Paul’s Lockdown Garden

Paul’s Lockdown Garden

In the weeks of lock down one of our customers, Paul has discovered a new strength through the activity of transforming his small back yard into a growing space.

Both of these vegetable beds were made on a back slope of the garden where the soil was mainly thick stony clay, so I dug out the clay and replaced it with top soil and organic compost on the top. As you can see it’s a nice rich black colour now.

I’ve grown broad beans, cabbage, kale, leeks, carrots, corn, runner beans, cucumber and cara potatoes. Many of the plants came from your shop, I’m happy to say!

I believe that finding this new activity has helped me greatly with my own mental health and kept my feet on the ground during these stressful times. Kept me sunny side up! It has given me a new relationship with growth and has been really empowering!
