Thank you Verdun

Salino, I am not very fond of red; my red tubes of paint are all pretty ancient as they very rarely get used I love orange/apricot and though I don't much like purple shades, they seem to work well in the garden.

reb4, if you have a glut of radishes - slice and use them in a stir fry; they lose the fiery quality, but have the texture of water chestnuts.

Salino, I'm in the Fens too; Norfolk /Cambs border! So we have similar weather to contend with. Verdun suggests taking cuttings to keep favourite varieties.

Verdun, I can't find Joyce Grenfell plants anywhere. Any suggestions?

I have never seen so many bumble bees as this year, they love the delphiniums.

reb4, I agree with you; and have been using the radish leaves in the juicer and some that flowered are in a vase in the kitchen. Also made radish soup from the big white radishes and their leaves, it tastes like the best pea soup

Thanks Verdun, I like the idea of a Joyce Grenfell plant; I used to love her performances.
