My interest in gardening started at an early age when my dad allowed me to have a small patch of ground behind the shed in his garden. I mainly grew nasturtiums and marigolds that would get devoured by caterpillars every summer. After moving house and not having the room in the new garden, I lost interest in gardening, until I moved into my own flat in 2012. Within a couple of months of moving into my own place, I managed to get my hands on a small allotment measuring 12 metres by 5 and my interest in gardening was sparked again.

After a couple of years, I managed to get myself a much larger plot and gave up the smaller allotment. I now have a large allotment plot and I grow a variety of fruit and vegetables, and also keep a flock of chickens.

I would like to point out that I’m not expert, far from it, I’m very much an amateur gardener and I hope that by starting and maintaining this website, I can improve my skills and also help other people along the way.

Other stuff

Apart from posting updates from my allotment, I’ll also be posting stuff about my adventures about living a more self-sufficient lifestyle and my life in general, whether its foraging, hunting or just something I want to share.
