The Rime of the Postmodern Mariner

More ramblings of Rhys Hughes.

Adele's allotment is looking more amazing with every week that passes. Here's the dreamcatcher she made to protect her beans, beetroot, peas and herbs from nightmares. Vegetables that have nightmares don't taste as good -- that's a little known fact I made up just now. I have always been conservative when it comes to food (never to politics) but Adele has persuaded me to start eating flowers. Not daffodils and tulips but edible flowers: borage, marigolds and other things that look like daisies but aren't. Back in February this plot of land was an overgrown mess but now it's a lush brightly-coloured paradise of organic food. Gardening is an art form no less creative than music or literature and Adele has proved this through sheer hard work and enthusiasm!

The late US chicken magnate Frank Perdue added marigolds to his chicken feed to give them their signature "healthy yellow skin." (I believe he was the first one to decree that healthy chicken skin is yellow.) Please let us know if your skin changes color! :-)

My skin has changed colour recently, but I think that's because I've been out in the sun...

Marigolds seems to go well with vodka, I don't know why!
