COMFREY

I've put it in the compost and it hasn't spread, it just rotted down. My comfrey bed is next to a lawn and mowing controls it.

My Lily of the Valley is just coming out. I have a sprig in flower on the kitchen table. The French give it to each other for good luck too. Once sellers used to sell it in laybys along the roads. Never seem to see them now, but today I haven't been out as I've been gardening.

Is "the Low" the one I met Dove in? It was lovely, with nooky drinking areas and beer in barrels in the tap room. We had sandwiches in chunky bread with lots of filling. Has it changed hands since?

I think we sang Dove's song at school, I know we sang something but I thought maybe it had nonny no in it.

My husband used to go out with an air rifle at 6am when we lived in Kent. He gave be John Seymour's book on self-sufficiency so I could learn to prepare rabbits for cooking. Unfortunately there were fleas pinging about on the work surface when I tried!

I like Dove's suggestion, but you could get one of these.
