Taster from the Guardian’s special on the growth of gardening (geddit?) this weekend:
From reducing your carbon footprint to recapturing the flavour of freshly picked produce, the reasons for taking up veg growing are wonderfully diverse. But perhaps most of all is the simple delight in seeing a tiny seed become food for the table. And as for stress busting? Tensions just melt away when digging with a robin watching your every move.
Not to mention the aching back, anger at slugs eating your lettuces, wind blowing down your beans and blight devastating your potatoes.
