AN EXAMPLE: 

Ellie has lots of bay and rosemary growing in her garden, too much for her family, so she got in touch and asked if we could use it.

"YES!" we said and she brought it round.  

"But how can we thank you?" 

and so began our first barter. We discussed that Ellie had tended these plants herself, watered them and cared for them.  Ellie also pointed out that if she hadn't brought it all to us, it might have just gone in the bin. We decided in the end that we might try out a new recipe - a rosemary jelly - and as long as it works out, we'll give Ellie a couple of jarfuls to say thank you.
