The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
The Dutch call it white gold. I’m not sure I’m keen on the idea. I’m amazed that so many people here think green asparagus is bad. The white stuff is grown in the dark. Covered over to prevent the stuff of photosynthesis from making it green.

When you grow your own vegetables there’s a lot of different aspects to the job.
