Hi All

I have just spent a week staying in the Lizard village in Cornwall and had fantastic weather for 5 out of 7 days! yay! :lol:

Anyway, whilst out walking I couldn't help notice the size of the plantain that grows on the coast. In my garden the leaves manage to grow between 1 inch and 2 inches if I am lucky! In Cornwall, 5 inches across!

Needless to say I brought some back and the Puzzle and Jigsaw will be having some of these in their mixed weed salad over the next few days. :)

Pennytort :lol:

Hi Pennytort,
Glad you enjoyed your trip to Cornwall. Welcome back. Those certainly sound like monster weeds. Plenty for Jigsaw and Puzzle to eat! Thanks for sharing. ;)
Kind Regards
Freddy :D

The Lizard is fab. Ive been a couple of times and would go again. The size of the weeds might be partly because of the micro climate on the Lizard which is really mild, making a long growing season for many plants.

Hi Pennytort,

You aren't just seeing the difference between slenderleaf plantain and broadleaf plantain are you? :lol: :wacko:
Sounds just the sort of thing I would do!!
