    That took some thinking about, will have to have a cup of tea now!

  7. Count me in for the giveaway please, what a great prize.

    My Favourite Vegetable - Parsnip. A Sunday dinner isn't a Sunday dinner without a parsnip on the plate.

    My Favourite Fruit - Strawberry. I'm definitely getting some everbearers for next year, the strawberry season is just too short without them.

    My Favourite Herb - Chives. So easy to grow and adds that something extra to a cheese sandwich as well as providing pretty flowers which the bees love.

    My Favourite Flower - Fuchsia. I like the very understated varieties such as Hawkshead best.

    My Favourite Gardening Tool - Secateurs. I was lucky enough to find a pair of Felcos in the Wilkinson's sale for £10 and I love them. I think I use them every time I visit the allotment for one job or another.

    Good luck in the giveaway everyone.
