    Default Hello All 'n Sundry

    [FONT="Palatino LinotyI live in the very wet north west Cavan/ Leitrim border in Erin's Isle. The land of folklore and music, faries and leprechauns and millions of slugs....I moved to the countryside 10 years ago and found that I became busier than ever and have almost no time for gardening at home. So I spend my time gardening for others , mostly in community gardens . I like gardening and painting , drawing , printing making music with other folks. I do grow a lot of fruit however at home. It's a very low maintainance type of activity , and it goes well with the wild wilderness of a meadow where all manor of wildlife is encouraged. I am a true blue organic-er and promoter of permaculture . Also were I live is quite high up and the lack of soil is a issue - not for the unenergetic. I and my daughter have one dog , two cats and two guiney pigs. pe"][/FONT]

    Welcome, Queen Bee. Like you I have precious little soil, but grow in pots, fishboxes, anything I can find. If you have time - and maybe you don't - it's a relatively easy way to grow. anyway, enjoy the Vine.
