    I do like them but they're also the and the best veg plants to take because:

    A) easy to grow
    B) high in nutrients
    C) east to collect seed from to increase stock and grow future food
    ok, I'm stumped.

    but, but,

    where will you get the water to grow the plants from? its a desert island after all

    I was hoping it would be one of those slightly big desert islands with a stream and small bit of fertile land in a mini forest.

    If it's not... I'd take a condenser, Fishing equipment and some Crambe maritima seeds. This is sea kale and is used to growing in exposed sea salt laden ground.

        Meh, I think I'll fly it myself! Maybe a few beers though - might as well enjoy it!

        Hmm, I am incredibly impartial to beer to be fair though! Maybe beer will be my second item, then I think whisky would get to join me as my third option!

        I was thinking about maybe having a party on the island before flying my helicopter back, but then thought if I had beer and whisky, I wouldn't be able to have food, which is obviously a massive problem...!
