A recent thread caused me to remember times best forgotten, a History making time that has changed nothing yet is relevant in that it has all the Major areas of the world toeing the line nose to nose.
Gardening has changed completely yet is now turning full circle to what I knew as a lad. The garden then fed the family and extended family year round, almost everything we ate came out of the garden in season was bottled or preserved. Then came the fashion years, Rockeries, Lawns, Decking, extra rooms and places to burn sausages and spoil chicken. Now people around me are finding the joys we took for granted, fresh food out of the garden and into the pan, a real eye opener for most. My question, is History relevant or Bunkum as Henry Ford is reputed to have said. Does my input make any difference as looking it up it appears to be Lawns, Peony's and Strawberries with the odd fruit tree thrown in. With all the books available am I even relevant?
