    Default Hello from Hertfordshire!

    Hi everyone! I'm Paul from north Hertfordshire introducing myself. 2nd year grower having taken on my allotment in October 2016. Growing in a daunting 250m2 of land hoping to expand my knowledge and get new ideas!

    Happy growing!

    Hi Paul and welcome to the vine.

    One thing you might notice about the vine is that it's full of enquiring people.

    With that in mind, hows your experience been - pit falls and triumphs, preferences and dislikes, fave things to grow, weirdest thing you've grown, etc, etc, etc.

    Good question - last year as my first year was a breeze, certainly compared to this year. A combination of not overthinking and beginners luck meant I had few disasters. This year, with the harsh late spring, early heatwave and searing dry summer heat meant I had far more. The biggest challenge was slugs early days. I sowed everything at least 3 times and eventually came good.

    Nothing quite compares to the excitement and expectation of digging up potatoes for me.

    Thanks again for the welcome!
