Fruitcake , always nice to see a picture ?

last year somebody put a post on about Cape Gooseburys and I saved the details on my iPad , bit of a coincidence I thought , as I fancied having a go , always like to try something different each year

Ginagibbs , I to had a problem with cats using my Garden as a tiolet , friend suggested using Teasal and it worked , holly leaves should have same effect 

Did suggest to O/H about getting our own cat but as she doesn't really like them so that was vetoed 

Watched the Allottment challange last night , wish I could grow Cauliflowers like those , can't be good at everything , enjoyed the show
