Getting into shape.

4 days hard graft last weekend and another two this one has got my plot starting to look like it’s on the way to being ready for planting.

Blackcurrant wine – Ribena turbo :)

My enthusiasm for home growing and other stuff of a similar ilk seems to be spreading in the office. One of the lads has veg growing on a small scale at home, so I’m encouraging him to do a bit more. A couple of days ago, I got to talking about home brewing and have […]

Growing frustration

Still not onto my plot and my stress level is beginning to rise as a result. The weather has definitely broken and I’m beginning to get more than a little nervous that the weeds on the plot will have had a major head start by the time I get to turn my first spade full […]

Beeing good.

I don’t know what it is about bees, but their plight really bothers me.
