I carried several small bags of dry food, things like pearl barley and bruised oats. I planned to plant some seeds so I bought a mini bag of compost and four propagator trays – I strapped the trays to the flat bit directly behind the seat of my bicycle and put the compost in my back pack, it was heavy. Yesterday May felt like March, and the damp wind, still tinged by winter, stung my face and hands. I filled the basket at the front of my bicycle with groceries. The weight on my back made me wobble…I saw myself in the future, riding along on a rickety old bike, towing a trailer of garden tools and seedlings, annoying the traffic, struggling up a hill, making the most of everyday.
