Happy New Year?
Yes, I’m being a bit previous. It’s because I’m looking forward to January 2016, the end of the International Year of Soils.
Still puzzled? Why would a down-to-earth climate-friendly gardener, who’s been writing a book on climate-friendly gardening for five years, who’s written a whole chapter of it on looking after soil, who knows that how we treat the earth will help to decide whether human beings have a decent future on the Earth, be looking forward to the time when it’ll be the Year of Some Other Damn Thing?
