This is the 7th year gardening an we still have everything to learn. It's just Nature at its best and some luck, rather than skill or knowledge :-)

:-) It's great @hayleyaj great way to get all you'd never otherwise have :-) We swap Rubbarb in crumbles, potatoes, kale Litterally everything that's grown gets the offer and all manner of stuff comes back the other way :-) It's "The good life" :-)

@fcmp @latebloomer so do we on all fronts. Chicken sit, bunny sit, they look after our garden. When I had a major op in April and couldn't move very far, they bought casseroles and flowers!! 👍👍😃😃👏👏❤️

Good to hear @latebloomer not had a chicken yet though :-D Still time :-) It's definitely going to make for a happier, healthier and more connected future :-)

@Keely just keep giving an at least their kids will see an learn how to act right and you never know one day they might just surprise you :-) Great to hear @hayleyaj not about the opp obviously and Hope you've recovered fully :-) but that your neighbours are stand up people with good morals :-)

Hi 😊 Hope your back is feeling better and you're on the mend. I think I'm thinking along the same lines as @susanhumphrey333 with Freesia?

@fcmp, I broke two bones in my back about 15yrs ago (L2 & L3). Took foreverrrr to heal and the only thing I have found that really works, is to hang upside down by my feet. That horse won the battle, but I won the war, he got sold. Lol

Ditto @sikoma done a few bones all over unfortunately over the years. Had a disc shaved few years ago that didn't help after popping it, but unfortunately spines twisted, neck and shoulders an pelvis just drop out randomly :-S :-D One day it'll be right I've heard about the upside down before thank you for the info :-) fair doo's on the horse :-D
