In the beginning ...

victoria plums, damsons and greengage
I have decided to start another blog that just features the vegetable growing side of my garden. Although the garden has mixed plantings of flowers, veg, herbs and fruit in the traditional cottage garden style my heart has always been with the edibles ever since I took on my first allotment many years ago.  There have been several gardens since then but the one I have now is the culmination of all the experience I have gained over the years.   I spend many hours a week tending my plots throughout the year and find time passing quickly when I am absorbed in the many and varied tasks. Of course, however much time I spend, it is never enough, the list of jobs to do is endless. Sometimes I long for the winter where I can look out of the window and know that gardening year is over and I have a little breathing space to make plans for the next year.  Then as the year turns I begin to look forward to Spring arriving and the whole cycle beginning again.

This blog will be the story of providing food for the table, season by season, the triumphs and failures; sowing, growing, harvesting and preserving - a journey  that I hope you will take with me.
