Re: Nope, I still hate peas!

Here is one of my pea pods. It's the first time I've grown them so am feeling especially proud. This variety is Little Marvel and is delicious straight from the pod.

Re: what can I grow really quickly for school garden

Re: Moved from England to Scotland

You WILL love it Andy. I've moved up there twice now and I would go again like a shot if the opportunity arose. What Cassiepod (hello you x) says is so true - I am hating every minute of being down here in Manchester. It's smelly, it's noisy, there are too many cars (I've not driven since I moved ba...
