Re: tomato style berries on potato plants

Lol yes thats true. he has eaten the leaves of the plants quite alot and seems to really like them (one plant was reduced to stems a while back). dont think i'll risk it with the berries though.

Thank you so much for your advice.

Re: tomato style berries on potato plants

Thank you for your response. They are rooster potatoes. Never seen these berries before but have heard about them.

tomato style berries on potato plants

I found these beries where the flowers are on my plants. they are poisonous aren't they? is this to animals as well as they are dangling low down and i have a rabbit that could reach. Will the potatoes still be ok to eat and does this mean they are ready for harvesting? sorry about all the questions...

Hi, Thanks for your reply. I thought it might be too late to get anything from it but will try it in the greenhouse.

Re: Little white maggots among the strawberry roots.

I know this is an older subject but I had these on one of my strawberry plants. I removed all the little blighters and replanted the plant. It looked like it was going to die but is now thriving.

gluts

I have alot of courgettes at the moment and also pak choi.
Any ideas what can be done with them? I always use courgette in pasta, it would be nice to use it some other ways.
Does anyone know if you can preserve the pak choi?

Thanks

Re: Radish ponderings

I've eaten my first pods this year and they are very nice. I've heard they are good in curries.
I've only eaten the baby leaves added to a salad, didnt like the taste of the bigger ones.
You can also eat turnip leaves and beatroot too can't you?

strawberry plants

This is the first time I have potted plants from the runners. Some are looking a bit wilted, is that normal? Is there anything I need to do to help them survive the winter? The ones in the ground look healthy. I have cut some from the parent plant but not all.

Re: Aniseed scented plant

I have found fennel. There is lots of it at an area where I usually pick blackberrys. I am glad I came across this thread as I didnt know what to do with it. Thank you.

Re: My first foraging attempt

Maybe what i found was sloes then as they tasted really really horrible, definately not something I would want to eat raw.
There was another tree nearby though and the fruit was a little different and tasted sour but bearable, i think i have a mix of the 2 but i'm sure that wont matter.

Re: My first foraging attempt

Hi, well done on the foraging. I am fairly new to this as well and I also went out and picked sloes for the first time today, they look like the same ones I picked. I dont really much about the rosehips. The last red berry in the pictures looks like hawthorn. They are edible but dont taste of much, ...

Re: Are these sloes?

I went back and picked some sloes or whatever they are. They are small and round with a big stone in the middle. I tasted one and it was very very sour. There are alot of the trees there, it looked like they were on bush but it was infact a tree thats gone a bit wild. I also picked some blackberries...
