Saba Nut flower late Nov 2015

"The shell is around12cm with several edible nuts inside each shell. The shell is very hard so I've never tried to crack open one but instead wait for the shell to burst open naturally and pick up the pieces. Young leaves are supposed to be…"

Saba Nut flower late Nov 2015

"I only keep the height to approx 2 metres so I can prune it without climbing onto a stool. Saba nut tree is very hardy, it can withstand drought, wetness, harsh pruning, roots being pot bound and will always bounce back."

Hugelkultur - Learn German

Posted on July 3, 2016 at 22:33 2 Comments

The word Hugelkultur reminds me of an email sent to me last week, just want to share the fun.....

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5- year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".
