    Hey Nic,

    I really want to grow my own veg in my garden this year, any tips on your blog as to how I get started and when to start planting, etc.

      my blog is more a photographic diary of my year in the garden than a ‘how to’.
      Much of what I’ve learnt is through trial and error or following the tips of the kindly allotment holders who give me plants!
      There’s lots of info on the net and I particularly like these sites for their usefulness when it comes to what to plant when:
      – Tracey’s I grow veg
      – the Gardener’s World blog
      – the RHS grow your own pages

      Happy gardening :o)

      • 12. Angela De Souza  |  January 24, 2011 at 8:10 pm

        Ooh that’s great, thank you for those websites, I will get stuck into them right away 🙂

        I hope your garden exceeds your expectations this year and gives you a bountiful harvest. xx

    I am so late with my wishes ‘phew’ it’s been a mad one…again.

    Merry Christmas – sorry it’s late and ‘Happy New Year’ here’s to 2011 and all that she brings.

    take care and enjoy the new day/year.

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife E found his playgroup Angel Gabriel costume and photo from 2 years ago and found it amusing how much his arms had grown!

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #oxogoodgrips #cookingwithkidsisfun #avocadoslicer #steeljiggers #stainlesssteeltongs #icecreamscoop #bakersdustingwand  #oxouk E's birthday is about 3 weeks after Christmas so I always start thinking about his celebrations around this time.  We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
