Thanks for joining me! I’m Gemma and I live in Staffordshire with my husband, ten-year-old daughter, our pet rabbits, Ginny and Luna, and our pet guinea pig, Fred (who it turns out is actually a female but the name has stuck!)
Over the last few years I have been working on changing my end-terrace garden into a home allotment and haven. There is still much to do!
Here I hope to share with you lots of changes, successes, and failures in my gardening journey along with things to do with your produce – an area I’m trying to learn more about all the time.
I will also share where I went wrong so you can avoid making the same mistakes. I make a lot of mistakes so this will be a prevalent part of the blog!
I hope I can encourage anyone to just give it a go no matter who you are, what job you have, how big your garden is or how much you have to spend. There is nothing more gratifying than seeing those first shoots poking through the ground from a simple seed, eating something you have grown from seed or indeed just sitting outside with a cuppa and watching the birds.
I love spending time in the garden. I find it a lovely way to relax. I hope I can translate that onto the page (or screen, more specifically).
Feel free to post comments, follow me on Instagram @notesfromthegardenshed or ask me any questions about growing your own.
