Re: Onions

Good grief - a dearth of growers, where is the ish mindset! Mind I wish my veg would get their act together and catch up with the season. They are growing and I'm still waiting. 'twas the snow at Easter what stopped things.

Re: Compost worms

Yep that looks somewhat familiar. At least we have more rain than you but at the moment - I'll join you in places on the newer plot looking like that and short of worms and other life.

Re: Sharpe's Express

You are supposed to plant crops in different beds each year to stop the build up of diseases.

Re: If you could...would you private jet everywhere?

Nope. By the time you get to the airport (and back from it) as a non driver it's a total waste of time and energy. Flying is something you do for a living (armed forces, air crew) or purely for pleasure (gliding, paragliding, microlight) not as a reason to go anywhere.

Re: Intelligent plants?

Cucumbers usually manage to confer as to whether to grow or die each year. And my runner beans usually manage to avoid the bean poles no matter what instructions I follow without a lot of persuasion.

Only winding up up Tony - only winding you up. :mrgreen: :lol: :lol:

I'm on a boring job of tracking down email addresses to one I'm going to destroy so need some entertainment other than that. I'll go away and be good and stop picking on you.

Re: Spanish Roses

That's a hard one. A specialist rose grower might help you if you can track one down.

You didn't say that Sir. :dontknow:

So I presume that dandelions and docks are out too then - both of those can be eaten when young as can nettles. :dontknow:

Ground elder - bought over by the Romans as a diuretic.
