    In day to day life, the well known football players
    are becoming a role model to motivate the youths. Most online football managers give you a team when you sign up and
    you’re stuck with them forever, no matter how
    well you do. I guess a handful of suspensions was enough to
    satisfy the NCAA.

    Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with
    the pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

    Often I don’t bother replying to a blog post or making any comments, but in this case I feel the need to say ‘good job’!

    I once over 20 years ago brought a packet of borage seed back to NZ from the Mnt Vernon garden shop in the USA
    Not very legal , I’d prob end up in gaol now…
    However it was fantastic,it grew plants over a metre tall, brilliant blue flowers and the bees and butterflies loved it.
    Also it self seeded every year,and is proberbly still doing that even now.
    Last year I planted some in the garden at our holiday house,I wasn’t sure how it would go as it’s by the sea, but away it has gone and our nieghbour is very happy with the influx of bees for his hives.
    The smaller leaves can be used like spinach, and of course the flowers are nice in salad and in icecubes for fancy g&ts, or in pimms.
    I love plants that just keep on giving.
    Love having found Higgledy Garden even if on the other side of the world…..LJ

    Somewhere I read that honey crystallises when the bees have been at lots of daisy flowers. And once, when I had borage, I was taught to cook and eat it with spinach. One way of keeping a thuggish plant in line!

      The Italians stuff the leaves and bake them…the young leaves that is.
