The Field

Our little adventure into Permaculture and Organic Vegetable growing, starting with a small blank field that floods and making it into a Wildlife haven for birds, insects, amphibians and wild flowers, and at the same time providing our food. Learning as we go, leaning towards Permaculture methods, but not exclusively and adopting any ideas that seems helpful.

Fiona Grows Food

Fiona first began gardening in 2012 and in the subsequent years, her addiction to dirt, muck and anything downright filthy has taken over her life.

Fiona only grows organic food and is not now, or never shall be affiliated with chemical weedkillers or pesticides.

Fiona’s 100sqm allotment is in Malahide, North County Dublin.

Flighty’s Plot

Flighty’s Plot will be all about my allotment. Mind you looking out of the window here in London this grey, wet morning I could be excused for having second thoughts! I have a lifelong love of gardening but do not have a garden. Owning and working this plot will therefore be a welcome pleasure for me.

Fred, avid gardener

For me, gardens are a passion and especially a hobby.

When I was a child my father gave me a little border of his garden to maintain and grow what I wanted. It was certainly the starting point, the click ….

I didn’t understand until about 30 years, once owner of my house with a large garden. My many trips, from which I brought back seeds and cuttings, have grown this passion, this need to sow and succeed to grow what at first glance is difficult here.

This blog is a new challenge. English is not my native language because I’m French, but I enjoy discovering, learning and sharing what I like…

The Frustrated Gardener

Realising I was forgetting much that I had learnt about gardening and needing a hobby that would distract me from work, I took up writing this blog in June 2012. It has been everything I hoped it would be, connecting me once again to my great passion in life and to like-minded bloggers.  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
