We are about to embark on a new project here at Dixter, the growing of interesting vegetable not only for eating but also for there foliage. We had a meeting with the two men who are going to front this project for us, I found it very hard to get to sleep on Friday night, I was so excited, it is just the project I need to take to Little Compton, Rhode Island at the end of July when I am there to give a talk on vegetable growing, this will give the talk so much more interest for all. I will ask dear Ed Bowen (one of the best nurserymen in the United Sates) to grow some of the plants over there, all these plants are grown in pots, I can use these live plants as part of my talk. The ones that I have found most interesting are the Oca (Oxalis tuberosa), my Grandmother use to roast them for me as a child, how exotic am I? The project is going to be called “The kitchen Garden a new experience” maybe the title of my talk also…….
