A catch-up on the allotment in Autumn. There's lots to do to prepare for winter.
Mindfulness and green living go hand-in-hand for me. The definition of mindfulness (according to Google) is "the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something." There are so many aspects of green living which can be thought of as mindful.
After a short hiatus from the blog I'm back and ready to talk about the fun we've been having down at the allotment...
Call me crazy but I'm thinking of using flowers from my own garden in my wedding bouquet. Well, why not? They are already there, my garden is full of beautiful flowers throughout the summer, so nothing new would be produced just to be cut for one day in my hands. They are organically grown and completely natural as much of my garden is self-seeded anyway.
This is the first of a seasonal series on our first year on the allotment. We went armed with no idea, a Thermos of tea and a lot of optimism.
Remember that it is possible to be green and still enjoy going on holiday. But it's important to think about how you go and what you do once you're there.
A garden transformation: from unhealthy lawn to natural, insect, bee and butterfly heaven! See the photo timeline here.
