I sprinkled a bit of lime on my cabbage patch, still eating them now and lots in the freezer.

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

I have this one but will it get made up this year. It will need 3ft stakes to keep it stable, they do rock in the wind


I think I am pretty much ready for the compost to go on, hopefully crack it by next weekend.

There is a lot of greenhouse work bug that can be done anytime.

A doctor told me that its no use taking vitamin c without zinc, the body wont absorb it, so I take a multi vitamin that contains zinc, never had a cold nor OH either and he used to get some stinkers.

Anyone else heard of that?

Anything on your Wish List?

I dont have a variagated one. Mine are light or dark blue. The light blue has reddish leaves. 

How short lived are they Verdun, I have pulled lots of bits off and replanted so I suppose thats the best thing to do.
