My mum thinks my vegie garden is Pip worthy, so I thought I’d send you a photo. We’re looking at newly planted lettuce, baby spinach, newly seeded lettuce and carrots. Then, in the next bed; beans, bunching onions, lettuce, all sorts of herbs, tomatoes and chillies. There are sunflowers for the chickens – their house is just visible, far left – and weeds, all mixed in together. What you can’t see, hidden behind this bounty, is a patch of potatoes, shallots and pumpkins.

Your garden sounds beautifully abundant, Tristy. What I love seeing is all those plants flowering and going to seed, creating biodiversity for the birds and bees. Robyn
