Very random question

A very random question that just came into my mind - if you use the water that you boiled veg in to water your veg plants with, will it be good/bad/indifferent?! I almost feel stupid for asking!!

    Get a steamer and you won't have to worry.:rotfl:
    I'd rather be an Optimist and be proved wrong than a Pessimist and be proved right.

    If you don't salt the veg, it's excellent... mind you, it does need to cool first! :p

    Last house I had, I plumbed in a double kitchen sink, so the two halves were draining individually. RHS went drainwards for all the washing up water, muck & yuck. LHS went straight out to a waterbutt. Veg peeling water, boiled veg water, coffee and tea, that all went thataway, and the garden looked great!

    It's nothing short of criminal, feeding the boiled remains of plants to other plants. Whatever next? Animal droppings? :(

    Like Prince Charles, I speak to my plants, and they tell me they'd much rather have a nice inert pile of Growmore any day of the week than the cooked remains of Aunt Cabbage or Uncle Carrot. :p

    I'm stopping short of Godwin's Law, but what you are all suggesting here isn't far off what that fiend, Bob Flowerdew, has been doing behind those old tyres and redundant freezers all these years. It makes me ill to think of it! :eek::eek::eek:

    Vegetable rights and Peace! :D
