Thanks All


Good move Verdun

Lyn looks as if you were right 

It's hard though - behaving myself, it includes no gardening


Hugs to all those who need it, positive thought do help, even just a little bit, so sending them to everyone

Hello All

Just checking in. Managed to walk around road unescorted today, came back and slept.

We use Pure Soya all the time, Stork for baking (now seems to be dairy free) Son2 had a dairy allergy so have used it for years. As for flavour - well it can be added!

Back soon

Mine is still going strong

A word of warning though - SLUGS AND SNAILS - it is one of the few plants I 'seed' almost before it emerges from the soil in spring, but once the leaves are mature it is left alone.

As for the flowers, they are held on tall stems above lower leaves so i'm sure you will see them but don't expect too much in the first year

Good luck

When we moved here we seriously looked into having them.

Did the math, took into account our age and decided to not have them.

NDN but 1 have them, and as their whole roof is covered in them looks a bit of an eyesore but their heating bills are low - lot younger than OH and me!

I was going to garden this morning - before rain - and bake this afternoon.

Rain beat me to it
