I grow vegetables in an organic community garden in Canberra, Australia. We are characterised by mild winters, with a long frost danger zone, and a short, dry, hot summer. Our natural, unimproved soil is mainly clay, with a shallow (a few centimeters only) topsoil. Drought, frosts and climate change worry me. The peace I feel in the garden inspires me. I also keep a diary, listed as "a weft yarn". It chronicles the things I make in the home.
