Totally undeserved yet humbly accepted Liebster Blog Award

My lovely friend Carl Legge, truly generous as he is, did think about my ailing blog when making nominations for the Liebster Blog Award, in an attempt to encourage me to write more.

Thank you Carl, I am honoured by the nomination and humbled - would love to blog more, even though at the moment I seem to be lacking inspiration - and, most of all, time. 
All my free time I spend keeping the plot tidy (endless pursuit as it is), studying horticulture (in order to be able to do more effective plot-tidying...) and translating into English an Italian recipe book of the organic, "real food" persuasion (you have to use up all that produce in the end!). 

But I will, Carl, I'll come back and write about what I've learnt: you are an inspiration with your thorough understanding and openness to sharing.

In the meantime, I keep the picture albums and the interesting links up to date, as that is less time consuming. And I sometimes tweet about my allotment.

The Liebster Blog Award comes with some rules:
  • Thank the person that gave you the award in a post on your own site
  • Nominate up to five blogs with less than 200 followers
  • Let the nominees know they’ve won by leaving a comment on one of their posts
  • Add the Liebster image so all your readers know that you are a recipient.
Bad enough at thanking people, I'm even worse at reading blogs - talk about going out of my comfort zone! Really, I do not read blogs regularly. I follow links on Twitter and search on Google, that's about what I can manage in between all the rest, and how I find interesting content, and people.
Besides, any blogs I have occasionally followed have far more than 200 followers: Carl's Llynlines with his allround sustainable life pursuit, Saidos da Concha with Constanca's home made life,  Il pasto nudo with Sonia's "rebirth" in real food...

Promise I will look out for a couple of blogs with fewer followers, nominate them and let you all know... and you could suggest some for me to have a look at?
