You have to get something out of life to enjoy it and I was reminded of this while staying with family in Australia. Not only did I learn a lot from gardening in such a climate but I got a lot of joy from seeing my little nephew Kosta going out each morning to see how the vegetable plants are doing. Kosta really does seem to have a natural interest in the production of vegetable. I just hope that he keeps it up and goes out to water them at the end of the day, they are still going to need it and I am on my way home to start seed sowing myself. I was also very happy to pick up at the airport a new copy of Monocle about Australia, it is time to get a house there.
