I've been trying to be a bit disciplined and use up the older seed packets so that I can start with fresh seeds next year. Quite hard when the brassica packets contain hundreds of seeds and we really only want a dozen or so plants of each.

Soruss is getting a bit cocky now that spring is under way. Unfortunately, he is just as guest-unfriendly as his dad. So far he's tried to attack almost every guest and had a couple of satisfying attacks when my cousin and her 10-year-old daughter stumbled while fighting him. One of his tricks is to fly up behind people, aiming for the backs of their knees. But at least he's very content in his territory and safely contained within it. The general safety advice is: Take a stick when traversing his territory and keep an eye on him, even after you've walked past him, and you'll be fine.
