About

Welcome to the 2020 onwards version of Growing My Food. I originally started this website around 2008, when I was a student. I wanted to document my first attempts at growing some of my own food and the site developed quickly into a thriving blog.

Long story short, marriage, family, illnesses, work, etc. got in the way of me getting back to writing about growing my own food and all things organic gardening and foraging-related. I let the domain name lapse…

In the meantime, we managed to get an allotment and have been gradually growing more and more food on it over the last seven years. I hope you will enjoy our journey as it goes forward and feel free to comment, ask questions, and offer advice on any of the topics I cover.

Best Wishes,

Maeve
