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.

Best thing I’ve read in what seems like an age.
Excellent article. Thanks for the link.
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!
Your orchard sounds great Ran:) The waiting is a killer! I need to try growing citrus in pots — the fact that I rent has always been a deterrent to investing in things which take a while.
