A Silver Lining to Lockdown? First Vegetables from the Garden!

July 2, 2020 1:30 AM

First SpinachThe more you learn about Covid-19, the less you want to catch it - especially if you're over 70 or medically vulnerable. Now it seems that the risk with age goes up even more steeply than we originally thought.

So we're being very careful about where we go (IF we go anywhere), wear a mask and keep strictly to the 2 metre separation.

But there's still plenty to do - thanks to Zoom - and of course there's always housework.

And we've also been putting some work into the garden, with Nick specialising on the two vegetable plots.

The pic shows the first picking of our spinach.

You forget just how much better home-grown food tastes than stuff from supermarkets (remember them?).

Not got a big enough garden? Well, rent an allotment from your local town, parish, district or borough council!

Fresh air, enjoyable and productive exercise, good companionship (usually) and really tasty food.
