Creating a Forest Garden: Forest gardening is a novel way of growing edible crops – with nature doing most of the work for you.

Nessie in the noodles

Noodles are cheapo ramen (3 packets), beloved of students the world over, flavouring sachet discarded and replaced with: teaspoon turmeric, teaspoon cumin, teaspoon Vecon stock. Add chopped kale, a tin of cannelloni beans and a chopped red onion and simmer in plenty water for a few minutes. Serve with dash of soy sauce, a little sesame oil and chopped fresh parsley.
