If you had told me nine weeks ago that I would willingly give up my garden I would have told you that you were lying. I spent a long time dreaming and planning for this season. I have tomatoes from A to Z. My spuds, planted lovingly in September, aren’t due out until March. And don’t get me started on the sweetcorn. I was not intending on moving anywhere as I entered this new growing season.
But here I am just a week short of two months since the last frost day and there appears to be a rather large SOLD sign at the front of my house! Things have moved extremely quickly, and I’m pleased to say the lovely new owners want to use the garden to the full. That for me is a huge relief as there was the possibility that someone would just rip it all out and put in a pool or large deck or something. I worried all my hard work would just disappear… return to the earth unnoticed and neglected.
But it had to be something amazing that would make me hand over my garden to someone else, and indeed it is something pretty amazing. I will continue to garden at the new place, but I will be starting completely from scratch as there is absolutely nothing there except a whole load of wonderfulness and endless possibilities. I can’t wait to get stuck in.
Come again soon – 2018 is going to be a very interesting year.
