Bean Sprouts

Just before Christmas I happened to find Bean Sprouts, a fantastic blog authored by Melanie Rimmer in the UK. I’ve signed up for her daily feeds and every one has been interesting, informative and frequently very funny. For those of you who’ve resolved to be greener in 2008, I promise you’ll find lots of resources and ideas at this site.

“Five of us live in a very small ex-council house with a very small garden on the edge of farmland. We grow some of our food on an allotment a couple of miles away. We keep chickens and bees. We try to be 'green', whatever that means”

I found Bean Sprouts through A Roker Artist. Steph is an artist on her own creative journey, and was one of the earliest visitors to this blog. She also happens to be Melanie’s sister. They live in different parts of England, but somehow I managed to find both of them. What a small and wonderful world.

That's cool. I'll check it out. I bet Lana will like "bean sprouts" as well. We try to be green.

Here we go again with those six degrees of separation! ;)

Charles, We try, but not nearly as hard as we should. I really like getting the daily feed/email because it keeps me more conscious of making that attempt. I think you guys will like it.

Larramie, Isn't it amazing?

Barrie said...

Thanks for the link. I try to be green too. Yes, isn't the world with internet amazing and shrinking?

Thanks for the mention Lisa. I'm having a very productive day today. It's a small world, indeed. I can't remember now if I found you or Scott first, but I'm glad I found you both.

Barrie, I think you'll like Bean Sprouts. It definitely keeps me more focused on trying harder.

Yellow, We're both glad to have found you too.!

Literary Quote

It is worth mentioning, for future reference, that the creative power which bubbles so pleasantly in beginning a new book quiets down after a time, and one goes on more steadily. Doubts creep in. Then one becomes resigned. Determination not to give in, and the sense of an impending shape keep one at it more than anything.

Virginia Woolf
