More rot

Yesterday seemed one misfortune after another, from sleeping in and forgetting to put yeast in the panettone to being reminded of how stressful it was to drive in busy city traffic.

However, we did make it to the clothing exchange just as they closed their doors to new donations. I think they were under-staffed and simply could not deal with putting the volume of clothes on racks.

I did at least get round to cutting down the old mint stems and putting them round the blueberry bush for mulch. And whilst doing that I noticed that one of the buds on the main apple tree seemed to be coming into leaf. A bit early, perhaps?

Going into the shed also revealed a surprise. Not that I should have been too surprised really, considering the mould on the squash previously. Perhaps the mould on the runner beans above is only superficial but it does look like the shed is either damp or the beans weren’t dry enough before being stored in there.

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.
