We grow our own food in a suburban village in the North East of England. Follow us as we keep up the battle to be self-sufficient.

I took this photo this evening whilst helping volunteers do the final spruce up of Church Green in Whickham, near my home village of Sunniside on Tyneside. The Northumbria in Bloom judges arrive tomorrow. What caught my attention was that the lavendar was buzzing with bees - both honey and bumble. So if you want to be bee friendly as well as having a garden attractive to the human eye, plant lavendar.
