In the Spring of 2013 we left the city behind and moved to a lovely little cottage on the edge of the Scottish Pentland Hills, just South of Edinburgh.
After a glorious Summer of simply enjoying having one, the first time since being ‘grown up’, it was time to start ripping everything out and start again. Neither of us have much experience of gardening, or are that practical for that matter, so we’re pretty much just making it up as we go along.
We like to grow edibles and are keen on trying unusual or heirloom varieties, things that you can’t easily get in the shops. We have some successes, we have plenty of failures too, every day is indeed a school day on our little patch.
This blog is a diary of our Pentland garden.
