Nettles nettles everywhere

When we finally got our property lets just say the nettles had taken over. Now I know that they make very good fertiliser, however when you have this many, there is only one option. A petrol strimmer and then hours of hard work getting the roots out!

We finally escaped to the country


In late 2011 we finally did it and escaped to the country. Well to our two acre piece of Lincolnshire. We have already experience successes and failures, from having the largest nasturtiums I have ever seen, to a glut of yellow courgettes, to a temporary greenhouse flying 100 metres away, lodging itself in the conifers at the far end of the field.

Follow our trials and tribulations as we experience village life in the country.
