Fancy trying something a little different?
« on: August 09, 2016, 11:01:24 AM »
On my wanderings around the Internet, I came across this site which caught my attention at:

http://www.incrediblevegetables.co.uk/

It's run by Mandy Barber (from your neck of the woods I think Tommo). I found the things she grows to be quite intriguing, and definitely a change from the norm. Check it out and see what you think. Certainly a good place to get new ideas for unusual veg.

So long as your Oca is still in good condition get it planted now it should crop just fine!

Nice one, Gee


Ashburton is only about 25 miles from us. I'll have a look at their shop later

Apparently Spuds is thinking of paying a visit too. She'll have a whole posse of Shed bandits down there!!!

If you do go down, take her a handful of APS beans Tommo - I've already told her that you are the keeper of the pure bred core stock! In fact I'll send you a copy of the e-mail I sent to her (although I don't know if she's read it - I haven't received a reply yet).
