Well I have taken notice of the milk scares.  I drink lots of gold top. I remember reading that We need to watch our cholesterol levels so have upped my intake of gold top.

mankind has always been the guinea pig ......we simply dont know what we can be sure about.  Our food generally is atrocious because it is chemically sprayed, treated with additives that probably are harming us every day and that guy in Dad's Army said....we are all doomed  

look, we have no choice but to simply get on with whatever we have without analysing everything.......

9cm plant - how to deal with it

Posted: 19/05/2015 at 19:29

I can get all sorts of ferns at least 4 times that 9cm pot.  Yes, those fronds...almost tempted to say that frond......will unfurl but the root wont.  Its a shockingly small almost insulting specimen.

Yes Runny.  I'm aware you like your food. you and me eating somewhere would mean nothing left for others.......hmmm!  Like it 

Hey!   So that's where my hat went! 

Fairy...I do eat other things beside donuts like......buns, jaffa cakes, toblerones, nelson slices, know, all the good elfy stuff . Mind you I do consume a lot of food.  So far I seem to burn it off.  I eat lots of good food but its the add ons.  I eat when I'm stressed, when I'm happy, when I'm sad, when I'm busy and when I'm asleep.

Grew cqpe gooseberries for a year or two.  Not hardy though.  

Josta, wineberry?  I think there are lots of hybrid fruits around now but whether they are worthwhile I don't know.  

bumping this up ...there is sure to be someone growing them
