    Default Shwmae! From south Wales x

    Hello!

    My name is Sam, I'm 27 and I am from a little welsh valley near Swansea.

    I live with my partner of 9 years Owen, our 7 year old son Benjamin and our 15 month old daughter Holly. I work part time as a sales assistant and my partner delivers courtesy cars for an insurance company.

    We recently moved from a horrible council flat into a 'work in progress' 3 bedroom house but we are lucky as it has a lovely garden. My partner has already commandeered his patch for his shed so now I have demanded a vegetable plot :-)

    I already have a greenhouse set up (one of the plastic covered tubes) and my garden gets a fair bit of sun all day and has a sun trap near our back door.

    I am hoping this year to try and grow as much as I can firstly to help our struggling food budget and secondly show and teach my children where and how they get their food.

    I will be looking for plenty of help and suggestions as I am a complete novice to this but have picked up lots of seeds in preparation (yes I checked the dates too) and may also be getting a compost bin from a council scheme and a water butt from freecycle.

    I look forward to getting to know you all soon and learning more.

    Love

    Sam

    Croeso, Welshmummy! You'll find everyone here very helpful and knowledgeable - so ask away.
    I think your water butt would have been overflowing today - its been very wet here in Carmarthenshire.

    Okay, Okay. We've got the message - you're not really Welsh. Bet you wish you were!!
