The leaning tower of seeds(a)

My tiny front garden has always been a problem, not least because it’s been paved over and used as a driveway. Parking in London is a problem, and so having our own driveway does make life much easier. I’ve planted bulbs and wildflowers in large troughs lining the driveway and finally moved the birdfeeder from the back garden to the front. I’d much rather have it in the back garden but now that it’s been cat-proofed so that the cats are stuck in there, I didn’t think it’d be fair to lure the birds in to be pounced on. So I’ve left it in the front garden and I’ll just have to cross my fingers that nobody steals it. We have something of an infestation of what Emma the gardener calls “Two-legged rats” in my part of south London. Hopefully nobody will deprive the birds of their seeds by snaffling our feeder.

We farm a three acre smallholding in Hampshire, England, having fled London in pursuit of the good life for our little family. We mess about with an assorted menagerie and try to be as self-sufficient as possible in meat and fruit and vegetables whilst enjoying our plot and an outdoors lifestyle with our son. I am the luckiest person that I know.
