My good friend Annemarie sent me a picture this morning. It's too good to keep for myself:
I checked out their website, but could not easily spot this picture on it, check it out yourself if you like. This statement is probably not true at face value, as the importance of food gets more and more recognised. So I would replace the word 'no' with 'not very much'. But pointing out the lack of interaction between food and health industry is a very valid point which needs to be raised.
Finally the rainy season has started in Perth. We got a wooping 54mm on 28 April! It poured down, a welcome breathing space for plants and soil biodiversity. I noticed that due to the humidity in the garden the sound levels especially at night time have risen significantly, lots of crickets and frogs. A real pleasure to watch and listen.
Despite a broken foot I have prepared pots for planting and sowed lettuces and herbs. I pulled out huge stalks of sun flowers and will get the garden bed ready for beans. I also pruned some bougainvilleas and will have another go at propagating them, as the last attempt was unsuccessful. I noticed small roots starting already to grow out of some stems close to a leave. This season might be better.
Getting my hands dirty, turning the compost, emptying the worm farm and preparing the garden beds feels go good and right. I can't wait to go out in my garden again.
