I really enjoyed listening to this. One thing I noticed was when Jacqueline talked about bee mites. She said that mites may be Nature's way of 'challenging' the DNA of bees, to promote stronger bee DNA for the future. I would like to think this is the case, however, I have also heard someone offer an alternative theory that the mites were purposefully introduced by a Big Pharma company. This is part of their plan to promote their GM pollen-free plants and thus gain control of seeds/plants/food etc. Does anyone have any views on the 'Nature versus Big Pharma' mite debate?
More great suggestions (although I wonder if the walking onions will walk themselves into my kitchen when they're ready for the pot?!)

The smallholding will have about 5 acres of established woodland/forest, mostly pines. I'm assuming that in the spanish sunshine I could experiment with growing bamboo, hemp, oats, flax, veggies, etc. in semi shade or small natural clearings.

Does anyone have any suggestions for the most useful shrubs and trees to grow in the Top Ten? I'm also aiming to experiment with grafting a variety of fruit and nut species onto already established relatives, to save money (and also cos I'm not getting any younger and don't want to wait twenty years to harvest them!).

Thanks, Wendy.

Thanks, John.
I've just looked it up - I can't believe I didn't realise that LINEN was made with flax! This looks like a great crop to grow, linseeds are so nutritional for humans and animals. And you get lovely flowers too.

Does anyone have any ideas on what the best green manure crop would be in a warmer climate?

I'm looking forward to moving to Northern Spain in September, to develop ten acres into a smallholding/community garden for education and meditation.
Please can you offer advice on what the Top Ten of Most Useful plants would be? I'm thinking along the lines of bamboo, hemp (the non-intoxicating kind), oats...species that contribute to food, housing, clothing etc. Thank you !
