2018 Growlog, starting afresh
2018 Growlog, a New Year a New Blog
well I’m almost a month behind schedule due to illness and commitments but I’m excited to finally start my 2018 Growlog, this is something that has been eating me up for the last few years but family and work commitments had made it hard to really push my growing like i used to.
One thing that kept creeping up in the back of my head is how much i missed the feeling of having a garden full of plants flowers and vegetables and the grounding effects it had on my mental well being and the happiness it brought.
I used to spend a couple hours a day minimum in the garden and greenhouse but thats not possible anymore with having a young family and a very busy work schedule. So the plan for my 2018 Growlog is to work smarter not harder, acheiving the same results with a massive reduction in time tending to the greenhouse and plants. I’m hoping that this will help me spend more time enjoying the garden and appreciating what that brings to my life.
About the Blog
So this blog is a separate adventure from another i run (around electronics) and focusing mainly on the growing, eating and lifestyle elements. I’m also a keen photographer and I’m hoping to use that throughout this blog when i can.
Outside of those bits I’m excited to see where this goes and pardon the pun but see what it can “grow” into
Alot of what i’ll be comparing my success this year to is what i achieved back in 2014, thankfully i took a lot of pictures and documented the harvest with a good amount of details so i will be intermixed some archive images along side of what i get up to this year.
Below is a picture of my 8×8 greenhouse bursting at the seems with fruit and vegetables
