Hi I'm new

Post: # 199397Post PaganWitch »

Just a quicky to say hello. :wave:

I have just moved into a new house and now have a garden to plant stuff :cheers: ......
unfortunately it's not been well loved. There's a great nettle patch though and I've enjoyed some nice fresh nettle tea. There's loads of brambles too, and an apple tree, so I'm looking forward to pies and crumbles. I have moved to an area where there is an abundance of wild foraging to be had, Hawthorns, Elders, Brambles, Apples and Pears.

Now all I have to do is get out there and get the ground prepared for next year's planting.

But what to plant and where?
