Hi all, I'm new to the site.... recently been made redundant and suddenly found time to do something with our acre.... My uncle is an organic grower in Wicklow and has been giving out to me that I have a field that we do nothing with Embarassed so I have no excuse now!
We have started growing a few bits and pieces and have invested in a 40ft tunnel Shocked .... we have just purchased a rotovator too as the area we have had ploughed is a bit too big to have to go at without it! Cool
We are new to growing fruit and veg so I'm sure we'll have loads of questions for all u experienced gardeners! Laughing

Hi sinead and welcome

Sorry to hear about the job. It sounds like you're turning a crisis into an opportunity, so best of luck with that. I'm relatively new here as well but have already learned loads. They're a helpful bunch around here Very Happy

Thanks Foxylock, I'm one of the ones that smiled when I got the news re the job was due back from maternity leave and didn't want to return anyway! Laughing
I'm sure I'll kill off more than I grow Embarassed .... I'll just have to figure out what takes longer for me to kill! Confused Shocked

Well then maybe start with a cactus or some bindweed. Bindweed is almost immortal !!
