Growing food is a priority for us and we are learning as we go along. We are trying out new and familiar annuals every year and we are particularly interested in perennials. We constantly look for berries, fruit trees and eatable plants that can form a regular source of food. Much of what we plant, we’ve not even tasted before, so we also need to learn to make food in new ways. Read more about what we grow and experience here.
The garden season 2022 is over. To our astonishment, we were harvesting produce, like salad, leek, kale, carrots, and parsnip until the end of November. That is not normal. Yet, it is time to sum up what went well and what we were less successful with this year.
Finishing the roof on our new build has taken time, but with the help from neighbours, family and friends, the roof is finally complete.
