Re: comfrey in ground or pot?

Not sure what type I have but it's under the buddlea so quite well shaded. I cut it right down to the ground before it flowers and, so ,far, it hasn't spread.

Re: Solitaire

Not a game but I'm totally addicted to Zentangling. You do need a pen and something to draw on. I keep a little collection of old business cards with me and zentangle on the back when I need a quick pick me up.

Re: Bloody dock...

WOT ?? The best bit, and the skin on custard, and the skin on rice pudding, and the skin on milky bedtime drinks, and the skin on roast pork. What's that got to do with dock leaves though ? How could you do this to me? :( I'm just getting used to being dairy free and you remind me about the delight...

Re: Food allergies

Just an update. I've been keeping a food diary now and have proved that I'm seriously allergic to chocolate - I'm gutted :( I had another 'funny turn' after eating a dairy free chocolate dessert so there's no doubt now. I've been in touch with the Allergyuk forum and they've confirmed that the sympt...

Re: Where is everyone?New post section perhaps?

I've also been having problems with the iPad. I now tend to lurk anonymously unless I feel I have something useful to add in which case I either get the mac out or gaff about logging in all the time. Most of the time I don't have anything useful to add.

Re: what to do with myself and my land...

Hi, not sure if you live in the right climate, but what about something in the blueberry or cranberry family? They love wet soils. Alternatively, I have a feeling that's I read somewhere that there's a shortage of willow for weaving - but don't take my word for it, I might have dreamt that.

Re: Where is everyone?New post section perhaps?

Sorry, have been sadly absent. Got lured into taking a permanent job which just takes up too much of my time. But without the job I can't afford to keep the garden so work it is.

Re: A 110 million lottery win

I know exactly what I'd do. I'd set up a not for profit business buying up empty, unloved properties. The sort that are too difficult or expensive for a commercial organisation to repair. Then renovate them and either sell or rent. The aim would be to cover costs. Without the need to recompense shar...
