Tesco try to tell me that tomatoes from Barnsley taste better than those from Italy. Along with Wal-Mart they boast of a reduced carbon footprint. We don’t hear much support for the farm workers in poorer countries whose entire livelihood may depend on the export of their crops.This week on the radio I heard naturalists (or are they the ones that take their clothes off to play badminton?) getting all excited because Red Admirals had stayed here through the winter and the blackbirds had sprogged 3 litters.
