Getting started

One of the first things that needed to be done when we took over our garden was to fight back against the wilderness that occupied the space we so badly wanted as ours. So a mammoth pruning session ensued (tempered slightly by the discovery of a nest in a neighbour’s overhanging bush that we didn’t want to disturb). The garden was so overgrown that we actually found entire chairs that we hadn’t been able to see inside the mess of ivy and weeds when we started! One imagines that the prince endured a similar challenge when trying to get to sleeping beauty.

Anyway, here it is, our tiny patio garden, cleared of the worst of the weeds and ready for the installation of new fences!

We farm a three acre smallholding in Hampshire, England, having fled London in pursuit of the good life for our little family. We mess about with an assorted menagerie and try to be as self-sufficient as possible in meat and fruit and vegetables whilst enjoying our plot and an outdoors lifestyle with our son. I am the luckiest person that I know.
