It is entirely possible to grow an abundant garden with thousands of pounds (or dollars) worth of vegetables for very little money….literally for pennies. Here I chat abut some tips for gardening on a budget based on my own experiences of gardening for about £2 to £3 per week. Dream big, spend small!
A few technical issues mean that Sunday is a bit late this week……..rather like my mail! My postal service is still very intermittent, about once a fortnight at the moment, so when it does turn up it’s a bumper delivery. This week the other half of my Christmas arrived! It’s a grey, wet day out there so come and relax on the sofa with me for a natter and a cup of tea.
I’m often asked about my shed…..so here it is, hopefully all your questions answered. The shed shell cost money…….but the fit-out and everything you see inside was for nothing…I hope this video will give you some ideas for your fit-out especially if you’re on a tight or none existent budget. It’s all about cramming in the storage/work space while making it a home-from-home. Check out your skips!
I take a look back at the garden this time last year……..it’s only been a year but I have already forgotten so much of this……seeing the garden then and how far it has come gives me a good spurt to get going again.
After a couple of deliveries from seed companies and a sort out of all my own saved seeds I think I finally have all my seeds gathered together for 2021. Yay!
At the beginning of each year I take a day to sort all my bits and pieces for my home…..paperwork, bills, plans, identifying problems etc…..and checking on my safety equipment.
Today I’m having a chat about planning a kitchen garden to maximise the reward of fresh food for the whole year. I share some of my learning from the last few years in my own garden and talk about how I’ll do things this coming year.
It’s the start of a whole new growing year for me……but before I get too excited let’s see how things are looking at the beginning of January. There’s still plenty of good stuff to eat!
A brand new growing year! It’s hard to contain oneself……..we want to get going! Here I talk about the seeds which can be sown this month and the trees/bushes which can be planted. I also outline my planting ‘zone’ and why we don’t use this term in the UK…….and then to chit, or not to chit?!
Goodness me, time flies……it doesn’t seem like 44 months…..but never mind that, haha, there’s a bigger Elephant in the room to consider. Yes, deep breath, it’s time to say goodbye to 2020 on the most positive note possible.
