    Default Yoooo hoooo! Remember me? :)

    Hello peeps, not sure if anyone will remember me, it's been a couple of years (ish) since I posted I think. There's been loads of changes in my life (most of them bad, lol) which meant I was kinda gardenless for a while, this was probably the best thing since I certainly had no motivation to grow things anyway!

    I'm now in a new place both mentally and physically, not exactly where I'd like to be but I'm trying to do the old 'be grateful for what you have' thing as the reality is, this may well be 'it'.

    So, I have a garden and I'm getting back into growing. For 2 reasons mainly: 1) My finances are awful, I'm so skint I'm probably skinter than any skint thing you can imagine and I need to up my health, @12p a tomato where I live now, it makes sense to try to grow the particular things I eat/need. And 2) I enjoyed it before and I miss pottering in my tunnel tbh. So it's a mix of want and need basically.

    So, hi to all old timers and hi to all new faces.

    I already have questions so I'm off to plague you with them. Have a happy day.

    Thanks all. It's nice to be back tbh, I'd forgotten what a nice site this was.
