Re: Early Winter Bits and Bobs.

This afternoon's National One rugby match was strang. From the bar I volunteer to run we could just see players at the halfway line, we're twenty foot behind one dead all line offset slightly from the posts.

I can't think of much that's edible that will like their feet wet in winter, will rice grow in your neck of the woods?
