  1. That’s great to hear, there’s really nothing more rearding than growing your own. I was raised on a small dairy farm and whilst we had a small vegetable garden I didnt really appreciate the value of home produce until recent years. Now I manage organic kitchen gardens, grow successive crops for harvesting, fruit for preserves, jams and chutneys. I love everything about home grown and hope the next part of my horticultural journey enables me to encouarge more families to grow at home. Really enjoy your articles have bookmarked them for later as many of the places you visit I have also been, enthralled by your travels.
