The beginning

Although we live in the North Cornwall countryside we have a very small garden so for the past few years we have been trying to buy a field to use as an allotment and to keep chickens in. But this was to no avail as the farmers either don't want to sell or they want astronomical prices for it! Luckily for me, last weekend a lady we know offered to lend us a field. So now it's all systems go, it needs to be dug over and plants need to be in very soon. This will be my diary so that I can look back and see what worked/didn't work.


Butternut Squash

Broad beans

Luckily I have many plants growing as I always manage to squeeze alot into my tiny garden now they will have plenty of room.

No I'm not planning on keeping sheep but I couldn't resist taking this pic on route to the field. At the weekend I will hopefully remember to take some pictures of the field.
