Hi Edd

No flowers

If you imagine a circle of a series of umbrella spikes 1/2 inch wide sticking out every 3 inches up a stem like a pagoda

My neighbour has some plants in here garden that have umbrella like spikes that stick out in a circle at right angles to the stem

The plant is light green

When she touched them some white sap was produced which irrated her skin for a couple of weeks

I have just spotted a couple in my garden

I dont have a camera

? Any thoughts Friends

Kale Seedlings

Just potted them all up and there is a small  difference in the leaf shape between 6 of the 13 so that may give me a clue to what is growing

There were obviously seeds in the bag of compost I got from the GC

Its very exciting waiting to see what comes from the other 7

Just had a thought....do kale seeds produce more than one seedling ?

If they do that may explain why I have 13 seedlings from 6 seeds

So fed up with all this rain!!!!

I took my son to the IOW as he loved fossils and he interogated the poor chap who had spent 3 years cleaning the same  fossil !!

Help someone else who suffers from seasickness and it will make you feel better !!

If your garden / plot is big enough you can plan a pond or design a raised bed or learn about rotation or follow on planting or "dealing with clay soil "

After 3 seasons on my allotement I now know that I dont know what I dont know !!

In other words Nature is amazing and very very challenging 

The local vicar was looking over the fence at the garden of a new arrival who had at last tamed his garden

"Look how well Gods Garden is looking today " to which the chap said " Yes Vicar  but you should have seen it when he had it on his own " 

No offence meant
