The Great Garden Challenge
What started as just a chance to win a wheelie bin cover on someone else's blog has mutated into my own chance to share on the internet. I'm not sure if anyone else is looking, but somehow that doesn't really matter.
I live in Somerset with my gorgeous man and two grumpy cats, and we are currently obsessed with our garden. Just over a year ago we bought our first house. A lovely miners cottage (though not cottage-like in the traditional sense) with a 200 foot mature sloping garden. For mature read overgrown and neglected! With the encouragement of our families, the authorised neglect of our friends and the advice of our next-door neighbours we have attempted to tame some of the wilderness and grow vegetables and a few flowers.
I will use this blog as a chance to share, reflect and get things straight in my head. I know the world is full of witty and erudite bloggers, many with extensive knowledge and wisdom to share. I, however, may just have a witter!
I look forward to spring and the challenges ahead. We have a greenhouse to repair, a lawn to dig up and plant, and a wooded area full of undecided possibilities....
