If ever there was a web site to spur you on to greater things in the vegetable garden, this is it. The Dervaes Family are on a mission to live as sustainably as possible – and we can learn a lot from them. Their plot of land is one fifth of an acre from [...]

For the past few days it has rained. It has rained so much that it constantly sounds like the final verse of the 12 Days of Christmas on our roof. And then it has rained some more. All of which means that it has not been ‘get out in the garden and do some work’ [...]

Just a quick post before I throw myself in the shower to get clean and shiny for our trip to Paris.
