Thanks so much Blueberry, I picked up the package on my way to work this morning. The idiot postie left me a note to say it was too big for the letterbox and that I should have a parcel box................................................Well, doh! I wonder why he/she couldn't see the box that's approximately 30cm x 50cm x 12cm right there beside the letterbox :rolleyes::rolleyes:........in plain view........with teeth that could have bitten him/her..... a door even with a fancy knob.........right where it has been for the past 17 years!:confused:


Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

So Blueberry....how do you pronounce yacon? Is it like bacon? Or maybe "yakkin"? Or "ya-CON"? Or YAR-con"?
I have emailed you (thanks for the reply) and need to learn the correct pronunciation if I am going to grow it!:o

Don't worry about what people think...they don't do it very often.

yep, 'Ya-Con" is right.

And you can plant it now, right through winter. It's a really tough plant, grows easily.
