It's going to take more than losing a car plant to keep those Mackems down..

They're not losing a car plant.

FrankieTeardrop - 06 Feb 2019 11:55:29 (#2 of 72)

Yet.

Won’t need any cars after Brexit. How are the turnip growing conditions?

Not very good in Sunderland, as the soil is boron poor. That leads to hollow turnips.

They can be used to illuminate the city during the hours of darkness.

"How are the turnip growing conditions?"

Morrisons was out of turnips when I went to buy some the other night.

Some? how many do you want? takes me about a month to get through one. Are you addicted to turnips?

FrankieTeardrop - 06 Feb 2019 12:01:02 (#8 of 72)

I wanted three.

Unlimited free supply of turnips (or more accurately baigies) hereabouts, along with sprouts.

Happy to mail you one for the cost of P&P.

FleurDuMal - 06 Feb 2019 12:03:10 (#10 of 72)

How extravagant!

A friend is a major contract farmer, he leaves crates of the things by his gate on a help yourself basis.

Gets a few free pints, as you'd expect.

Even in Scotland.

FrankieTeardrop - 06 Feb 2019 12:08:52 (#12 of 72)

I got some from the market - they're quite expensive. Need to work out if picking them up for free in Scotland and selling them here is worth the fuel costs. Could be a nice little earner.

Are you addicted to turnips?

Robert Palmer rejected lyrics no 2413.

FleurDuMal - 06 Feb 2019 12:14:04 (#14 of 72)

I detest turnips.

FleurDuMal - 06 Feb 2019 12:14:14 (#15 of 72)

I'm going to starve, aren't I?

You can make them into wine. Quite similar to an oaky Chardonnay.

rgtstoppedcounting - 06 Feb 2019 12:15:22 (#17 of 72)

I detest turnips.

As does Alan the farmer. I'm not that keen, but I do like a sprout.

Unlimited free supply of turnips (or more accurately baigies)

White turnips only

HouseOfLametta - 06 Feb 2019 12:19:59 (#19 of 72)

Roots realists.

JacobReesBogg - 06 Feb 2019 12:29:16 (#20 of 72)

Pssst! Wanna buy a turnip. Meet me in the carpark - cash only. Is that your daughter? I'll give you a barrow full of turnips for her.
