A different kind of gardening book

Ben Raskin: “The recommendation of pinching out the growing tip of plants when in full flower, is to remove the exact bit that is attractive to blackfly. Unfortunately, spring -sown plants often aren’t big enough to do this when the blackfly move in. Anyway it is suggested that this succulent young growth can be used like spinach; this is second only in repulsiveness to eating the young pods, Nevertheless it would be a shame to waste an edible plant part, so lose it in a stew. Nutrition of this leafy green morsel will be marginally higher if the blackly have already found it.”
