    Default New to the Grapevine

    Just a quick post to say Hi!

    My names is Stuart and from Norwich.

    Found the website about a week ago and finding it very helpful. Pretty new to growing our own. We recently moved house and have turned a corner of the garden in to a veg patch after getting a free greenhouse from a friend who was taking to the dump.

    Since then added a couple of raised beds, compost bins, water butts and had some early success with some fairly simple things like Toms, lettuce, rocket, beets and Pumpkins. Just built a new raised garden this weekend, and hoping to grow some spuds next year.

    Really enjoying the early success and hoping next year will be a bumper year.

    Hope to learn a lot more from the site!

    Welcome to the Grapevine. Lucky you, getting a free greenhouse.

    There's a lot of great advice here and we are a pretty good bunch too. Here's to next year

    Welcome Stu. Sounds like you've made a really impressive start - do you think you're addicted already? - be warned it can become all consuming!!

    Hi and welcome. I lived in Norwich until '98 - I had an allotment up near the UEA.

    Welcome aboard Stu - ditto what others have said, you've made a great start already.

    Oh, you will learn a lot here, an awful lot, not all of it garden related!

    Good luck, and keep us posted.
