I’m a working, married Mom of 2 daughters and got the growing bug from an early age helping Dad in the back garden. I have recently acquired an allotment and am keen to experiment with veg that is expensive to buy in the supermarkets and produce enough of the fruit and veg that we eat regularly at home. I have a passion for using recycled bits and pieces and cannot bear to pass a pallet without thinking have I got a use for that?
My aim is to use as many materials that are sourced freely so that I prevent many of these highly useable materials ending up in landfill. At the same time I want to make sure that I have a great looking allotment full of recycled materials and luscious, healthy fruit and veg!
Please feel free to email me with any hints and tips for growing your own or useful recycling ideas.
