    Heads up! There's some new, beautiful young broads in town. I purchased organic broadbeans from Eden Seeds, my favourite supplier. They took ages to poke their heads up. Two weeks in fact, but that is quite normal. There's 90 - 120 days between sowing and picking. One secret of broadbeans is to not water them at all from the day of planting until two distinct leaves are visible above the ground, else there is a chance of rotting. I planted 70 beans in various places in the garden. Some...

    The other day I decided to whip up a batch of what I call Pizza Swirls. It's pizza, but not as we know it. I had made a decent-sized batch of pizza dough (using 600g 'strong' pizza/bread flour). I had divided it into 6 balls and placed each ball in the freezer wrapped in a zip-lock bag. I removed a single bag from the freezer in the morning, and by the evening the dough had thawed and was rising ('it's alive!!!')

This volume was all of the SB that was published when I became a devotee, and I have read it more than any other passage. Still, even with whole 12 Cantos of SB in print, I still find this story very inspiring. I like biographies anyway, and “coming to...

    I am sure you would agree that one of the greatest disappoinments for an organic gardener is to find crop beds decimated by critters. Considering that many edible plants take months to mature, one often throws his or her hands up to the garden gods and proclaims 'what's the use!!' Interestingly, it seems that the same simple kitchen ingredient that rid my garden of parrots (who ate all my young snow pea sprouts) could be the answer to my slug and caterpillar problem.
