Bit of a dissapointment after all that effort. I think there is £3s worth of seed bulbs there and was hoping they would get quite big but just didnt happen. Oh well i'm going to make one of those hangy braidy things when i've dried them properly

Ours are small also. But still delicious. Huge onions, fat courgettes and too much salad!

Steve, that is not your bad care or low quality of bulbs you bought. It is just you do not live 700 km more to the south.

Yes very true, I guess its just this years conditions.
Lulu, yes the onions here did very well.

How are your blueberries!!? Mine are blueing nicely.

Lulu, sorry for this. I am physician who is interested in history and according to many sources some of the people who were accused to be vampires in the past, in fact suffered from a form of porphyria (they have got blisters on skin when exposed to the sun, that is why they left houses only in darkness, had red colouring of teeth and garlic contain substances, which could cause harm to them). So far, you will find more on internet.

But nothing against Steve´s garlic!!!

Oh my Blueberries were had about 2 weeks ago now, very early and ripened quickly. There are a few slower still on the bush but they are ripe now as well : )

Hi Katarina, yes porphyria, The English (german) Royals had it!!

Not only royals, I am sure. Lol.
