Sunday, June 16th, 2019

Time to plant out, a little late in the year really for a giant pumpkin, but I’ve had issues with germination, batches of seeds, and today when planting out we had the heaviest hail storm for years, and I got very wet!

Andy’s Honey Stall

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

Last Saturday, I did my first honey stall, at a Local Produce Market at the local village hall, to support the local community. Lets just say it was a great success, and I will be ordering my new honey extractor in due course, with the proceeds! I also sold eggs, and plants from the Allotments.

Welcome to my New Secret Garden

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Lets say the magic word – “Herbidacious”, and welcome to my New Secret Garden …

           Entrance to my Secret Garden

I’m very fortunate, I’ve been after some land, to grow vegetables on for a while, we still await the outcome of funding for our local allotment association.

A neighbour in the hamlet has kindly agreeded to let me have part of the garden to cultivate and grow vegetables, because the garden is very large and it’s too much for them to maintain. This area of the garden used to be culivated and used as a vegetable plot, 10 years ago.

I’m very excited, don’t know, when I’ll find the time, but it’s very close to where I live. It’s going to be a lot of work, but follow the journey here, it starts now…but well worth it I’m sure.
