Lavender Picking

Hello and welcome to my allotment and grow your own blog. Let me begin by telling you a little about me.

I am a 36 year old Mother of two, living in Hastings on the south coast of England. I have always loved gardening, especially growing my own fruit and veg and in 2015 I took on my own allotment plot.

This blog will hopefully allow you to follow my journey on the allotment over the coming months and years. I may have had the plot for 3 years this year, but it is still nowhere near how I want it to be!

I will be posting regular updates on what is going on on my own plot, along with general hints, tips and advice and perhaps even the odd recipe or two thrown in!

I love writing and will be recording my journey on the allotment through a variety of different media. I will be showing you the highs and lows of my growing year. I am sure I will have successes and I know I will have failures too. I will not ignore the failures or sugar coat them, this is my real story of what it is like to be part of a new generation of allotment plot holders.

My blog is my written record of my allotment adventures. I also have a Youtube channel here where you can watch tours and updates filmed from my allotment, along with growing guides and info. Or, if pictures are more your sort of thing, then you can follow me on Instagram here.

I love to interact with other people who enjoy gardening and growing, whether you are a novice with nothing but a window box or an expert with a smallholding, I would love to hear from you. Please do comment and subscribe to my blog or any of my other platforms (or all of them!) as I love reading each and every comment and opinion!

Happy growing!
