Ah I see. (Useful to know if I ever get around to planting my fig tree that's been stuck in a small pot on the allotment for a few years and mostly ignored. I need to create a sun-trap for it!)

Sorry don't know much about figs. Will they ripen next year - what's that 2 yr thing with figs? (Eaten few fresh figs before but happened to have had some ripe ones today from my sister's tree! Delicious.)

I pulled up one of my cucamelon plants yesterday & found 8 tubers - a record for me! These can be overwintered like a dahlia tuber. Dig them carefully (they break easily) & store in slightly moist potting mix in a cool spot that doesn’t freeze.

Water-plantain which has grown from seed buried in the mud in April 1966 (when the old Beck was re-routed) and uncovered last year when we created a series of ponds at Six Fields, Hartburn.

Visited the very traditional vegetable plot of an expert gardener in my Mum's village and came away with a bunch of his glowing dahlias....

Up in the Wolds the FAVA BEAN harvest is underway🌱All our organic beans are grown here for us by Mike Stringer. He sent these pictures over saying; “It’s the usual balancing act growing beans 800 feet above sea level in Yorkshire” Good luck Mike!

Sounds very likely! I thought I'd just try various recommended herbs now. Some Plantago major this morning. And keep trying to figure out what sets me off!
