My brother is growing herbs in a climate significantly warmer than that experienced in BS5.
He is growing mint indoors and he grows tomatoes and other bits and pieces outdoors. All his plants are watered on a regualr basis, but if the mint is particularly thirsty, the transformation in the hour following the watering really is a sight to see. Here for the delight of all readers is an off topic time lapse movie.
Alas no stacking, packing, sawing, burning, painting, chopping, prepping, marinating or bird feeding this time, but instead....I give you Blog BS5 guest-appearance capillary action!
