Welcome to our blog. It will follow the development of our garden from quagmire, after completion of our self-build, to a garden that reflects our eco-friendly principles. We are wanting to create a garden that meets our needs as a family but is also a wildlife friendly zone. Well that's what we are hoping, time will tell if we are successful.

The butternut squash is growing finally but with little chance of success,
The curly kale is taking off so hopefully we will have some more greens in late Autumn
The last of the desiree potatoes are ready to come up. They have been fantastic addition to our cooking recently.
This is despite the close proximity of the fleece to the chickens (see back left of photo)
Here are the blue Salvias and the orange ones whose name slips my mind. Any guesses?
These pink ones are Zinnia and are in my safe keeping from a friend. Hopefully they will survive the dog.
I love the luxurious dark purple of the dwarf sweet peas. I hope to collect the seeds and have more next year.
