It’s that time of year again… the great seed catalogue browse. Such fun planning this year’s crop.

And the best thing is that all this garden planning can be done in the warmth of your kitchen.

Our road in Streatham must surely be the friendliest road in South London. We’ve been here barely 3 years and know more neighbours in that short time than in 20 years living in nearby Balham. Last Sunday was another neighbourhood event which involved my favourite pastimes of eating, drinking, chatting and looking at gardens. Marvellous. And I made a cake.
