Meadowland [Jun. 18th, 2015|05:54 pm]
Tony Grist
Matthew sent his man into the fields with a strimmer yesterday and had him cut down all the young saplings.  Woodland, he explains, is worth less than meadowland.

According to the National Trust, Britain has lost 97% of its meadowland since the war. Isn't that frightful!

I took a folding chair into the field this afternoon and sat and read a book (and took a nap) head high in grasses and buttercups.

Hm, would sound interesting, as over here meadowland still being used in the 90s and before now almost all lies fallow. Literally, the food seems to be mostly imported like in another German state that "imported" everything from the outside...
Would wonder if that was the case everywhere else or what other countries are still doing in agriculture in their own lands.

I doubt if any European country is self-sufficient or capable of being self-sufficient in its agriculture.

Self-sufficient would be one thing, but you'd suspect that maybe some of them still do certain amounts of their own because they didn't let it slip that way as in other countries.
