Last year we went on a Parish outing to visit the gardens and Brewery of Hunmanby Grange, home of award winning Wold Top Beer.
I have known these gardens since they were first opened to the public , and to my gardening mind they are an absolute joy and inspiration. Archdruid Eileen would feel at home in them , as the landscape around them is pure first farmers , and the gardens are as up to date as Eileens apps were.
Now you all know I yearn for an iphone3GS, an iMac or even the latest iphoto app but you do not know that I have dreamt of having some mushroom compost, as my children yearned for every Smurf, Pokeman and My Little Pony. I have not dreamed of having Processed Mushroom compost from a Garden Centre , sterile and clean in a neat plastic sack with air holes and advertised on Band Q flyers, or praised by Alys Fowler. I have yearned for spent compost ,because it is not really spent at all just tired , wanting a rest in my garden before it pays out for its final fling.I have kept this thought . I keep bringing it to my mind, I mulch the thought with my dreams of perfect peonies, of Echiums 17'high again, and of our mushroom , Paneer and pea curry.
Today was the DAY. Yes! said Colin , I will come with you-if we go now! That was after the phonecall revelation that it was 50 p a bag , bring your own sacks and shovels. Easy!
