Hello! Welcome, welcome.
The idea of this blog has been knocking around my head for a few months now, and I always put it at the back of it because “I just know I won’t have time to update it”. However, if I never try I’ll never know, so here goes my attempt at keeping a blog alive!
It might be a topic I delve into further on, but I got into gardening thanks to my father-in-law and as an outlet to my stress. I am a teacher who is in the first stages on my career and so I spend a lot of time planning, marking and creating resources. My partner’s father started giving me house plants while we lived in a flat just to see if I could keep them alive. And I did!
Now we are renting a house in South Manchester that has quite a big garden – albeit very “concrety”. Since moving in I have gone a bit gardening-crazy. As we don’t own the house, I can’t do any structural changes to it, but I want to try and make it work for me.
There are a lot of allotment blogs, which I adore. But I thought I could blog about growing-your-own in the garden and also maybe houseplants. I would say I am more into flowers than vegetables, but my plan is to get a bit of kitchen garden feel.
As a novice, I will talk about what I grow and how I grow it and whether it works. I will also discuss books, thoughts and perhaps the odd recipe and home decor -especially when the weather prevents me from being in the garden!
I hope you join me on my journey. Do say hello!
