I regularly compile quizzes for Foxglove Covert, our local nature reserve. They are sold for funds. I am not mobile enough to help as a volunteer, so this is one way of helping out.
The quizzes are faintly cryptic in content - but they are still fairly easy because our object is to sell the copies at £1 a time and if I made them too hard nobody would buy them and it would defeat the object.
Several folk have asked on my blog if I could post a quiz for them to have a go at. Obviously I can't post the latest one, which I have printed off today (otherwise nobody would spend a pound on it when they could download it for nothing).
So here is one on fruit and vegetables, which I did some time in 2015. See how you get on with it. I will post the answers next week-end.

the questions are cryptic.
