Small things are so often underestimated. Take my garden for example. On a tiny scrap of postage stamp sized section I have managed - mainly by neglect - and only by sheer virtue of putting things in -to have produced so many beans, courgettes, onions and lettuces that I am sick of the sight of them. My neighbours and friends have smiled weakly and muttered a gracious thaaaanks as I deliver more bags of beans and courgettes. MY PLEASURE!! I would never have thought that it was possible. I am reminded that you always need a lot less than you think and that applies not just to plots of land. That's my garlic crop - grown from the bulbs Miriam gave me last winter. I think that will keep me going for a month or two at least.
Heres to a week of no plans.
