Down to Earth

Just travelling back from the garden centre in Hexham called Down to Earth. We have stocked up on onion sets and seed potatos. I also got a mushroom kit and, interestingly, a set of horse radish roots. I was reading a book about wildfoods last night on the train back from London. It included a section about horse radish. I'm not aware of any growing wild where we live though admittedly it is not one of the wild foods we have gone in search of before. Anyway, we'll give a go at growing our own. Dad is with us and he said his uncle used to grow it and it nearly took over the garden. That didn't stop him from buying some roots for his allotment!
