Two videos

This promo for 2020 national hill climb was shot last autumn by local film maker, Maciek Tomiczek. I feature going up Chinnor hill.

I also fancied submitting a video to Gardener’s World viewers videos, so I made this video. But, I don’t think it is good enough. On the positive side it showed I needed to get the hair clippers out again and finish off the back of my head.

Garden October 2019

leaves-garden

There is not too much left in the veg garden, apart from the last of the runner beans, courgettes, and tomatoes, but from lawn and borders, there are still quite a few leaves to make a salad.

Some greens still going.

  • Sorrel – a big leafed kind of herb. I thought I pulled it up last year, but it regrew in August, to my surprise. A neighbour gave it. I was pleased it grew back.
  • Dandelion leaves
  • Tomatoes
  • Spinach – a few slug holes
  • Lettuce – only one or two plants left, but get a few leaves
  • Flowers of Borage
  • Swiss Chard
  • Rocket

Inspired by 3100 Mile Race 2019

This year the race also received excellent coverage on the BBC. A foreign friend said – look how spiritual Britain is to have an article like that on its main national newsite.

That made me laugh because when you look at the political situation of Britain, spiritual development isn’t the first thing that springs to mind!

Anyway, I wrote a short article here at 3100 Mile Race 2019

No Deal Brexit – No Problem! Let’s dig our way out of this Brexit hole!

Who needs foreign imports when you can survive on home grown British turnips?

dig for victory

So in the spirit of make do and mend, I have been digging up my back garden and will be planting crops which will see me through to at least 2030.  Continue Reading →
