OK. One of these things is not like the others *sings* .. that's because nasturtiums may very well be one of my favourite plants.

They look pretty and exotic and lush, they have bright flowers for months, they self seed with no work, and you can eat them.

I am admiring of nasturtiums today.

If you happen to visit rivet, have a sneaky look off her courtyard down into the garden to the south. They have the biggest nasturtiums I have ever seen. Like, you could eat your dinner off them big. I suspect genetic experiments.

Also, yesterday I did not intend to start a huge discussion on the relative merits of organic, the use of petrochemicals in fertiliser, or which fair trade organisations are above board and which aren't. I just wanted to celebrate something organic being cheap enough for me to afford. But I'm not sorry that it went that way, I've learned a lot. I love that my friends are educated people with opinions that vary so that I get lots of info from which to make my own thoughts. Thank you all.

And yes, there has been talking. *happy*
