Sometimes Janis brings such “terrible” thing as crab sticks… which doesn’t have crab in it at all! But… when he did, I’m happy to make a bowl of salad or eat it “terribly” unhealthy on bred with mayonnaise :). Don’t say anything… I know… I know πŸ™‚

  1. I’m β€˜liking’ this because of what you said about crab sticks – I don’t think I could eat them. Here it would seem strange to eat such a salad, even with real crab. Yorkshire cosst crabs are famous and very good.

        1. πŸ™‚ strange indeed! But please keep us updated. Will you grow them from seeds? Where are you buying the seeds. And maybe you have tomato seeds that are “old style” – can grow from tomato every year.


          1. New sees will normally be from the garden centre, we have a friend who manages one so we can get most things even if they are not normally on the shelf. Tomatoes, chillies, corn, oats, potatoes, in fact anything that we can take seed from we collect from our harvest. We may have some old varieties of tomatoes, but the real secret to a good tomatoes is to grow it our doors. What are you summers like, I imagine they are much like Poland’s?

            1. I guess they are like Poland’s but a bit colder. Our spring is very cold and summer come later than in Poland. I remember how we drive to Berlin through Poland in May 20 and it was all green while in Latvia first buds came out :). You can’t grow tomato or pumpkin from harvest! Now the seeds are “made” for “harvest” not “to continue”. I’m looking for old tomato seeds, that will be “for continue growing” like my grandmother did! Also the same with pumpkin. I know it’s easier to by seeds every year πŸ™‚ I want “my own” πŸ™‚

              1. Not too different I don’t think, we don’t plant anything our until after the 14th May, but we start our tomato plants from seed indoors in February. I can send you some of our plum tomato seeds if you would like? We started to harvest this year at the end of July and picked over 250kg πŸ™‚
