    Texas quiz: what is spring, and what is winter? We typically get two days of each, and don't have time to figure out any answers.
    I do know why you put kitchen towel rolls over leeks. They let the leeks develop more white stems. Teasel seed heads were used to comb woolen fabric to soften it, , but not for human hair!

    Answers to quezzies on 2023 Winter/Spring Quiz:

    17- the short-tailed vole has more in common with a hamster. In the classification it is in the Cricetidae Family that the hamster and the short-tailed vole belong to, the house mouse is in the Muridae Family

    18- True.

    19-
    Many snails like tender veggie leaves, but for some algae is at the top of their menu. We can’t see the colonies so easily on a naked stem, but the snail can find it and lick it off with their rasp-like “tongue”.

    20-
    Teasel was used to card wool in the old days. The Dutch common name for this plant gives-away the answer— Kaardebol.

    21-
    One pail of snow and one pail of ice weigh the same as one pail of water.

    A double rainbow — the inner rainbow colour scheme is blue-green, yellow, red. The outer rainbow is usually less brilliant in colour ant that colour scheme is just the opposite-red, yellow, blue-green.

    They are the pupae of Ladybirds.

    I cover my leeks with a kitchen paper towel roll to keep more of the stem blanched white. That is what you want to use to eat.
