Shame on me, that it takes a pandemic to get me writing this blog again. I’ll be honest – I stopped for a reason – basically I was seeing a load of ‘gardening blogs’ that didn’t do anything other than show off what their writers had been growing and I began to wonder if I had anything more than that to say.
Apparently now, I do. I’ve been talking to sundry gardening and non-gardening friends on FB about doing something positive in these strange times of disease and one of them is growing food we can enjoy. I haven’t noticed a run on seeds yet (though there may be) and now is the classic sowing time for home-growing anyway.
When I first started this blog it was on growing non-essentials that were pricey or hard to find as, at the time, basics were easy to get. Times they are a-changing, however, and it’s possible that a getting kilo of onions for 37p in Aldi will soon be a thing of the past.
So the blog’s changing too, at least for the duration. I’ll be suggesting some things to grow and sow each week; ideas that can suit various spaces.
Not everyone’s lucky to have an allotment or even a garden, so I’ll suggest stuff for indoors too.
These veggies will still be ‘events’ – just maybe not the really unusual stuff I talked about in the past.
Let me know what you’d like this blog to be and I’ll try to help.
It’s been a while – welcome back, all!
