A newbie from Grimsby

Hello everyone :wave:
I'm fairly new to discussion boards & forums but hoping I can chip in and make talk with loads of like minds who also like to get down and dirty with soil, planting and anything self-sufficientish!
I am what you would call an urban gardener but making every bit of space count. Currently in the process of re-designing my back garden so I can get even more veg in!
Hope to chat with some of you soon.

Best wishes,
Sophie

Hi there and welcome :wave:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

Hello to another fellow yellowbelly :wave:

I am also half way through my re-designing of the back garden (small one) too... and later all of the soil that is not needed is to be removed :roll:

Have fun.
