About me

I live in Essex - I love gardening - I only have a small garden but keep telling friends you can grow almost anything in pots. My daddy (who died in 2001) was thee most amazing green fingered chap. I remember as a child him working all ours and then coming home from night work to go and work on his allotments. For me there is nothing better than picking you veg from the garden and wow! the taste is wonderful. I met my hubby Paul just after my Daddy died and he feels the same about fresh food. We both work full time so we do not have a lot of time in the garden but make the most of the weekends. Paul does all the watering for me and I make sure everything we are growing is going ok. I just have a few problems with our tomotoes at the moment. We have just come back from a break in Wales with Pauls mum and dad and they look so overgrown.(not the in laws) I am not sure what to cut back. I look forward to some good advice from other members.

We are both in mid life Paul will be 50 this year. We do not have any children.

My Husband Paul was raised in South Africa we met on the internet and are extremely happy.

Take are to all.
