We've probably messed up their marketing survey. Only available through twitter is a measure of how many are reading their twitterfeed. I suspect more are reading the forum.

Once himself had got over the colour, he commented that the yellow ones and orange ones were very sweet. Today he said they tasted like supermarket toms. That was because I stripped the plants last week and they had finished ripening in the kitchen.

You must incinerate on site. It is illegal to transport jk to the tip, as it just spreads it.

So long as it is eradicated, I don't see what the problem is. Just cutting it down and selling the house in winter, so the new owners have a nasty surprise in Spring, would be a problem if you don't tell them.

A long lance to wave over the fence would be useful, but as it goes down into the roots, concentrate on stopping it spreading. Anyway, haven't they already said that land is yours, then so is the fence. Ask the tenants if you can go round to spray it.

Spray it with glyphosate. Let it go brown, cut out stems and burn on site in an incinerator. It will probably regrow in which case repeat every time it pops up..
