I'd like to use this fellow to present our forest gardening activities to a younger audience than I'm reaching here on my blog, so I'm trialing him here and welcome any comments. I made him years ago, from modeling clay, leather and cloth and wanted him to be a kindly gardening grandpa through whom I could tell stories from the garden, but I wonder if perhaps he's turned out a little severe, or maybe slightly scary. I'll try a few posts with him doing forest gardening stuff and see how he comes across - if I get a notice from the Broadcasting Commission asking me to take him down I'll know he's not the man/puppet for the job. I've not, in all these years, found a name for him, so if you've a suggestion, feel free to share it.
