Roger and I had a lovely long weekend at the shack. Many years ago we made it a totally electronics-free zone. Hence no laptop to write with even (that's also because we don't have one!), so I had to resort to the old-fashioned pen and some very, very old quarto paper that we are still wading through from a stockpile we inherited in the 1980's! I read a lot and wrote a lot. I will share it all with you soon.

There are things I want to write about which I cannot remotely link to this blog's theme of growing heirloom vegetables and what this means to us and the world. Consequently these thoughts are never written and keep niggling at me, like a tiny, deep splinter, invisible but their presence intensified when disturbed. I have to find some way to get the splinters out so I am going to make a link from this blog to a page which will contain a list of the personal blogs of members of the Hills and Plains Seedsavers. I know one or two who already have personal blogs and others who would like to in the future. Readers will be able to follow the lives and thoughts of these people if they wish and, more exciting, the blog owners will have total freedom to be as diverse and self-indulgent as they choose. I, for one, can't wait!! I am not good at remaining within boundaries for long before I begin to push up against the fence, looking for a way to break free. is my first post. In the future, look under the Australian links "Adelaide - blogs of members".

Oh, I love this idea, Kate! I can't wait to see what roads these personal blogs take me down!
