The Roots

I have fond memories of wearing oversized wellingtons, fingernails filled with earth and grazed knees. The birth of this page is owed to my fondness for good food, fresh produce and attempting to live a sustainable life. Since you have made it onto here, why not have a read of my blog posts and give something a try?

 

I love the Chinese words for greeting: not strictly 'Hello' but 'Have you eaten yet?'
