Last night, I found enough energy after work to make it to Leeds Permaculture Network social. The talk was on coppicing and I was surprised to learn that we had so much of it going on in and around Leeds. Even more surprised perhaps that the council endorsed and supported it.
My immediate reaction was to get involved. However, I am good at biting off more than I can chew – realistically, this would detract from my main focus, which is becoming a better gardener. So, I will seek out these green spaces and enjoy them as a place to walk in and admire…. When I have the time.
There is not going to much of it this weekend, though. For at the meeting, what did I end up with in my bag?
That’s a question I have no answer for. But a couple of sackfuls of windfalls were brought in for us to take home. And the plan is to make crumble with those I brought home with me.
On top of that, my daughter raced to get the only cucumber on offer, also grown at the university. It may be bitter but I think it will go very well in tsatsiki.
