Work has really got in the way of the garden this week. I need to keep the chard and buckwheat under control, partly so they don’t reseed themselves and partly so they don’t take water from surrounding plants. However, a necessary trip into the city centre this morning led to a surprising bit of inspiration.
I haven’t indulged in any art of late and so on the way home I decided we should have a look in the Henry Moore Institute to see the latest sculpture exhibition (about prosthetics). We were only there for a few minutes but it grounded me. Phew! I have an immense dislike of feeling stressed.
After cooking for the first time in a week, I have finally got out into the garden to take food production forward. It’s only one purple sprouting broccoli plant but, heartened by the two uncovered kale plants which seemed to be protected by nearby rocket, I am taking advantage of the same in an empty spot by the rhubarb.
