Idea 32 – Stay home and rediscover your garden 🌱🌷🌳

If you had told me when I was writing Idea 4 that I would have car journeys down to under 1 most weeks I would have been quite pleased that my new bike idea was working.

I wondered this week how many of the ideas I have accidentally done during this period of isolation. Having less food waste and make do and mend have definitely been put into action.

Take a look below and see how many you have tried.We have also been trying a bit of seed growing with the little ones and can now say we have carrots and radishes sprouting. Thanks to Marks and Spencer for providing the little pots. Little did I know we would be making such good use of them. I’ve also joined the Bradley Stoke Virtual Gardening group for ideas. Garden centre are offering non-contact delivery services and most supermarket now sell seeds and soil if you need supplies if you do fancy getting green fingers.

One final link for those who like a story. Try this one on Monday evening.
