Ok folks. I'm gonna try something new out here.
A little collection of garden related stories that caught my interest this week.
Some funny, some serious, but most should be of interest to gardeners.

Man to sail from North Wales to the Isle of Man — in a giant pumpkin!

Genetically modified potato wins approval for cultivation in the European Union.

Plant growers see exports rise 15% in two years.

Home-grown carrots 'cost £1 each'


I'll try this once a week for a few weeks, and see how it works out.
Leave a comment below if you found any of them interesting. Smile
