We’ve been here in our forever house for three months already! I can’t tell you how much I love it. It’s home. However there are times I look and get a bit daunted. It’s quite a project we’ve taken on ... as you can see from photo’s below this side of the house is a Victorian Kitchen Garden and it needs some serious love and attention. Thankfully my husband is amazing. He’s spent every weekend in the garden from first thing in the morning until last light with this weekend was no exception; he’s set to clearing the kitchen garden and has made such a difference already. he has repaired the urn with my father in law using a stone glue and I can see the potential .. I’m so excited. You can listen to my father in law fixing the urn using my hairdryer !
As most people renovating a property I have to keep to a budget. The cost of food is going up each year so I think growing more my own fruit and vegetables will be good for my wallet and brilliant on our plates, so I am planning to grow the most delicious things.
I’m really a cook who gardens so I know that I’ll be getting all my plants, seeds, flowers and bulbs from Thompson and Morgan. I love that they are the oldest British seed catalogues in the UK and I’ve been using them for years myself on my allotment. I am currently leafing through their catalogue like I’m looking at a restaurant menu! I want this, this that and the other, but to start with I am going to get some garlic bulbs in and some onions to plant next weekend.
It’s going to be amazing. It’s going to be delicious.
