Edd that's a lovely idea! But I fear my partner has "issues" eating home grown food at the best of time I can't see him being too impressed seeing me pull something from the patio cracks!
I'll have a look out for them Fidget. I'm sure I've a couple of packets here to get me started.
My two compost bins have arrived (I was starting to doubt I had ordered them) so weather / health willing I shall be cracking on with that project for the garden this weekend. I've now three new compost bins to install (going to level the area with rubble that's currently in / on the vegetable garden), two old wooden bins to empty and dismantle (they're very very rotten and up against the hedge which is doing it no favours I'm sure), and then to decide how best to screen them from the garden (daleks are never the prettiest). I'm thinking about some removable trellis to grant emptying space come "harvesting" time but screen it the rest and perhaps some climbing plants in pots like sweet peas or even just broad beans. That said the likes of sweetpeas wouldn't even need to be in a pot once the bins are in place we wont be emptying them for a season or three so plenty of time for the plant to grow around the trellis, flourish, and then die back ready for us to gain access.
