The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

You've reminded me Tiger, I need to get sowing with my leeks. I still have quite a few to clear and eat from last winter's crop and need to get the ground cleared. Luckily we like leek & potato soup !

I am growing Mammoth pot leeks from Robinsons, I seem to get good results with their seeds, I am growing the onions too, had great success in the past, I will also be sowing their trench celery in a month or so too.
