As if by magic!

This morning, I have seen just how useful a potting shed could be. I drew up the kitchen blind and there before me

was a pot of cauliflower seedlings. Yesterday, I swear there was only one of them – but then again, this is the ‘window that works’.

The phacelia I sowed on the other side of said window about a week ago has also seemingly sprouted in the last twenty-four hours. Ideally, that will grow quickly and protect the soil till it is warm enough to sow basil and coriander.  I’ve not grown the former outside before, so it will be interesting to see if there is any magic left by then!


About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
