In Our Garden

These bananas and the sweet potato vine have all come from one 'mother' plant so represent excellent value for anyone who wants to be able to propagate their own plants for free. Not only that they are beautiful plants and produce delicious food.

One of the four grape vines that have fruited in abundance this year, giving us fruit to eat and even more to share with others. The sweet potatoes shown here may not look delicious but they are and so was the pumpkin that was a volunteer as a result of our composting all of our food scraps.
We were given one lemon-grass plant about 6 years ago and from that have propagated over a hundred, most of which, like these, we have given away. As well we are glad to able to share with others the loquat trees that have grown from seeds from our tree and the mulberry trees that we have grown from cuttings. We love to see other people also getting pleasure, satisfaction and food from their own yards.

Happy St David's Day


One of my students reminded me that the 1st of March is St David's Day, a very important day in Wales and for Welsh folk around the world. In the sixties and seventies when I was growing up in the UK I was very lucky to have an Aunty and Uncle who loved to go camping so we spent many happy holidays in North Wales which was nearby. I still remember how much fun it was going to the seaside and then into the beautiful countryside and visiting the historic and interesting buildings and places. I was also lucky enough to attend a two week camp on Anglesey with other young people from all around the country. It was a world away from everyday life and one day I would love to visit again and explore the whole of Wales.  For more information on St David's Day (Dydd Gwŷl Dewi (Sant) hapus) you can click on this link.
