Your bit about your lupins reminded me of the Monty Python sketch - a spoof on Robin Hood but he was called Dennis Moore (!) When he stole from the rich, instead of saying 'your money or your life', he said 'your life or your lupins'. I always think of it whenever I hear lupins mentioned
My OH often complains that they never repeat that one, I only vaguely remember it.
He thinks it was a highwaymen who stole the lupins then took them to the poor who complained "All he ever bring us is lupins, never anything useful like money, oh no, only lupins; the house is full of them" Then off he'd gallop to get some more!
If he turned up in our garden just now he provide ample for the poor!!
