Just a thought…
Since the coronavirus epidemic started, a lot of people have taken to growing their own. Some just because they’ve had time on their hands but a surprising number are, like me, a little concerned about their food security.
One thing this pandemic has shown us is the fragility of our food supply system. There doesn’t need to be an actual shortage, just a suggestion of a problem is enough to start people panic buying. Once started, it quickly becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Having a plot capable of providing food is an insurance policy in an uncertain world.
Happily things don’t need to go wrong for this insurance policy to pay off. Growing your own is rewarding in many ways. Not least, it pays for itself. Saving money that would be spent in the shops for inferior fruit and vegetables.
And don’t forget, working on the plot is keeping you fit in body and mind.
