How To Use Companion Planting Without Feeling Stupid – Gardening Mentor
I really got into gardening last year – thanks to one of the hottest and longest summers ever in the UK I was able to grow a bumper crop of salad vegetables meaning I didn’t have to rely on shops, kept my food bill down and knew I was eating healthy and organically grown food.

This Weekly To-Do List Setup Is Low-Key Genius – Buzzfeed
It does annoy me when I see people on various Facebook groups saying that they can’t bullet journal because they’re not artistic enough. When I first started playing around with my paper-based system back in the early 2000’s it most certainly didn’t look pretty – in fact it wasn’t meant to as it’s a functional list.
