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

Kale Seedlings

Posted: 13/11/2014 at 16:22

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 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 !!

Well it might !!
