I'm looking to call in some favours. This lady with terminal cancer has had her book, her dream, rejected by a publisher due to low social media reach. Can we get her numbers up, please? Some of you have massive followings. Any publishers meanwhile, you may want to reach out.

Corncockle has been associated with European agriculture for at least 4000 years. Harvested grains were often contaminated with the seeds of this poisonous annual. However, wheat plants grown in its presence have been shown to grow larger than those grown in its absence.

I shall call this leaf underside that just dropped on me: never despair. First you look and it’s covered in aphids. Then, do you spot the shiny golden, swollen aphid? That’s been parasitised by a wasp. Then if you check closely you can see 3 little ‘worms’: tiny hoverfly larvae!

I puzzled over those - but then gathered that blue and blue and yellow mountain pansies were found in Upper Teesdale but usually yellow elsewhere.

More chickpea experiments - promising trials have given me license to experiment with imported pulses 😂 Thing that’s most pleasing about this was the carrot top pesto where I used roasted fava instead of nuts.

We were off-piste & came across this extraordinary colony of Bath asparagus; never seen its like before. Many plants had bees in attendance. Also wild liquorice with deadly nightshade close by, neither particularly common.

Yellow flowers on left hand side beneath the apple tree must be the French scorzonera flowering away. Pleased to see that.

At what point does “oh let’s plant a few garlic because the deer won’t eat them” to an obsession?
