I figure the pruning, weeding ,digging, is probably better for me than joining a gym.
Like Dove, I like watching the wildlife, picking flowers and fruit and veg, and having enough to give to friends and neighbours, and enough to preserve.
I feel very smug when I can present a dinner when almost everything except meat and cheese has come from the garden.
Millionaires can't buy sweetcorn that taste as good as mine, picked while the water is put on to boil, simply boiled and slathered in butter. You'll never find it in a michelin starred restaurant.
In the words of the advert, priceless.
