Hello there and welcome to my site! Join me on my adventures in horticulture where I work to transform an empty field in County Mayo, Ireland into what I hope will become a beautiful, productive organic garden growing cut flowers, fruit, vegetables and herbs.

I (usually!) update my blog each week with tales of my gardening successes and failures as well as hopes and plans for the garden, interspersed with recipes inspired by my produce, and struggles with weeds, pests and the vagaries of the Irish weather.

I am a relative newbie to gardening (but a total convert!) so not in any position to offer much growing advice – in any case there are plenty of experts on every element of gardening available online. But I am enthusiastic and ready to experiment and happy to share!
