LIMES! Wondering if anyone is interested in a produce swap. I have more limes than I can freeze, pickle, bake or drink. Happy to exchange with any veges! I'm at Carina.

Wendy :- I have heaps of chokos, or a bottle of mulberry jam ( Low Sugar ), or semi-dried mango (frozen). I, have a potted Tahitian Lime, and  like Andrew it just does not do well, unlike my Washington Navel which is in the ground. I would like to get some West Indian lime seeds, boy they are as tough as old boots.

Wendy - any chance of you coming to Susanne's GV at Brighton on 23rd April? There'd be a number of us there who would welcome some Limes.

Thanks Susan, But wouldn't you know it, I have been waiting for 2 years for my bunch of bananas and just this week they have started to colour up and now they are all ripe at once! So thanks for the offer, but I have plenty. I wouldn't say no to some eggs if your chickens are laying well. But please, you are welcome to the limes anyway. What is the most secure way of sending you my address for pickup.

I have a hand of about 16 banana's if you'd be happy to exchange?? They are goldfinger banana's and quite large.  I could come on the weekend.

We use cut pieces of Limes and Lemons on the window sills and our desks in the office to deter those tiny winny Ants that bite, it works.

You can always use the lime juice to deter some pests in your garden by mixing it with water according to THIS site.
