Re: Funny old weather

Not complaining about lack of rain (yet) - but the heat! Above 25 degree C - that's just not natural...

Re: First home grown lunch of the year

Sounds lovely... :) I've been having purple sprouting broccoli for longer than I enjoy now, and that's what I'll have today, again. Must be coming to an end soon! And I still have beetroot leaf, in my salads as well as cooked, from last year's beetroot. And my now three year old rocket, chives and y...

Re: Brits banned from overseas hotels...
