    Default Hello everyone :)

    Hi there!!

    I have joined the forum this evening. I have been reading it for a day and just had to join!

    My name is Tara, I am 24 and I live in Gloucestershire. I have a daughter who is 4 and a half months old. For the past few years I have been eating organic produce (I have too now as I have an allergy to some pestisides ) since the birth of my daughter I have felt the importance of eating organic is higher than ever. I am breastfeeding her and wish to give her the best.

    I have caught the growing bug in the past few weeks, but about 3months ago I bought 2 tomato plants which are out on my balcony and are still producing fruit, just not ripe yet!
    Since then I have now got a marrow, a chilli plant, lots or herbs and planted lots of seeds. Hopefully it will work out!

    My mum is giving me a plot of her garden that she doesnt use so I can grow more produce on there next year.

    Im rambling!!! Annnnyway, thats a bit(lot) about me
