Garden – before and after

September 11, 2008 at 1:57 pm 3 comments

Yonks ago now, I was looking for a photo of my garden to send to Pattie for her Victory Garden Drive and idling through the folder on my computer (self-deprecatingly called ‘Hippy Photos’) where I keep photos relating to gardening, knitting etc and came across an old one of the garden when we first moved in. I acquired boxes and plants grew so slowly that I never noticed it changing, and I’m now so used to it being chock full of green things, but what a contrast!

This was the garden when we moved in.

This is the garden now. (Not pictured: beans, peas, potatoes, butternut squash, dalek.)

    Yes, of course you may! I think the ‘after’ photo is the same as the one I sent you a few weeks ago, but by all means use them both if you want to.

Rob Hopkins, Transition Handbook

“Environmentalists have often been guilty of presenting people with a mental image of the world’s least desirable holiday destination – some seedy bed and breakfast near Torquay, with nylon sheets, cold tea and soggy toast – and expecting them to get excited about the prospect of NOT going there. The logic and the psychology are all wrong.”

Barbara Kingsolver, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

"Food is that rare moral arena in which the ethical choice is generally the one more likely to make you groan with pleasure."

Carlo Petrini

"A gastronome who is not also an environmentalist is an idiot. An environmentalist who is not also a gastronome is, well, sad."

Sharon Astyk

"I am, of course, firmly opposed to consumerism and corporatism in all its forms, and I believe that we are deeply confused about material needs and wants. Now let me explain how books and yarn are totally different than the material things that other people want ;-)…."

Raj Patel, at Slow Food Nation

"Biofuels, which is the preposterous policy that we should grow food not to eat it but to set it on fire."
