TEASELS

Post by Jacksparrow » Thu Jun 05, 2014 4:01 pm

This years Teasel crop is coming along nicely. The photo below shows three of them growing out of the side of my drive against the creeper covered wall. They are currently a little over 6 feet tall and still growing. I will need a ladder to pick the Teasels in the autumn. :)

Very impressive already, Jacksparrow. A ladder is correct - they're huge !!

I'm tempted, greenfinch :)

Impressive 'creeperage' too, jacksparrow :yes:

It was interesting to hear on Springwatch that only the male goldfinch has a beak long enough to extract the seeds from a teasel.
