An apple a day might keep the doctor away but what about the psychiatrist?! Over the past few years, I’ve found that growing a few vegetables in my very small garden seems to make me a much nicer, less stress-bunnied individual. Okay, so maybe it can make you just a teeeny bit obsessive (ask anyone who’s ever sown a packet of seeds how often they check up on their progress) but it’s enormously satisfying, it doesn’t cost much and you don’t need a few acres to get a kick out of it.
Even in very small gardens it’s possible, with just a little bit of work, to have something from your garden on your plate every day. This is what my blog is about – one small radish, lettuce, carrot, beetroot, artichoke, cucumber…your organic dose of one a day, along with a few recipe suggestions for what you can do with your bounty, getting rid of pests without resorting to chemicals and some musings on life and food in general.
I started this blog when was living in Cape Town, South Africa. Then it was living and growing vegetables in the rain-and-darkness capital of the planet: Yorkshire in the UK. I’ve finally returned to live in my home county of Cork, in the south-west of Ireland. I’m beginning to think the Yorkshire sojourn was designed to make it feel balmier back home. It worked.
