Spring In The Garden
Spring has sprung and flowers, fruit and veggies are sprouting everywhere. So, strike while the iron is hot and have a crack at planting.
The list below is just an example, but a great place to start, depending on your garden size, of course.
As you well know, gardening has multiple physical and meditative benefits and it has been proven to relieve stress and anxiety – so get digging!

*The image of this fruit used as a vegetable was tarnished during the Depression as it became the staple diet of many poor families (especially in warm climates, where the plant tends to be evergreen). It makes excellent chutney and can be used like any veg in salads, stews and in stir-fry.
