I am ashamed to say that I opened a pack of Fine Beans today.
There are more carbon footprints on that pack from Kenya, than Sir Somebody uh! Hum! Avoiding the Viruses by popping off in a custom-made flying machine.
Can we grow fine beans, runner beans, broad beans here in Goostrey? Yes of course we can.
There is home-grown local produce in our shops, corn ripening on the fields and tatties-a-plenty. Apples swell, blackberries peek from brambles.
The acidic sweet elderberry flowers now show berries. Conkers form on the horse-chestnut trees that held fuschia pink flowers. The grasses and thistles are abundant with bees and butterflies.
