This is the first of what we hope will become a series of ongoing posts. We are really interested in learning more about foraging and using all the local resources that nature offers us. There’s nothing better than free food that you have picked yourself and its an area we can learn more about as a family.
We knew that moving into a property with 2 acres of land was going to require some up-keep, but it was hard to know exactly how much until we’d lived there for a while. One thing we were sure of is that the grass was going to need a lot of looking after…
As mentioned in the previous post I haven’t had much experience with bringing things on from seed. In the past I have always sown directly into the ground or bought seedlings to plant out. With all the excitement of the new greenhouse, me and the kids set about planting a lot of tomato, pepper and chilli seeds to get us started.
Back when we lived in Hove and grew veg in our garden then later in our allotment we always had a somewhat haphazard approach to which things to grow. The kids were younger and things bit more hectic so we mostly skipped the planning stages and picked up random seeds and seedlings at the garden centre as and when we needed them.
This week has been all about the excitement of the new greenhouse. It was designed, built, and installed by the lovely team over at Woodpecker Joinery. They’ve done an absolutely wonderful job and their customer service was second to none.
