Don’t you love it when you stumble across someone sharing their surplus produce somewhere down a country lane? Or somewhere down a terraced street in Easton?

I often think about how small-scale local growing needs to be supported by small-scale local preserving of crop surpluses. It’s a noticeable hole in our ‘growing’ knowledge and the infrastructure of local food too, but not to worry, any spare salad leaves from my greenhouse seem to be in demand from my neighbours.

Latest results – 5 bags of fresh greenhouse leaves offered for 50p a pop. 4 gone in the first 5 minutes. Total cash from the day £4.00 (do the math)
