And then there's the bits where Naomi's growing vegetables. It all looks amazing, and tastes great.
As I've reported before, not content with having her own allotment and the beds she's built in our garden, Naomi is also one of the founders of a new community supported agriculture project, with a plot of organic land at Hammonds End in nearby Harpenden. Nome has an administrative role in the project, as well as putting in many hours of hard labour there.

The Food Smiles plot started off looking daunting - well, to me, anyway!
|Stony soil, and lots of digging needed|
|Poly-tunnels, but needing repair|
Local garden centre Aylett Nurseries were very generous in their donations of essentials,
and children from a local art club presented Food Smiles with two scarecrows they'd made.
Everything's very well organised,
and, as the various produce becomes ready to harvest, it's all shared appropriately.
In the few months that this project has been underway, they've made great progress, and are now literally reaping - and eating - the benefits of their commitment and effort.
