About me

My mother was and still is a fanatical gardener, so I grew up completely disinterested! Until I got one of my own of course. Our current house is the first garden I have really been able to call my own (if you don't count sharing it with two football playing sons and a large dog). Other half does the labouring jobs for me, bless him, and juices/stews/jams/chutneys all the fruit from the fruit trees.
