    Sea Cadets Think? - shows how out of touch you are!
    Already a profitable commercial horticultural venture here anyway, apparently it sells a lot of salads in summer to cruise ships who prefer Falklands quality over Argentine

    Not withstanding Islander's bountiful experience in such matters, I do wonder if the folks in FIDC ever look through their desert of filed (and failed) devleopment reports and schemes going back 30+ years. And before that, the years of UK ODA (for runner to DfID) baked “ideas”. Perhaps the new era is to sweep the archives clean, pulp and dig in?

    ”Which mushrooms?
    ;-)”

    The mushrooms that grow on Saunders Island, (in the open, not under artificial conditions).
