I have been considering, pondering, wondering and threatening to start a blog for some time, but until now it has not been a reality. However various things have happened that meant there has never been a better time to start than right now. So with crab apples boiling on the hob (more on that later) and the house marginally less messy that it was earlier, I have decided to get on with it.
So what is this all about? That is really the question that has taken some time to answer. I am Scientist by day, but when I am not professionally occupied with that, I have a range of interests, the diversity of which has often been the subject of comment. These include designing and making things such as clothes, hats, other sewing bits, metalwork, DIY, cooking, gardening, permaculture, forest gardening, sport, yoga, bushcraft, beekeeping. I could go on.
First of all I thought I would write a blog about trying to turn my garden into a permaculture forest garden and my love of obscure plants. My recent trip to buy obscure fruit and vegetable plants from Edulis nursery spurred me to get on with writing blog, but i think its scope will be broad ranging that just food and gardens, and will take in all subject that occupy me.
