Taro

I just planted (LOL - I dug a hole and bunged it in!) a Taro. Never planted one before, come to think of it, I have never eaten one before! but I'm not letting that stop me.

I just checked at Daleys and they say that they look like Elephants ears so they should be quite pretty as well as edible.

One more plant for the growing challenge!

I also made a batch of 'mead' to see how it goes. It looks interesting.

Hey L

Good luck with that taro, be careful tho if you eat the leaves also (which you can do) they must be properly cooked, they contain oxalic acid, which will cause irritation to the throat if undercooked

The plant always reminded me of the elephant ears plant, very pretty.
