My strawberry patch is taking over a lot of the veg plot, which is now not used, but last years, I sp...

Re: No alternative

Gwen I hope you continue to do well. The pain medication allergies sound horrendous, how frightening for you. Several years ago my neighbour had major surgery and she had some horrifying times post op.

Stay safe yourself.
