Pride Of The Sarf

I was at the end of the garden wondering whether it was time to give up my 'fruitless' gardening and start using the space for fires again when I was shocked, surprised and delighted to see that I had actually grown more than slug food this summer. Yes! A real life actual cucumber! Well who'd-a-thought-it!

On the other side of the hill the trees are heaving with unripe Chestnuts, so maybe I'm more a forager than a farmer.


PS No Rex, I haven't forgotten, they're just aren't any worthy examples to send you yet.

Just remember... the seeds for the downfall of human civilization were planted the day we left the nomadic hunter/gatherer lifestyle to become sedentary agrarians.

Some of us will never be farmers. You're in good company.
