Free to a good home

We went on a fantastic walk with my French group today. It took us into the Yorkshire Dales, beyond Ilkley, a town northeast of Leeds.

Apart the conversation, which included learning about where my daughter might get the chance to have a go at playing the harp, as well as of course the exercise and the views, as we headed back towards Ilkley, I noticed that someone had left runner bean seedlings out to be taken away by passersby. Free to a good home.

How could I resist? Especially as I had had in mind the possibility of growing some in the latest hugel bed while it settles down, before moving the blueberry bush.


Absolutely smashing. And now I know what to do with plastic cups which unfortunately come my way!

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.
