A Day in the Garden

To the two inevitables; Death and Taxes, add a third, Weeding.

Earlier this week I was at a meeting, at Castlebank Park in Lanark where the Aileen Campbell of the Scottish Government released a paper on Democracy Matters.
The Community has done wonders in re-establishing the gardens. They have also created a market garden, a real market garden where they grow a range of plants and vegetables for sale. I was intrigued that the growing benches are almost a metre high and I asked the workers why the height. They didn’t know but one thought for a while and said it was so much easier to work at the potting plants; and it was so obvious!

I have real experience after todays’ gardening as I have backache weeding and planting the borders!
