Hello and welcome!

Hi all!

Thanks for checking out this new blog that I’ve started with my fiancée Sarah. We are both greatly interested in growing our own food and making things go further. Since living together and more so since moving into our new home we have been looking into more ways in which we can make the most of what we have. I recently posted on another blog I write on about our first steps into self sufficiency and realised that there is a lot to share here. I spoke a little about our plans to start growing some veg in our compact garden. There’s other ideas we have had here that we will work on and explore.

Sarah has had experience growing a range of vegetables, both at home and on a college course. Before we moved in together she was growing produce in pots at her mums, making the most of limited space available there. She’s excited about our current place as we have more space to play with. I’m a gardener by profession, and have some runnings with vegetable gardening for clients which we have also reaped some benefits of. In terms of gardening for myself: when I was growing up we had a vegetable patch in our garden which I worked on for a couple of years with my dad.

We are both really excited about what lies ahead with our garden, not just in the produce we will grow but in terms of other areas of self sufficiency we will explore. These are the first steps of a longer journey, and we look forward to sharing this journey with you.

Thanks for reading
