  1. I always laugh when I see the word mangelwurzel! It reminds me of the TV programme about the scarecrow Wurzel Gummidge! I look forward to seeing how you get on with those! They are related to turnip or swede aren't they?

  2. Ha! Matron
    The MagelWurzels are in the same family as Beetroot and Silverbeet/Chard.

  3. That sounds like an awful lot of food, I hope you are hungry.

  4. Hi Charles
    It does look like a lot written out like that but we seem to be able to eat it all...that is when if it all grows well.
    The different varieties allow for a spread of maturity and a few failures.
    BTW I'm still working on that list you were after, I am getting there slowly!

  5. Did you get Excel list of my seeds and plants?
    And certainly don't rush I had a few spare evenings and got mine done but I don't expect it to be a priority for you with all you have going there.

  6. Yes I did thanks Charles and it gave me some ideas of what to include on such a list.
