Bananas, Nuts and a Pest


…Thats me :o) a completely mad novice with gardening, started two years ago, and have got the bug big time and my poor husband gets pestered by me for constructing this and that (he loves it really) being a full time worker, I dont know how I fit it all in, mainly evenings and weekends and inbetween all that I have to rush into the house, spin around at high speed and turn into supermum (no my apron is outside my pants :o) it is just as well that my other passion in life is cooking.

Growing my own veg organically is so rewarding and delicious and cant believe I have had more successes than disasters, so it just goes to show, if I can do it anyone can.

We are still designing and finishing our back and front gardens too, which really does bring out the creative side of me. I have learned so much and the learning never stops.

Anyway thats my tea break over with, off out to collect more eggs and do another military march around my veg plots…
