Favourite vegetable to grow?

Posted: 15/03/2014 at 20:09

I can't decide; I agree with the above about carrots, but then there are tomatoes with their lovely scent straight from the garden, and huge bunches of spinach steamed for just 3 or 4 minutes till it is meltingly edible, the leeks that I am harvesting at the moment, or the chard or the purple sprouting brocolli that I had today.... Yes you are a meany to just ask for one

Nut, I have never EVER been able to find anything on the forum search except 'forum search' That is why I keep bumping this thread

Lizzie, way back when (about a year ago) we all used to get emails when a thread we were interested in had a post; sadly that no longer happens, I have queried it with the people who run the site so many times and they keep promising that it will happen again, but it never does.

Tracey-N, I believe that one should never dis-respect another person's culture. I like the fact that this thread represents a huge range of tastes.

Flora, this forum, as far as I understand it is conversations about gardening techniques, a few jokes (especially about cake) but it is also a place where people ask for advice and get it. I don't expect most gardeners have the time to read long accounts of what other people are doing....We are too busy gardening

Sweet pea 2, I am rather puzzled by your response; if a type of music, or a band really annoys you, then it means that it has had an effect, which is all any musician or artist requires to feel validated. But I'm not entirely sure that is what you meant.

Is zzzzz what you really meant to say?

Nut, I haven't seen a slow worm since I was about 12, how wonderful to have rescued them, how and why; we need to know

Thank you nod, what they don't tell you is that the life of a lavender is really only about 6 to 8  years; that is when commercial growers replace them, though this info does come from a novel by Dickens, but ALSO my own experience of having a 40' long lavender hedge.
