Longpodjohn's Profile



About me

I'm thirty something, living in rural Norfolk and lucky enough to have good piece of land 2/3 acre to grow my own. I have fields and meadow all around which I'm incredibly grateful for.

I'm not doing too much in the flower garden as we won't be here for too long, so any specimens are for pots but I do plan on natural bird, bee and general wildlife friendly plants.

For anyone curious as to why LongPod, well it's because one of my favourite veggies is a Broad Bean and the long podded varieties taste great.

I like to be organic or as near as practically possible. I believe you should learn from those who know. I don't like to eat anything too genetically close to me or anything I wouldn’t kill myself. I believe what goes around, comes around.
