Cambridge Favourite has a good flavour and fruits mid-season.  I've found 'Alice' to fruit well and have a good flavour, it's a bit later than Cambridge Favourite so would extend the season.

Lots here

I've been very pleased with what I've bought from Ken Muir - very good service.

Have fun

Composting in the tropics

Is composting even necessary in the tropics? I think pretty much everything would rot very fast in this climate. 

But properly made compost isn't just a load of rotten vegetable matter - it would be wet and slimy and horrible if that was the case.

Sorry Bob, don't want to be awkward, but beetroot is not related to the brassica family at all.

Thought on push mowers?

Posted: Yesterday at 14:23

Push mowers were great when there was someone in the village who knew how to keep the blades razor sharp - but that generation has gone and there's no one about to do it any more - not even the travelling Romany family who used to visit our village right up until the mid 1980s, selling handmade lace and sharpening shears, knives, scythes, mowers, scissors etc.

If a push mower isn't kept razor sharp it is very tiring to use.
