Sustenance is something else

One of the things we started doing in our barren corner of the industrial harbour a few years ago was greening it up, making some soil, planting some herbs and even attempting some actual vegetable growing. Basil often works, rosemary, thyme, sage too, the perennial strawberries in a synergetic fungal culture (thanks Natalia!) are delivering every year as are the blackberries and a few other random things. We try other things like silverbeet and fennel, salads and the tomatoes were often quite fantastic. Some things are less visible: today we cleaned up a bit and harvested our potatoes after a whole summer.

1.25 kilogrammes. I don’t think we will be an island of sustainability and self-reliance any time soon.
