i live in a small village on the east coast of sutherland, with my husband, three children and three dogs.
we moved into the house in april 2007 and have 'done it up.' now its down to buisness, as i want to grow my own veg. my husband roles his eyes a lot when i have been talking about it! i've been nagging since we moved in and have finally won!
i have no idea where to start although digging up the patch that 'we' or rather my husband calls the 'royal we' is probably the place to start, so 'we' will be doing this over the forthcoming weekend.
i would like to grow tatties, onions, peas, broad beans, broccili, carrots, runners, peppers, courgette, lettuce, cucumber, spring onions, spring greens - i want to grow everything that i currently spend a fortune on in the shops. i love cooking i love veg so it makes sense!
i would also like chickens, a pig, a goat and a cow but i haven't nagged sufficiently so its just going to be growing veg for now. maybe if i show how much money we will save doing that i may get a chicken or two!
well i shall hopefully be back at somepoint to update the goings on of our garden which i shall call tigh sona garden (happy house garden).
any tips will truly be welcome.
