The man in front of me in the checkout queue handed over a couple of seed packets to be added to the total.
“Have you grown leeks before?” the Store Assistant asked.
“Yeah, they were really easy.”
“Hm,” came the disappointed response. “Mine were terrible. Tried growing asparagus as well, but that failed. My potatoes and carrots were mint.”
No wonder you couldn’t grow anything, I thought as I loaded my shopping on the conveyor, if you expected to get vegetables from herbs.
