I am currently writing an article about growing your own herbs, fruit and veg, in which I offer sage (ha! Oh, what scintillating wit) advice on laying out a vegetable plot and suchlike, along with expert tips on when to plant potato seedlings and how to grow tomatoes in an old bucket.

If any proof should be needed that one should never trust anything you read in the press, I think this is it.

At last, some good news!

Like many others, I've been following the story of Laurel Hester, the terminally ill former cop who just wants to be able to transfer her pension to her female partner, who would otherwise lose the couple's house. The local council repeatedly refused to allow Hester to do this - but now it seems they've had an attack of humanity and have done the right thing. And about time, too.
