Thanks again for the recommendation. I picked up a copy of the old edition from a second-hand bookshop in town yesterday for 99p :)

Re: Whether to keep Quails

Hello ktibble, I see that you are a fellow Oxonian! We are getting quails just after the first week of august and are very excited.

Re: Hello from Witney in Oxfordshire

Thanks Poochy Pie :)

I've just been looking at a thread on here about ramsons (wild garlic). We have a shady spot which could do with some brightening up with some tasty greens so I guess I have got something already from the forum :)
