A bean pod

Every year, I vow that I will water more than I did the last year. It doesn’t happen. Except this year.

I might still not be watering enough – there comes a point where the cost of watering outweighs the benefit of growing my own – but I do want to see some crops. And it looks like my diligence is paying off.

I had noticed something which I took to be stem growing from a bean plant. But, upon closer inspection, I realised it was a bean pod. Not sure which variety, as I didn’t keep tabs on them thoroughly enough at the seedling stage. Nonetheless, I can celebrate this minor success in the unusually hot and dry summer we are having.

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.
