Oh hello again .... hope you've had a good spring and summer 

I didn't go to the show but posts at the time revealed it to be what I would expect, a marketing opportunity for businesses involved in garden design etc.  That's what pays the bills.  There's no money to be made in proper gardening at a show like that.

I love stuffed marrow - sometimes I stuff them with a sort of Cottage Pie mix of minced beef, onion and grated carrot, bound together with some breadcrumbs and herbs.  Sometimes I use a mix of minced lamb with a Middle Eastern spicing -delicious, especially with a sauce made of roasted home grown toms, garlic, oregano and basil

Nut - you remember my Echium?  I've found a couple of spikes that had got hidden in a rosebush and therefore escaped my enthusiastic 'tidying' session - seeds look as if they'll be ready soon - I'll put some by for you 

I've sent you a PM

I just have a jar of pickling vinegar waiting in the kitchen and as the seeds develop to the size of small peas I pick them and pop them in
