A cup of tea at the allotment

This is how I make a cup of tea when I visit my allotment at Beelarong.

Don’t you just love the view from the open air kitchen.

I have an old electric water jug that I keep in the car boot. All I need to pack then are a few tea bags, a cup of milk in the jam jar I keep for the purpose and my environmental sustainability mug.

My eldest son is aware of my wish to live sustainably and this is his idea of how I can save water!    Thanks for the mug son.

Drink sustainably, save water

Happy gardening.
