“My vegetable love should grow
Vaster than empires”
This is a little chronicle of my adventures with mud and things that grow. Maybe also scavenging stories and foraging frolics.
The start of this coincides with being given the stewardship of a little London garden, after years of horticultural frustration in a dark gardenless flat (years marked by the corpses of many short-lived herbs and vegetables – which were painstakingly coaxed into life, but quickly relinquished it with bitter resentment – ‘call this a life?’)
So, to make up for lost time, I shall be trying to grow four years worth of vegetables in the next six months, trying lots of new things, enjoying the cooking and eating of said veg and revelling in the delights of unconstrained composting.
