m on a cheapo tip, look at these babies:
Regular readers will know about my £7-greenhouse-£25-base exploits. Well, this propagator is full of seeds we dried out from actual cherry tomatoes, stolen from a salad. They’re growing, actually growing and everything, which is cool.
They should be ready for transplanting outside before too long, then later in the summer we can have lots and lots of cherry tomatoes. Salads; sauces; pizza; barbecues; soups… I’m going to be heartily sick of cherry toms by autumn but it’s pretty cool for the kids to witness.
Next year I think I should try to grow amusing-shaped vegetables. Any ideas what’s good to grow?
