    oh wow, that looks great

    i noticed a second lot of it growing in our garden yesterday so picked a few leaves for my lot. the piggies seem to love it, and bisc does like it but struggles with the texture of the leaves unfortunately. he does better with the stem though.

    i need to get around to ordering some soil and seeds and get started!

    I got mine from the hay experts, I did start one tray off straight outside and the other in the greenhouse so one lot is a tiny bit smaller!
