The Garden

I’d like to say that I inherited this mess, but that wouldn’t be true. I’ve lived here for twenty years, raised four children, lost a year or two through health problems, and somehow the front lawn – yes, once this was a lawn – didn’t get the attention my neighbours might think it deserved.


Well, that’s changing now.

I’ve set myself a five year goal:

To convert this (estimated) 400 square yard tangle into productive, no dig, organic fruit and vegetable garden, visually pleasing and environment friendly.

I expect to make mistakes, and to learn from them. And I shall record my efforts, successes and failures, here.

November 19, 2018 Here I am after four and a half months. Five beds prepared and planted, half the fence visible again.

Real progress, but still much backbreaking work to be done.
