This month’s Journal celebrates the dandelion, which seems to be having a particularly good year. Articles include an article on the city of Nantes, a description of local fish, the perch, the second article in Elizabeth Tomkins’ series on painting, and another Postcard from the Past.
Recipes are provided by Hetty’s Kitchen, and Chamomile Cuisine, a new cookery school in Bieuzy Les Eaux, near Pontivy . There is also a special article on the mustard plant, and mustard, and an extended What’s On section.
This month Mr Biznuz looks at Employment and Unemployment, and Tim the Gardener continues to examine the issue of F! seeds, and advises what to plant in May.
