saving veg seed

Beans are easy to save. Carrots and parsnips would take up the ground for two years so no worth it.

The holes that carnivorous snails bore are indeed very round, and made by  rasping.

I was just going to say that Steve. Carnivorous Molluscs who bore holes in grazing molluscs are quite common in a marine environment. I've never seen it on land though.

A stipa gigantea has had three years and still not flowered. Time to dig it out I think, and replace with something different.

I picked the last of the blackcurrants yesterday and made blackcurrant curd last night. Not an evening for standing over a bowl over a pan of boiling water. Hugh ferney watsit  says simmer for at least 10 minutes to thicken. An hour and a half later.... I'm still stirring, it's slowly getting to 82c and the foxes are arguing on the lawn over meaty chunks. Sounded like a load of kids arguing in the playground.  His 5 small jars turned into three and a half medium  jars, but it didn't curdle and most important, it tastes great.
