I’ve received a wonderful ‘goodbye’ gift recently from the team at CBM, the overseas disability charity, with whom i’d worked with for some time.
They clubbed together to get me a tubtrug packed with things for my garden – gardening gloves, a string container (with string!), some terracotta plant markers for Chives and Parsley, and a load of National Garden Centre Vouchers (they’ll come in very handy!). There’s also a little statue of a frog beside a stone with the words ‘Welcome to my garden’ engraved on it – made me chuckle – so that will be going into the garden once it begins to wake up.
There’s also some Johnsons seeds to keep me busy in the next few months (I better sow them as I know they’re reading this now!)
- Aubergine ‘Early Long Purple 2’
- Parsley ‘Laura’
- Pepper (Sweet) ‘Friggitello’
- Tomato ‘Minibel’
As one of the team pointed out, I’m not allowed to visit them unless I’m carrying a box of fresh vegetables. No pressure there then!
Check out CBM’s work – they do some amazing work in some of the poorest countries of the world.
