George Monbiot's orchard

George Monbiot, British journalist and activist, recently published a lovely piece about growing produce for yourself and why supermarkets can't give you the beautiful fruit you might desire. The article isn't heavyweight, but the enthusiasm for growing your own fruit is infectious.

    Monbiot is my favourite environmentalist. This is a fab article…one of his many. Excellent find Duncan.

    nice article. we have just started our 'orchard', at last count a lemon, lime, olive, fig, vine leaf(for dolmades), apple(2 varieties)and pomegranate. we would have planted more but i think we will just be feeding possums :( Now i just have to wait 3 years!
