Reclutter the garden with consumables
A friend of mine lets call her Liz was so excited about her recent efforts to “reclutter” her garden that she insisted that I blog about it. She didn’t actually remove anything but replacedÂ some of her “pretty plants” with things more of the edible variety.
Her garden consists entirely of pots which tend to require more watering than garden beds. She had a line of pots planted with tall ornamental grass but they were real water guzzlers so she replaced the grass with herbs and salad greens.
She said although she enjoyed watching the grass when it swayed in the coastal breezes she is now so proud of herself when she cooks up a dish with the herbs and greens from her own garden that she has no regrets. It is so satisfying to eat something you have grown yourself and even more exciting when you realise how much money you can save for such little effort.
I feel sure that when I send her the link to this page she will be so pleased that I wrote about her she will invite me over for a delicious lunch prepare from some of her produce. (Take a hint Liz)
Sometimes decluttering can be about replacing one thing with a more useful and satisfying item rather then getting rid of something altogether and this story is a perfect example of that.

An old pair of motorbike boots that had seen better days. One for the trash I am afraid.
