Hello

Post: # 224239Post misty44 »

Hi all

Just joined today. Currently living in West Yorkshire and was going to spend the day in the garden but woke up to an inch of snow and it's still snowing so thought I'd catch up on some reading.

I'm in the process of becoming self-sufficient. Last weekend I built my first compost bin, laid the garden out ready to start working, ordered what I think I will need from Thompson and Morgan etc.

I've got a very big garden but last year only really managed to establish the herb garden. This year and growing potatoes, onions, garlic and have ordered peppers, chilli and salads for later.

I've also planted pots, added shrubs and ordered a range of flower seeds so all in all hoping for a productive and rewarding year in the garden.

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!
