Re: Flower? Veg? ID please...

Looks like Huckleberry which also looks like nightshade! I wouldn't risk eating the black berries!

Re: what are med' dwellers sowing now?

Hello Dina :wave: Summer veg depends when your last frost date is and how warm and light you can keep your seedlings, I start my chillies and aubergines Dec-Jan and tomatoes in Feb in my heated greenhouse.
Veg like broad beans, lettuce, garlic, carrots, chard, kale can be in the ground now.

Re: brewing equipment in spain??

Where abouts are you? There's a great little wine making supplies shop in Cadiar which is 30 mins drive from where I live, they also sell homemade local wine and vermouth. They don't have a website.

Re: Sprouting seeds and pulses

We do a lot of sprouting, must say that green lentils are my favorite, they taste a bit like like raw peas, good luck with the sprouting :icon_smile:

Re: Pickled runner beans.......

Has anyone got any ideas about how to preserve them sliced in jars without pickling (too much pickle in our house!)

Re: Cut flowers

Calla lilies are great as cut flowers, last a long time too, you can get different colours other than white. I would also go for dahlias, easy to grow with lots of flowers to cut.

The other half make us a chestnut loaf for our Christmas dinner, we make sure we gather enough chestnuts this time of year to do us over Christmas.
