    This is my first entry on my first day as a member. I have spent a wonderful morning doing the final preparations to my potato bed. I then got the last leeks and parsnips lifted, so totally wind blown and starving I have retired for a quick break. Tonights dinner will be leek quiche with parsnip & apple rosti ( sounds posh but it is quick & yummy) but before that I need to spread a thick layer of compost over 2 more beds.
    I have been a keen gardener for years and moved ...

    Well at last it's Friday last working day thank goodness. Well for this week anyway.

    Let's hope I can get out in the garden this weekend. I know it's early and I'm risking it but I think I might get some potatoes in and plant some sweetcorn.

    I've blogged on and off in one form or another for a few years but, you know, blogging is actually quite hard work! Since this is a gardening blog, I'll start with ... my garden

    Our garden is about half an acre of light sand, fifty yards from the beach, often windswept and sand blasted despite an 8ft tall, 4ft wide and 70ft long pittosporum hedge along the west boundary. The garden is almost completely flat and is sandwiched between the beach 50 yards from the pittosporum ...
