  1. Just accidentally discovered you when researching “Lentils” in the garden… PleasantlySidetracked for a couple of hours jumping around your videos. You have been a friend and comfort for me today. I feel I’ve found a common heart in you, and I am so grateful that you simply are. Hugs.

    1. Oh thank you so much Teri, I appreciate your kind words……..and I’m glad I was a good distraction for you today. 🙂

  2. Vivi, can I get on a waiting list for your lavender squares/pillows?

    1. Thank you lovely, I don’t have a waiting list as such but am hoping to make plenty this year as the harvest has been so very good. I’ll let folk know in advance when they go on sale so you should have a good chance of getting one. Thank you so much for your interest. 😀

  3. Vivi, I have shopped your store before. I am a retired Nurse Practitioner in the US. I get a lot of inspiration from your frugality and gardening.
    I hope you do not take what I did upsetting, it was not meant to be.
    Since I could not purchase seeds I wanted to send you something, especially after you mentioned wearing the same trainers for so long. This is not good for your feet, knees, for health etc. I had to “care” for you since that is what I am, having been a nurse for so long and you are as well. This was not done as charity since you provide me with so much through your YouTube vlogs.

    1. Thank you so much lovely…that is so kind and caring of you!!! XXX

  4. Hi Vivi, I thoroughly enjoy your YouTube presence. I feel like I have a lot in common with you and I appreciate your frugal point of view. I’ve had a hobby in textile arts for many years and I find meaning and connection to the universe and nature through my garden. I live in north central California and I come from 4 or 5 generations of gardeners and ranchers, but I spent 25 years working in technical writing. Now that I retired, I’m so thankful to work with the dirt and plants and that I have time to follow you. Indira Rimkeit

    1. Thank you so much Indira. It sounds like you have made a beautiful and balanced life for yourself. We that know the joy of gardening and being with nature are truly blessed. 😀

  5. I am really enjoying your site, your frugal examples, your gardening enthusiasm and your grit. I am so sad about your knee pain. Big Hugs for you! – Kimberly

    1. Thank you so much Kimberly.

  6. Hi Vivi,i do a lot of Ebay and recently decided to start selling vintage linens. However as i hate ironing i have decided against and would like to donate them to you so you can make a few quid from them!
    Payback for all the cheer you provide me with your videos.
    If you email me(marinakaplais@gmail.com)you can let me know where to send them. Theres a fair amount.
    Love Marina
