Re: What crops do you keep for the seeds?

I always keep seeds from tomato (as long as it's not a hybrid), beans, peas and not forgetting the dark sunflowers which alwas seem to come true to last year's colours.

adding a video

How do I add a video (of my plants) to my post, please? Tried the usual way of adding pics but the site won't accept a video. It plays on Facebook and Messenger but not here.

.....bumping into Charlie Dimmock at our local InExcess yesterday morning. She was buying plants (not surprising). 10 minuites earlier and I could have seen what she'd chosen. I wonder if she's filming locally?

Re: pain in the thumb

Thank you all for your excellent advice. Much appreciated. I will go to the pharmacy tomorrow and see what they suggest. I don't want to give up my crochet so I'm very anxious to get sorted out.

pain in the thumb

I've been getting a bad pain in my right thumb - making it difficulty to hold the trowels and dibbers etc. and was thinking I need a thumb splint or something.
