Nothing to understand Marge, it's just twenty two over paid Prima Donna's kicking a bag of wind around a field.
Taddy that is the sum total of my knowledge of this game....so as you can see it would never provoke any kind of stimulating discussion.

Aren't they both green?

Only one for me would be the one that doesn't try to talk with her mouth full!

Re: something wrong.

Taddy, you are a tease. My mouth is watering at the thought of that fresh fruit and vegetables. Not like the stuff in the shops here – vegetables fed with whatever to make them grow big and fast but leaving the flavour behind. Stored for months in cold rooms before appearing on the supermarket shelves.

I am envious of your ability to grow these delights. I can’t say this posting is from one gardener to another as the only time I would have a green thumb is if I dipped in into a pot of paint. It took me nine years to grow mint, planting often– and then when I finally had success and it was doing well it took me 2 years to destroy it.

You couldn’t make the first one look nice....you can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.
It might make a difference if the Lass broke into a smile now and then...but all she seems to do is scowl......she is two scoops of grumpy with snot topping!

Just to tease you a bit more, I forgot to mention that I also Have a bed of mint that I harvest and hang in my garage untill completly dry then strip the leaves off and put them in a chopper upperer and bottle/jar them so I can spinkle them on boiled/mashed tatties. Mrs Taddy can't stand the taste of mint though, (neer mind, more for me).

Re: something wrong.

I said that I could not grow anything...but I forgot...someone bought me a Kolanchoe plant(I only know that it is called that because it had a label on it telling me that was what it was) for Christmas.
i commented that I thought it might just make it into the New Year.
Guess what...It is still with me....no flowers on it now...and it has almost died three times(for lack of water)....but if it carries on, it might see its first birthday.

Re: something wrong.

Taddy, I did have success with parsley some years ago. I planted this one year and over the following years parsley grew and grew everywhere until I felt like I lived in Parsley Palace. It came up in places I wanted it and places I didn’t. Different varieties as well. I had a garden bed that it was supposed to stay in but it travelled. I gave so much away, but the more I took the more it grew. I did what you did with the mint, I dried it – found that this was done very successfully in oven and microwave. Then one year it had all gone never to return. Disappeared. My husband said I had done something to it – but I don’t know what. Maybe I had pulled too much up from the roots. I don’t know. Anyway that was the end of that success story.
